Create a Meeting Camera Static Object

Place Meeting Cameras in shared spaces to facilitate team video chats. For group calls, one member should activate the Meeting Camera, and the rest of the Members can link to it. In this example, this Meeting Camera Object has been set up for Members.

 

Access your Static Objects Manager

Access the Static Object Manager in the Space Settings Menu:  Space Settings > Setting > Static Object in the Main (Hamburger) Menu.

Set the Location

Finalize the placement of the Meeting Camera Static Object. By default, it will be placed in the workspace near the current location of your Avatar. In the Preview window, you may drag and drop where desired. 

Alternately, you may set the location based on a specific location in the space's grid. This is helpful if aligning with other Static Objects in the space. Adjust the numbers in the X and Y axis fields to reposition where needed.

Set the Range of the Meeting Camera Static Object

Choose how far the reach of the Object extends by setting the range. Any workspace user's Avatar that comes within the set range will experience the Object's Sub-Canvas Window opening and will be shown the content.

Within the Object's Sub-Canvas, click on the numerical drop-down to adjust the range (indicated by the Object's surrounding gray circle).
