Hey duotone, I’ve used this mic. It has about a 145degree pickup pattern and would be good for a table of panelists. It is a condensor mic that uses phantom power (not from a battery) and does a good job for the price of picking up a wide angle such as several people along a table.
Something more directional would be good for the audience. I use the Azden SGM-1X shotgun mic. However, like all shotguns, it is very directional, so if it’s not directly pointed at the person speaking, it rejects the sound. Therefore a wider angle mic would be better suited for the audience.
