Advanced Meeting Options Details:
  • Encrypt Meeting: Encrypts the video connection for increased security. Note: This may not be successful with room-based endpoints.
  • Crop Video: Cuts the video display to a wider aspect ratio.
  • Moderator-less Meeting: Allows use of the meeting time without the room owner being connected. Attendees connected via telephone will not have to wait until the moderator has joined the meeting.
  • Enable Auto-Recording: Starts recording the meeting automatically as soon as it begins.
  • Disable Chat Messaging: Turns off the ability to chat via text
  • Mute Participants on Entry: Prevents attendees joining late from disrupting a meeting that has already started. Attendees joining a meeting with this setting enabled are notified that they are muted upon joining.
  • Silent Participant Entry Mode: Turns off visual and audio notifications when attendees enter and exit the meeting.
