We are happy to announce the following features and enhancements in 3.2. Please go to http://biba.com/downloads to get your update.
1. Event Mode 2.0
- Now have the ability to add restrictions for users joining an All Hands / large call!
- With Event Mode 2.0, Biba will automatically disable attendees from having the ability to share their webcam (but will still have ability to view your webcam) and share their screen. This will allow Biba organizers to have more control when using Event Mode.
- The Organizer (host) of the call can choose to promote an attendee to become “presenter” so they can enable webcam and screen share. This is a great way to collaborate effectively in larger meetings. (More Menu > Add Presenters and choose from invited attendees)
- Presenters will have a new icon associated with their name on the Roster
- NOTE: Presenters and Attendees need to be on the 3.2 clients for Event Mode 2.0 Functionality
2. Chrome Extension for Google Calendar
- Schedule meetings directly from Google Chrome
- Users will have similar functionality as seen on the Outlook plug-in - ability to schedule meeting quickly directly from from Google Chrome. This will allow users to schedule meetings without ever needing to move away from their browser!
3. Multi-Monitor Screen Share
- Ability for users to share multiple monitors during screen share
- Users will now have the ability to share multiple screens while on a Biba screen share. This becomes very helpful for the users who have 2+ screens in their workspace. Biba will allow you to use your monitor space more effectively during the screen share sessions whether internally or externally with customers.
- User can also choose what screen to share if multiple screens are connected
4. Additional H.323 Compatibility
- With Cisco, Tandberg, Polycom, and Lifesize conference room video systems already compatible with Biba, Biba is now adding adding H.323 support for Vidyo Conference Room Systems.
- Users will now have the ability to use their Vidyo conference room hardware to connect directly with Biba and place calls quickly!
If you would like schedule any trainings for your team regarding the Biba 3.2 release, please let us know and we will be happy to set up time on the calendar.
