There are several different view layouts that can be selected while in Speaker View. These view options are displayed as tabs along the top of Speaker View and clicking on a tab will immediately switch to that view. These 4 view options will always include the Speaker chat box along the bottom of the screen.

In addition to these, you can also switch to an expanded view by clicking "Expand" in the Speaker controls.


Stage view is the default view that is loaded upon joining a Studio session as a Speaker. This view brings up the live program feed enlarged near the middle of the screen and shows your Video in a smaller box off to the left. This view allows you to see what is happening On Stage and is great for when you aren't currently On Stage and just want to sit back and watch


The second view option, Gallery, allows you to see all of the other Speakers with their videos started. To the left, you can see the program output along with your own Video. This is a good view layout to choose when interviewing others or hosting a panel discussion On Stage.

Screen 1 & Screen 2

Another view layout that you can choose is to bring the current screen shares up as an enlarged box with the live program and your camera off to the left. If the screen share is the current topic of conversation, using this view might be optimal.

Up to 2 Screen Shares can be active at once, so the Screen 1 & Screen 2 views allow you to choose which one you want to display. This view is meant for when you need to share your screen.

Expanded View

The final view layout that is available in the Speaker view is the expanded layout. This takes your current view layout and expands it, filling your browser tab and displaying your own Video at the top left, which you can reposition.

Going into expanded mode also provides a couple of new options in the Speaker controls (along the bottom), clicking "Expand" will take your selected view into fullscreen mode.

To leave the expanded view, simply click the "Minimize" button.
