With multistreaming, you'll see the video of the most active participants in your meetings, whether people join from Webex Meeting or Webex App or from Webex desk, room, or board devices or other Webex video devices. Our improved algorithms compensate for network problems that can affect video quality in your meetings. These features work on meetings in the cloud and for Webex-registered devices in meetings that use Webex Video Mesh.
Multistreaming is available to all Webex sites, except for FedRAMP-authorized Webex sites.
Active Participants Display from Any App or Device
It doesn’t matter how people join the meeting—whether it’s from the Webex Meetings app or the Webex App or from a Webex desk, room, or board device or from another Webex video device, you’ll now see more of the most active participants on screen at a time. You’re limited to 6 sources between Webex Video Mesh Nodes. So, if you’ve joined from the Webex Meetings, you’ll see the video of up to six participants who’ve joined from the Webex App or devices. In the other direction, if you've used Webex App, Webex-registered devices, or SIP devices to join a meeting through a Video Mesh node (or any means other than the Webex Meetings app), you'll also see the video of up to 6 participants who've joined from the Webex Meetings app.
Simultaneous Display of Shared Content and Thumbnails of Active Participants
Minimally transcoded conference (MTC) technology sends video as a multistream, allowing the Webex App and devices to display multiple video screens at the same time as any shared content. As a result, you’ll be able to see thumbnails of the most active participants even when someone is sharing their screen or application in the meeting.
Improved Handling of Video and Audio
Media Assure is a set of algorithms that work in the background on all audio and video streams to detect poor network conditions such as packet loss, latency and jitter and then compensate for those so as to provide the best possible quality in all conditions. Media Assure works on all Webex Meetings, Personal Room meetings, and team meetings with participants who have joined from the Webex Meetings app and the Webex App and from Webex desk, room, or board devices.
Support for Webex Video Mesh
If you host meetings using Webex Video Mesh, you can take advantage of these features too. Webex Video Mesh supports multiple video streams for cloud-registered devices. Multistream provides better bandwidth utilization on average, particularly for the cascade link between the local Webex Video Mesh Nodes and the Webex cloud.
