Recommended Equipment - Web Meetings
Your appearance DOES matter online. These are easy to set up and use.
At the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance, we strive to provide top-quality meetings. Now that we have transitioned to an online platform, we have found a few products that help us serve our members and we thought that we would share them here.
Please use the links below to place your order. You will be ordering directly from Amazon, not from GMA. Quantities are limited due to the high demand for new home offices. Some of these items may only be available as reconditioned or used so be sure to read all of the details. These products are not manufactured in Georgia, but I would gladly test any competitive products that are made in our state.
This is how my office is set up. I used the ring light tripod to hold the webcam since I have a wall mount monitor - not a laptop. Be sure to adjust your camera to be at eye level and take time to play with your background and lighting to ensure a professional appearance. The Blue Yeti mic has a headphone jack. I found if very helpful to wear a single earbud until I got comfortable with how the mic performs. I was surprised to learn how much I tap on my desk, and this is not pleasant for your listeners...
GMA Office Set-up
After testing and reviewing a wide variety of microphones, we believe that this is the best value on the market today.
Be sure to double-check the DELIVERY date on all Amazon orders! The products recommended here are not from GMA. We are providing this information just to make it easier to find good products. We have noticed that prices have increased due to demand since more people are setting up home offices. Our team hopes this information is helpful.
