With SlideSync, you can broadcast an event without needing to have all your speakers in the same room.
This feature is available to all subscriptions and supports up to 8 active speakers in parallel with video, or 25 speakers without video.
SlideSync shows all active speakers in a tile view. From three speakers on, the currently speaking person is automatically given more space (Active Speaker Detection):
Users with Event Owner or Event Manager roles are able to manually control the layout (see below).
All you need to do is create individual Speaker accounts for all your speakers.
Usage by speakers
Speakers log into SlideSync and navigate to the desired event. They then start the Live Producer.
The Live Producer shows a preview of the video signal and allows to switch camera and microphone if desired. If Live Producer is opened for the first time, the speaker will be prompted to allow access to the camera and microphone.

Users with the Event Owner or Event Manager roles can also manually spotlight individual speakers by selecting the pin icon that appears next to their name in the attendee list.
Privileged users can also remove speakers from the conference.

Please note that participants always participate via web (unless you book a dedicated telephone dial-in for participants).
