Scopia Basics


How can Scopia Desktop connect people?


·  Can be used to bring webcams into conferences/meetings with LNV cameras. (e.g., if you are broadcasting something over the LNV, a person without an LNV can access this same event through Scopia Desktop)

·  Can be used to share content out to LNV cameras and Scopia Desktop webcam participants. (e.g., presentations, documents, etc.)

·  Can be used in meeting with other Scopia Desktop connections and no LNV cameras. (e.g., if you want to meet with a group of people without the LNV, you can do this with Scopia. Any participant in the meeting can request to be a presenter, and then present his/her matierial)
