June 16, 2017 – Orland, FL

Crowd Mics was named Best New Product Technology – 2nd Place – in the Innovation Showcase at Infocomm 2017. “We are honored with this award and appreciate the support and enthusiasm of Infocomm attendees.” commented Tim Holladay, CEO and co-founder of Crowd Mics. Infocomm is the pro audio-visual industry’s marquis event and this year didn’t disappoint with record breaking attendance. Crowd Mics turns phones into microphones and that resonated with the industry. “@crowdmics by far one of coolest products I have seen in awhile. Great job!” tweeted Tommer Catlin‏ @theetommer, a sentiment that was shared by all who stopped by the booth for a demo.

Crowd Mics powers audience interaction with text commenting, live polling, and phones become wireless microphones for Q&A sessions in lecture halls, corporate meetings, and live events. Contact for more information. See the Infocomm video below published by rAVe Publications.

Fear of Public Speaking > Fear of Death

Number two fear is death! Death is number two?!

Gotta love Jerry Seinfeld. For most people (more than 75%) the fear of public speaking is very real. It’s at least enough to discourage them from raising a hand, waiting for someone to run them a microphone, stand up, and ask a question in front of 200 of their peers. This is the scene for millions of meetings, conferences and school lecture halls.

We’re Crowd Mics so we’re all about mics! With our platform participants download and app and can use their phone as a microphone and this makes Q&A so much less intense and more convenient. But we don’t just sell the microphone of the future (we do though), we sell audience interaction. We’ve found that the 75% of the audience who won’t use the mic are loving our text commenting feature. They send a brief comment to the moderator who can then review it and address it. Participants can also answer anonymous polls. It’s about audience interaction, not about running a microphone or emailing questions during a session.

Crowd Mics Online gives you all of the text commenting and live polling features but with no app to download and no WiFi requirements. Try it at your next meeting, event or lecture.
