What To Tell Your Presenter?

Glisser enables you to broadcast a stream (host a one-way stream using Vimeo, Youtube, or others) or host a video conference (a two-way stream ideal for breakout sessions), below is our guide on what to tell your presenter when using Glisser Stream Broadcast.

Speaker First Steps:

Below are the steps a speaker should take to join a session, detailed steps, best practices, and additional information are outlined further down.

  • Join via the chair link that you were sent.
  • Create a guest account if you haven’t already done so. Please see our guide on guest accounts for additional information.
  • Once you are in the live control green room, check your camera and microphone are on or off based on what’s been asked by the organiser
  • If you need to change your display name, follow the steps mentioned below.
  • You can communicate with other presenters when you are in the live control panel green room. Once the organiser is ready to go live, they will let you know.
  • The organiser will start your broadcast. Once the stream is live, they will then make the session live in Glisser and you will be redirected.
Speaker Best Practices:

As all speakers and moderators will be on the same moderator panel, it’s crucial to establish a few important rules for the speakers to follow. The following is what to tell your presenter for the best experience:

Presenter View (Youtube Video included)
  • During the presentation, if the speakers aren’t speaking, it’s recommended to mute themselves to avoid any noise coming through while another speaker is presenting. Speakers can mute simply by clicking the microphone button, toggling between on and off (shows a slash through the microphone button).
  • Confirm ahead of the event who will be presenting your slide deck through the “slide remote” tab. This orange arrow symbol (shown in the above screenshot) allows you to click on the next slide. Alternatively, if you need to go back then you can click on the left arrow.
    Please note that clicking this will update the audience view, so be sure not to click on it if you are not the designated person.
  • Ensure that only one person is clicking the orange arrow to progress through the slides within the presentation to ensure consistency for both speakers and audience members.
  • The speaker will see the presentation changing as per the moderators’ actions.
  • There is no need to navigate to the “moderation” tab unless you have been granted permission to accept/reject incoming Q&A.
  • To toggle your view between speaker and tile view, simply click the toggle tile view button.
How to Change Speaker Display Name:

The name will default to the guest account email/name when you sign in. There are two ways to change this.

Method A: Click on the arrow to the right of your screen, select your image and amend your name.

Method B: Select your icon (this will show your gravatar image or account initials), then edit your display name.

Live Control Symbols for guests

Here are the symbols displayed in the live control panel and what they do:

A – Keyboard Help: This symbol will display the hotkeys which can be used when presenting. You must click on this a second time to take the hotkeys down.
B – Lead View: This symbol will open the lead view in a second tab.
C – Projector View: This symbol will open up the projector view in a second tab.
D – Stream Overlay Position: This symbol will change the stream overlay position, therefore, rearranging your camera icon so that it is placed in a suitable position for yourself.
