The Feeds tab hosts most of the action during an event.
The Feeds tab will contain all information and video feeds for your presenters, and who will be live. To begin, a large button directly below the navigation will allow you to invite presenters if this hasn’t been done already. You can invite by email, or invite by sharing the link provided within the “Invite Presenters” Drop down. A presenter’s email must be entered in to the invite field in order for them to gain entry to the room.
Below the invite box populates a feed of presenters within your greenroom, as well as yourself if a webcam is attached.
An individual’s presenter feed will display their name, role in the room as well as a small settings option, signified by three vertical dots. Microphone and Video on/off toggles exist there. You can mute/unmute camera and mic for each presenter individually at any time.
Clicking a presenter feed will highlight it in red as that presenter is selected to be a part of your shot composition.
Once you have selected one or more presenters for inclusion in a shot, below the presenter thumbnails, you’ll find your template options for pushing a shot live. Within the shot options you will see the layouts available for you to use, a list of presenters included in the shot with the upload internet speed of the presenter, as well as the large red button to publish the changes, and push the stream live.
Make sure your presenter’s feed is at minimum 1mbps. If not, your live experience will be degraded with the potential for stuttering, sync issues and poor output quality.
Making sure presenters have a profile picture uploaded will provide a backup visual incase a live video feed cannot be maintained.
Selecting multiple feeds expands your layout options, allowing you to mix and match. Modify the order of the presenters below by clicking and holding the three dots on the left of a presenter’s line within the shot composer. Once you click “Go Live” your shot is pushed to the left hand panel for output capture.
Spend some time composing shots to understand which options you will use during your live show.
