    Moderator Mode

    Moderator Mode allows the moderator to take control of the devices connected to the ViewBoard. To enter Moderator Mode, select the Moderator Mode icon (VCast Pro MM Icon.svg) located in the lower-right corner of the screen.

    vCast Moderator Mode

    When enabled, the moderator can view a list of all connected screens in the left floating window and can preview each participant’s screen and then select any of participant’s screen and cast to the ViewBoard’s main screen for presentation. The moderator can also control each participant’s screen, annotate on the ViewBoard, and remove unwanted participants by selecting the close icon (X).

    vCast Moderator Mode

    Broadcast

    When enabled, the ViewBoard’s screen will be broadcasted to all of the participant’s connected screens simultaneously. The participants can only view the presentation contents until the moderator disables the Broadcast function.

    vCast Broadcast

    Multiple Screen Sharing

    By default, vCast is set to allow multiple screen sharing, but can also be set to single screen sharing. To do this, the moderator can select the Multiple Screen Sharing icon to switch to single screen sharing.

    Preview Screen

    By default, vCast is set to let the moderator preview the participant’s screen contents prior to sharing to the ViewBoard. Selecting the Preview Screen icon, the Moderator can switch to see the participant’s name only.

    Touch

    By default, participants can use touch for collaboration after connecting. The moderator can enable/disable the touch function of a participant by selecting the Touch icon in their window.

    NOTE:

    • Moderator Mode is supported on all vCastSender and AirPlay devices, but mobile devices are limited to a "preview" function. Additionally, mobile Android devices cannot cast sound out.
    • When you cast your Windows/Mac/Chrome screen to a ViewBoard, the selected full screen unit will not be broadcasted back to your device to avoid repetitive screen casting.
    • The active presenter can touch each of the participant's screens to remotely control casting devices.
    • The number of multi-screen presenters on-screen depends on your Windows CPU processor performance and router specifications.
