When accessing to a room of meeting of Season Connect, will see a series of signposts with different functionalities: share content, video of the webcam, participants, chat, etc.
This is the appearance of a room of meeting of Season Connect:
By defect, the microphone and the camera come desactivados to provide the control to the user that connects . In the bar of control of the top of the window, can see a series of icons. When the icons are in white, means that this functionality is desactivada. When puncturing on one of the icons, this will happen to green colour, indicating that this functionality is active.
Activating the micro
To activate the mircrófono, have to puncture on the corresponding icon of the bar of control. When it was in green will have the "micro open" and will be able to oirnos any person that was connected to the sala.
If we have of several microphones, can select one puncturing on the flechita that appears at the side right of the icon.
When there is more than 2 users in a room, is some best practices, silenciar the microphone once has finished to speak not to enter noise in the conversation. For this, simply have to puncture on the icon of the microphone. We will see that it appears lined.
When puncturing again in the icon of the microphone, will enable it so that our signal of audio arrive to the room.
Activating the camera
The activation of the camera web realises in 2 steps . In the first only we will see the signal of the camera, like a previous sight. In the second step will transmit the signal to the sala.
To activate the webcam have to puncture on the corresponding icon to the camera , or, in the button of the block " Video " designated " Initiate my camera Web ".
When doing this, as we already have commented, will see the signal that issues the camera in " previous Sight ". To send definitively our signal of video to the room, have to press this time the button " Initiate use shared ".
In the central part of the screen appears by defect the block to share content. When puncturing in the right lateral arrow, will deploy the menu that will allow us choose between sharing the screen of our team, share a document or a blackboard (screen in white where can do annotations).
The use shared of documents has the following advantages in front of sharing screen:
Greater fidelity in the experience of visualisation of the participants.
Lower requirement of bandwidth for presenters and participants.
More options of navigation and possibility to synchronise with the participants.
Previous load and organisation of the documents in the sala.
Presentation simpler when there are several presenters.
When puncturing in sharing screen, have the option to choose the desk, an application or a concrete window of which have open. In the left inferior part have of an option to happen to way of complete screen to the participants of the meeting, so that they visualise better the content.
When sharing the screen, have of a bar with the basic controls that we can need (detain the use shared, camera, microphone, speaker, participants, chat and notifications).
Anytime, the user that shares his screen can do a pause and take an instantaneous of the screen to realise annotations on the same. Later it can restart the use shared if it wishes it.
Another functionality that can result interesting, is the one to take the remote control of the screen of an user. Only the users with role of host or presenter have of a button to request the control of the screen that is being shared.
In any case, the user that shares screen will receive a notification with the request and will be able to accept it or refuse it.
If we select to share a document, will appear a window that will allow us look for it in our team.
They can share the following types of archive: PPT, PPTX, PDF of Season, SWF, FLV, JPEG or Mp3.
