Role-based conference or virtual meeting is a video conferencing mode in which only particular participants can be seen and heard by others.

Role-based conference participants are divided into 3 types:

  • Moderators who organize and control video meeting.
  • Speakers who can seen and heard by all participants.
  • Attendees who are not seen by other conference participants.

The maximum number of speakers in a role-based conference is 36 out of 800 possible participants with TrueConf Server, and 4 out of 120 with TrueConf Online.
