We used two laptops for video, displays, and Slido, and linked these to our Webex Room gadget within the Bangalore workplace. As a way to share this expertise, we adopted 3 easy steps.

First, we joined the Webex Occasion from the Webex Room System. Then, we previewed the content material we needed to share, whether or not it was a presentation, stay stream, recording or Slido ballot. We used the ‘Share in Name’ possibility from our room gadget and selected both HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 to swap between the inputs of our two laptops.
