Present, Pop-out, and Gallery View

Present, Pop-Out, and Gallery View are the core features in Kumospace for collaboration and presentations.

Present

The Present feature allows you to share your screen with the people nearby, i.e. in your audio range – either your audio circle or a Room, depending on where you are in the space.

Multiple participants can present simultaneously without interrupting each other.

  2. Select your preferred Source from the following options:

    • Your screen: Share your Entire screen, a Window, or Chrome tab.

    • Secondary Camera*: Share your secondary camera using OBS.

    • Stream a Local File*: Share a music or video file from your computer.

  3. Click Start.

Presenting Your Screen

When choosing to share your Screen, you'll be prompted select an appropriate tab depending on what you want to share:

  • Entire screen – this is a good option if you need to switch between different windows and tabs.

  • Window – select this tab if you're sharing one of your open windows, e.g. a PowerPoint presentation. Note that if your window is minimized, it will not appear as available. 

  • Chrome tab – select this tab if you'd like to present a Chrome tab with sound.

Click Share to begin your presentation. 

The Pop-Out feature will start automatically while you're using Present to allow you to see the faces of your audience. Read more about it below.

Share Audio when Presenting

When Sharing audio when presenting, we recommend using a Windows devices. This will allow you to share your audio when presenting your entire screen, a select window or browser tab, a secondary camera, or local file.

At this time, Mac devices can only support sharing audio when presenting a Chrome tab.

Share Chrome Tab Audio:

When screen sharing your Chrome tab, you'll also share the audio of that tab. If you prefer not to share the audio, untick the Share tab audio box in the bottom left corner of the window.

Broadcast Your Presentation 📢

By default, the Present feature shares your screen with the people nearby, in other words, in your audio range – either your audio circle or a Room, depending on where you are in the space.

If you'd like to screen share your presentation to the Entire Floor or All Floors in your Kumospace, you can do so by clicking the Broadcast button while presenting, and selecting your desired Broadcast Range.

This will share your presentation everywhere on the Floor, including Rooms.

Pop-Out

The Pop-Out feature opens up a floating window that displays the faces of the people near you, i.e. in your audio range – either your audio circle or a Room, depending on where you are in the Space.

It's intended to help people while they're collaborating off the Kumospace tab. 

Popout

You can turn Pop-Out on and off by clicking the Pop-Out button in the bottom bar. 

Pop-Out will start automatically for the person using Present allowing them to see the faces of their audience while they're screen sharing. 

You can drag the Pop-Out window around and place it anywhere on your screen. Additionally, you can resize the window by dragging the corners out or in. 

Click the Back to tab button on the Pop-Out window, and you'll jump back to the Kumospace tab, without having to look for it in your browser.
