Video Layout and Display

This Video Layout and Display area allows conference controllers to spontaneously control and adjust all aspects of conference video. When first accessed, this area displays the video layout as selected during conference scheduling. From this view, the conference organizer can do the following:

  • View which terminals are set for which video frames in Continuous Presence mode.
  • View a list of scheduled attendees per terminal by placing the mouse over a video frame (frames set to auto-switch will not display names).
  • Rearrange video layout per terminal by clicking and dragging terminal names from the Control Panel's terminal list to the desired frame.
  • Set voice activated subframes.
