I emailed Microsoft about this and was told to ask here, so here goes :)
We received an Xbox One from Microsoft just after its launch.
We are using the Xbox one in a school for Skype sessions, in a School In The Cloud Room, if you know anything about The School In The Cloud, you'll know that these rooms can get a little noisy.
The problem we are having is the Skype "Granny" just cannot hear the children properly. If the child comes and stands RIGHT in front of the Kinect (which is up at the top of the wall) she can hear a lot better, but because of the way the room is designed they have to stand right in front of the prjected image and under the kinect (out of view) so then she has difficulty seeing the child who is speaking.
What I want is for a Mic to hang from the ceiling at the BACK of the room, the child comes up and speaks into the Mic and the "Granny" can still see the child.
What I want to know is:
1. Can I plug in an external Mic? USB?
2. Can I increase the sensitivity of the Mic on Kinect manually, without having to go through the "Sound test", that never sets the Mic high enough.
3. Anybody else have any other ideas of how we could get around this problem.
Hope someone can shoot some ideas,
