A Briefing Room is equipped with three screens and two cameras, as shown in the following example setup.

The Briefing Room is tailored around three room modes: Local Presenter, Remote Presenter, and Discussion mode. It is easy to change the mode on-the-fly, so that it suits the type of training you are delivering.

  • Local Presenter (the presenter is in the room).

  • Remote Presenter (the presenter is calling in).

  • Discussion (for discussions between different sites with a local presenter in the room).

Change room mode during a conference

Your administrator may or may not have set up the room to switch between the Local Presenter and Remote Presenter modes automatically. If the automatic switching is not enabled, use the Touch controller to change between room modes.

Automatic switching implies:

  • Local Presenter mode is used when a presenter is detected on the local stage.

  • Remote Presenter mode is used when no presenter is detected on the local stage.

To use the Discussion mode, you always have to choose it manually with the Touch controller.

Switch between the different room modes using the Touch controller


Tap the Briefing Room button on the Touch controller.


You'll get a menu where you can tap the mode that you want to change to: Local Presenter, Remote Presenter, or Discussion. The current mode is highlighted.
