Please arrive early so you can log-in, practice the controls and be granted the required Presenter admin privileges.
Presentation Zone Instructions
As an Admin or Presenter in a presentation zone, you automatically see an additional (^) icon next to your Camera and Mic On/Off buttons in the User Bar. This gives you the ability to point your microphone, camera, and screenshare to "Current Zone" so your presentation can be seen and heard by everyone who is in the zone regardless of distance.
Open the Mic drawer (^) and change Mic Distance to "Current Zone"
Once connected, when you unmute your mic you will see a message "You are sharing your Mic to the current zone"
To share your webcam and screenshare to the zone, open the Camera or Screen drawer (^) and choose "Current Zone".
When sharing to the zone, a preview of your webcam and screenshare will appear as popup windows in the bottom-right corner.
Stop screen or camera share by clicking the on/off buttons in the user bar, or the "Stop Share" button on the preview window.
Presenting to a Media Screen
Click the Presentation Screen or Controller and you will be prompted to choose which media source to share on the screen.
Choose what you'd like to share, and it will cast to that screen object.
When sharing your screen, your microphone will connect automatically to the screen.
To stop casting, press stop or click the context popup and choose another broadcast distance. These aren't related to the screen object you're sharing to.
Please arrive a few minutes early so that we can give you admin status to use these controls.
- Your Mic or Camera is pointing to the wrong place (Nearby, Current Zone, Media Screen)
- You have not enabled camera or microphone permission at the Chrome browser Level.
- You are not connected to the appropriate Audio or Video input or output. Adjust this via User Profile (Click your avatar image in the bottom-lefthand corner) User Profile Settings Audio & Video Tab and Adjust input/output options via dropdown menu
- You have not selected the appropriate share option from the prompt
If that does not fix the issue, please also check: System Preferences Security & Privacy. Select the Screen Recording tab and choose the apps that you want to allow to record the contents of your screen.
** Note the platform does not support presenters screen sharing PowerPoint presentations that contain video content. Please ask your project manager for guidance on the best way to share video content. **
