Guests

Guests can be added as a source within the switcher. Each guest will appear in one of the source boxes when connected. The talent can then be put in preview and program, or being used in a composition layout.

Change the guest stream quality

On the scene panel of the guest you have different options to change the stream quality and to check the guests connection status.

The options:

  • Region: Streaming region, should be as close to the actual location of the guest
  • Video quality

Once a guest is connected to the production, a unique audio stream of the guest will be added to:

  • The audio panel
  • All scenes in the audio segment

The audio options are on
