Appoint As Moderator

In role-based conferences, any participant can be added as a speaker to “take the podium” by moderator or conference owner. A participant can also become a speaker by sending a corresponding request to the moderator via special button.

Reactions and polling

During a TrueConf video conference, you can ask participants to vote for an idea and quickly gather their feedback using a set of reaction icons. Participants do not need to provide detailed explanations to you – instead, they can just click on the corresponding emoji to show their attitude. The application counts user votes and shares the results with your team.

Similarly, a video conferencing participant can request to take the podium or step away by sending a corresponding reaction.

Control participant’s PTZ cameras or cameras of your conference room systems right from your client application. If necessary, you can zoom in an out your participant’s video or change the viewing angle to track what you need.

During a video conference, you can also mute any participant’s microphone if he or she makes extra noise or interferes in the communication process.

Thanks to the picture-in-picture mode you can not only broadcast your video and content, but also mix them. All meeting participants are guaranteed to see both the slides and the speaker’s video, regardless of the device they are using to join the meeting. Read more about how this works for SIP endpoints.
