Zoom Meetings and Webinars

Our Zoom SDK (Software Development Kit) allows you to integrate your Zoom webinar or meetings into Glisser. Before beginning, it’s certainly worth bearing in mind that this link with Zoom currently has more limited features than a direct Zoom call. If you would like to use Glisser and Zoom natively – you can add this as a related content link or, use an alternative platform such as Jitsi or BlueJeans.

Panel View in Zoom Webinar

When presenting your broadcast with Zoom Webinar integrated into Glisser, you are able to add the panelist view for the audience view. Follow to below steps to have a panelist view:

  •  Make sure that all panelists have their cameras active on Zoom.
  • Click on the three dots on one of the panelist’s videos, and select Spotlight for Everyone. This will spotlight that panelist and it will become the main view of the call, the rest of the panelist will remain at the top of the screen on a smaller window.
  • Click on the next panelist drop-down, and a new setting will come up called Add Spotlight, add the spotlight to your second panelist. Continue with the same procedure with the rest of the panelist and make the session live on Glisser once you are ready.
