Cisco Telepresence Layouts

Question

Which layout is best suited for my event in a Cisco Telepresence room?

Answer

Layouts in Cisco Telepresence allow you to control how the cameras in the room operate in order to always send the correct video to the remote location. If your room only has one camera, you will not need to change your layout. For rooms with more than one camera, you will have access to the following layouts:

  • Local Presenter
  • Remote Presenter
  • Discussion

Local Presenter

This option is recommended for situations where someone at BGSU is teaching a course or running a meeting.

The local presenter option keeps the video of the front of the room on the screen. If someone in the audience or back of the room speaks, a second camera will turn on and the remote location video will be a split screen of the front of the room and the second speaker. Once the second speaker finishes, the video will go back to a full-screen image of just the front of the room.

Remote Presenter

This option is recommended when someone at the remote location is teaching a course or running a meeting.

A wide angle shot of the entire audience or room will be displayed by default to the remote location. If someone in the room speaks, a second camera will zoom in on that individual and the video being sent to the remote location will split between the entire room and the individual speaker. Once the local speaker finishes, the video will go back to the entire room/audience.

Discussion

This is an advanced option best suited for situations when the entire room should be displayed at all times.

Both a wide angle shot of the entire classroom and the video of the front of the room will be displayed on a split screen at all times. 

To change between the different layouts during a meeting:

  1. Tap on the "Layout" option in the top middle of the touch panel.
  2. Tap on the layout option you wish to switch to.
