Glisser Stream is our very own streaming solution. Glisser Stream enables you to broadcast a stream (host a one way stream similar to Vimeo and Youtube), or host a video conference (a two way stream ideal for breakout sessions).
Within your session, click on Live Streaming and turn on the toggle.
Once you turn on the toggle, a pop up will appear. Here you must select Video Conference. From the sources drop down, you will need to select Glisser Stream. The master view refers to whether you would like the slides or the video stream to take up the largest part of the audience view. When hosting a video conference we would recommend setting the master view to Video.
Click on SAVE.
It is important to note that Glisser Stream Video Conferences can not be recorded. If you would like to record your session then we would recommend using a screen recorder.
Click on the Live Control Panel to open the Live Control Presenter Green Room. To share the Live Control link with any speakers or hosts you may click on the clipboard image. This will copy a link which can be shared.
You will be taken to the lobby which looks similar to the below. Here you can turn on your microphone or camera, amend your name, and welcome any of your speakers who may be joining ahead of the delegates. If your camera is not on then it will display your initial(s) or gravatar.
To change your view, you must click on the tile image to switch between displaying panel view or speaker view. This affects your view only, your speakers will have the ability to amend the view for their own screen.
If you are the moderator (there will be a crown by your name). Moderators have the ability to mute people, disable cameras, and kick people out of the stream if necessary.
Once you are ready to go live you can click on GO LIVE. You will then be taken to the Live Control screen. This is where you can present your slides, manage any Q&A, and also view what is currently occurring during the live stream. Delegates will now be able to join your session via the audience URL.
Delegates will have access to the chat feature within Glisser Stream Video Conference. This is kept separate from the Q&A tab in Glisser, and the chat is not stored in your analytics.
When you are ready to end the session, you may click on END SESSION. This will then take you back to the lobby.
To head back to your session/event dashboard you may click on the arrow displayed in the top left corner of your screen.
Live Control Symbols
Here are the symbols displayed in the live control panel and what they do:
Session Duration: This shows you how long your session has been live for.
Keyboard Help: This will display the hotkeys which are used when presenting. You must click on this a second time to take the hotkeys down.
Lead View: This will display the slide deck and polls in full screen mode.
Projector View: This will open in a second tab and is ideal for relay screens.
Stream Overlay Position: This will rearrange your stream so that it is placed in a suitable position for you.
Live Control Link: This allows you to copy the live control link and share with a host, speaker, or a member of your team who needs access to the live control panel.
End Session: This will end your current session so it is no longer live.
Ensure that there are no more than 20 people in a room as this will have a significant effect on call quality.
When both audio and camera are being accessed this uses more bandwidth. Therefore, it is recommended that you connect to a hardline.
If you are in an open environment that is prone to audio feedback and echoes then you should wear headphones. If you don’t have headphones, then lowering the volume of your device may help. (Remember, sound reflects on walls so some individuals will have better audio than others based on their surroundings).
Each attendee can reduce their call quality within Glisser Stream.
When you are not speaking, mute yourself!
