Starting a video conference Express HD¶
You can start a Video Conference Express HD using the Mybys application. All you have to do is click on the icon at the bottom of your computer screen, scroll down and click on “video”.
You can also start a Video Express HD session directly online by going to video.facilisglobal.com. Once you are on the home page, you will notice that the Simplified Mode is already checked per default because it takes less bandwidth than the regular mode.
When that box is unchecked, you are using the regular mode which gives you the possibility to select different layouts.
On the login page, after entering your credentials, you will also have to authorize the use of your camera and microphone. You can authorize one or both.
Once you are in video, you will notice at the bottom of the screen the control menu bar. These icons allow you to:
Activate/deactivate your camera
Activate/deactivate your microphone (mute yourself)
Activate/deactivate your volume
Select another camera or microphone
End the video conference
You can invite up to 10 participants at the same time (per default setting). There are different layouts, using either the simplified mode or the regular mode.
