Other Recommendations

  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers or the room where the conference is being broadcast is equipped with speakers  so you can hear the presenters.
