Note: 

Switching camera from front to rear - After you join a zoom, you will see a button called Switch Camera. Press is if you want zoom to use the camera in the front of the room rather than the back or vice versa. This is the only place you can do that.

Camera

Click CAMERA if the talk is going to be in-person and entirely done on the whiteboards. 


Lecture Recording and Live Streaming


The lecture hall is equipped with the Panopto system for lecture recording and live streaming. Lecture capture and live streaming require support from the IT staff to operate. By default, ICERM records and streams all lectures during scheduled workshops. Lectures scheduled outside a workshop may sometimes be recorded and streamed with an advanced request by program organizers. See our Recording and Live Streaming Policy for more details.

Microphones

The lecture hall is equipped with six wireless microphone channels, labeled WX1 through WX6. Six lavalier and six handheld microphones are located in the podium drawer, also labeled WX1 through WX6. Any combination of six microphones can be used during a presentation as long as only one microphone per channel is used.

*** Meaning only 6 mics can be used at any given time.

The room is also equipped with a ceiling-mounted microphone which will capture the sound of members of the audience. The ceiling mic is quite good and can be sufficient for teleconference events that are not being recorded or live-streamed. 

To change the volume of the mics: 

Click MIC on the right side, this will show you the common mics we use. Click SHOW ALL MICS to see more.

*** Best Practice before a lecture/talk is to MUTE ALL MICS then unmute the ones you want to use.
