New Feature Alert: Enhanced Presentation Features

Presenting is one of the essential parts of video conferences. We added a new way to share your screen and redesigned the presentation section within the prebuilt user interface for SaaS customers and for eyeson API customers.

The new presentation dialogue

Clicking on the presentation icon on the left side (bright mode presentation-icon_white) (dark mode presentation-icon) brings up the reworked presentation dialogue:

The new presentation dialog.

Depending on your use case, you can choose the presentation option which fits best.

  1. If you want to share a file (pdf, image or video), choose the last option.
  2. If you want to share a browser tab, an application window or your entire screen, the first three options are best.

The new "share screen as additional user" option

Chose the first option "Share screen as addition user" to share your screen in the presentation mode layout.

This means, that you can share your screen, tab or application window in the big stream above up to 6 participants including yourself.

Screen share (pdf) with 6 video call participants

Please note that presenting this way establishes a second upload stream and therefore needs additional upload bandwidth.

This feature is supported on all desktop browsers (Windows, macOS, ChromeOS, Linux).

We're always happy to hear your feedback, so make sure to let us know what you think!
