Discussion Manager App Settings


The Discussion Manager is an app that the chair uses to manage discussion during a meeting, operate the Public Timer, and vote. The Discussion Manager App can run on any device (Apple & Android Phones or any size Tablets, as well as any Windows devices or PCs). 

RTS (Request to Speak) Setup options allow you to customize the display of members’ names and whether or not to identify them in the RTS queue on the Public Display.  Additionally, Pro AV users have options for identifying which device or microphone each member is using and whether or not their microphone should be activated automatically at the beginning of discussion sequences. Layout options allow you to place member icons or photos on the chair’s screen to correspond to where they sit in the meeting room – from the chair’s perspective. Connection options allow you to customize the communication or “handshake” between the Discussion Manager and your DSP (digital system processor). Test options allow you to activate and deactivate microphones one at a time in order to test your communication connections.   

NOTE: Swagit options are specific controls used for interaction with Swagit video encoder devices ONLY.
