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 two ways, one to allow you to talkback to individual contributors and the other to all participants within the Conference room. To talkback to an individual contributor, click the COG.png icon next to a device or guest.

A preview of the selected contributor will appear. To select the device you wish to use as a Talkback microphone, select it from the available devices in the Intercom drop down menu.

Next, to talkback, select the unmunte.PNG icon to unmute yourself. Once you have finished talking to your guest, click mute.PNG to mute talkback again.

This method allows you to communicate with one guest at a time, to communicate with an entire room you will need to activate talkback in another way. 

The second way to use Talkback to all participants within a Conference room is by using the Preview Window.

To open the Preview Window click the preview.PNG icon next to the Conference Room name.
