Present your screen

To present your screen while on a call, tap the Present icon. If Wireless Presentation is enabled, the user will be prompted to choose how they wish to share their screen; wired or wireless. For more information regarding wireless presentation, refer to the dedicated section below. 

You can share your screen whether you are on a video call or giving a presentation to others in the conference room locally.

While on a call, tap the Layouts icon for screen layout options. See Layouts below for more details. 

To end presentation mode, tap the Presenting icon.

Administrators can choose whether to enable or disable the Presentations Start Automatically feature from System Behavior.  This allows for automatic transmission of the presentation when a user plugs in the HDMI cable to their computer. The default system setting has Presentation Start Automatically enabled.

If your video system is already receiving a presentation, you cannot start your own presentation without first stopping the current presentation being sent to all callers. Similarly, if the meeting host or a meeting moderator has enabled the block presentation feature, you may not be able to share your screen.

Wireless Presentation

If enabled, the wireless presentation feature allows users to share their screen without needing to connect the HDMI cable to their computer. The system will provide additional user controls and on-screen messaging to guide users through the connection process using their web browser and network/internet connection.  

More information about the wireless presentation feature’s setup, configuration, and operation is available on the Hardware Installation – Wireless Presentation topic. 


Select from the following layout options during a call:

Presentation input and video from multiple callers appear. This layout is available with integrated bridge calls from Meetings. For bridges that are not integrated, select<or>to choose a layout.
Presentation input appears.
Video from the far end appears.

If the video call does not support presentations simultaneously with video, the video system automatically swaps the primary and presentation inputs to send the presentation. The near end shows both the camera and presentation input and the far end shows only the presentation.
