Pin a participant’s video

When there are multiple people sharing video in a meeting, it can get confusing for participants to follow. You can “pin” a presenter or participant’s video. This means that only a designated participant’s video shows on the room’s display.

Note: This will only pin the video for the room.
This will not pin the video for others in the meeting.

  1. Tap on the participant’s name on the console
  2. Tap Pin

Manage the screen layout

Note: If you have a single display, you can choose between showing just shared content or showing content and a row of people.
If you have two displays, one will show content and the other will show people.
Selecting Layout will swap which display shows which.

  1. Tap Layout on the console
  2. Toggle between the different layouts for your room display until you find the one you want
