Talkback to guests

Talkback allows you to communicate with your contributors via a microphone input of your choice. This is useful for checking your guests are ready to go live, making them aware of any last minute changes or instructing them on being in the correct position within the frame. 

Talkback to contributors can be achieved in multiple ways. 

Firstly though, you'll want to make sure your talkback microphone and headphones are configured. To do so, select Settings & Preferences from the main menu.   


Within the Audio tab, select the Microphone and Speakers you wish to use for Talkback from your available devices. Then click Save


To talkback to an individual contributor before they have been placed in a call, click the COG.png or the preview.PNG icon next to a device or guest. 


Within the contributor settings window, press View Preview. (If you have clicked the preview.PNG icon, you will be taken straight to the preview window). 


Underneath the video preview of the guest click Talkback. When highlighted in green, Talkback is active. 


To talkback to an individual guest that is already in a room, you can simply press TALKBACK from the main user interface.

To activate Talkback for an individual guest, click the Talkback button underneath any guest in a room. 


When the button is highlighted in green talkback is active and when it is grey, it is inactive. 


This method allows you to communicate with one guest at a time, to communicate with an entire room you will need to activate talkback by clicking the TALKBACK.png next to the room name. This option is available for the Waiting, Conference and Talkshow rooms.
