We do not recommend the use of the wireless microphones in Dalby hall due to inherent
problems with static, fadeout and interference from other devices. Instead, we strongly recommend using traditional hand-held wired microphones.
Experience has shown that hand-held, wired microphones give the most
consistent, reliable and high-quality sound. For experienced mic users who desire a lapel-style mic, we have two wired lavaliere (lapel-style) mics that can give good
results if used correctly. For proper sound, these mics must be properly installed on the speaker (see the
article below) and then carefully tested BEFORE the event. It takes about 10 minutes to do this, so please be sure to allow for this time.
If you truly feel you must have wireless mics for your event, we do have a few that can be used only in Dalby hall: We have two wireless hand-held mics and one wireless
lavaliere (lapel-style) mic. If
your event requires more wireless microphones, you will need to make
your own arrangements. All wireless mics require sufficiently-charged batteries to be correctly inserted into the mic. We recommend using batteries that are 100% charged.
Note that Dalby hall is the only venue at MUM with wireless microphones. We currently do not have wireless microphones in any venue except for Dalby hall.
