Multi-Room Sessions

Solstice’s Multi-Room feature is being discontinued and has been removed from the mobile version of the Solstice app in 5.3. This feature will be removed from the desktop version in an upcoming release.

Solstice Multi-Room allows up to four Pods to connect and share content collaboratively across multiple locations on the same enterprise network. Shared content will appear on all Solstice displays in the session regardless of which room or location shared the content. The Multi-Room feature also allows all participants to view information on how to connect to your existing voice and audio systems, such as a dial-in number for your audio conferencing.

Start a Multi-Room Session

  1. Open the Solstice app and connect to the Solstice display.
  2. Click Meeting, then click Start Multi-Room Session.
  3. In Session Name, enter in the name you would like to give the Multi-Room session. Note: Multi-room session names will be visible in the Solstice app’s discovery list for all users connected to the network.
  4. In the Add an audio bridge field, enter in the audio/video conferencing information you would like to relay to other meeting participants such as a direct phone line, a conference bridge and PIN, or a VTC link. This information will be visible in the Solstice app to meeting participants that have joined the multi-room session (Multi-Room tab/panel). For example, if you want other meeting participants to call in to the meeting, you can enter in the number of the direct phone line in your meeting room.
  5. Click Start Multi-Room Session. The Multi-Room session is started, and the Multi-Room panel opens on your Solstice app.

Connect Another Pod to a Multi-Room Session

  1. Open the Solstice app. On the Discovered Displays tab, the available Multi-Room sessions will be listed.
  2. Click the Multi-Room session you would like to join.
  3. Enter the screen key visible on the display you wish to connect to the Multi-Room session. A prompt asking if you would like to join the multi-room session from your display will appear.
  4. Click Ok. A request is sent to the meeting participants in the Multi-Room session for approval. Once approved, your display will be connected to the multi-room session.

How to Join a Multi-Room Session as a Meeting Participant

  1. Open the Solstice app. On the Discovered Displays tab, the available Multi-Room sessions will be listed.
  2. Click the Multi-Room session you would like to join and enter the screen key visible on a display connected to the Multi-Room session.
  3. Once connected, you will be able to share content to the session that is visible on all the connected displays.

Disconnect a Pod from a Multi-Room Session

In the same way that individual users can be disconnected from a display by a user with appropriate rights to do so, a room can be ‘booted’ from the session by selecting the room name in the on-screen configuration panel and selecting ‘Disconnect’.
