Active Speaker

For 2 or 3 participants.

Uses AI technology to detect the active speaker and displays that participant in a larger screen while placing the other participant(s) in smaller screens. When the active speaker changes, the participant who is on the larger screen automatically switches. When two or three participants are talking back-and-forth, their videos are displayed side-by-side.


Cropped Grid

For 1 to 6 participants.

Arranges the videos in a horizontal, side-by-side orientation and crops them (i.e. removes the left and right spacing) as needed so that the final video has a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Standard Grid

For 1 to 6 participants.

Arranges the videos in a horizontal, side-by-side orientation without cropping them.

Vertical Grid

For 1 to 6 participants.

Arranges the videos in a vertical orientation and crops them (i.e. removes the left and right spacing) as needed so that the final video has a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Face Centering

Can be applied to Active Speaker, Cropped Grid, and Vertical Grid layouts.

Uses facial recognition technology to detect participant’s faces so that they are placed towards the center of their screens.
