Louroe Line Powered Microphone

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Apr 01, 2012

Many IP video cameras contain microphones that do not provide enough fidelity to record more than muffled audio. When high-quality audio recording is required, external microphones must be installed. Unfortunately, these external microphones often must be powered from additional power supplies. Louroe Electronics has announced a new line of microphones designed to eliminate the need for external power. In this note, we examine the first product in this new line.

Louroe Electronics, based in California, manufacturers a variety of products for use in audio monitoring and intercom applications. As we have previously noted, the company is widely recognized among security integrators as a specialy vendor of audio recording hardware for video surveillance.
