Use Solstice with Your Video Conference

The sections below outline information and instructions for meeting hosts to use the Mersive Solstice app and Solstice Conference drivers to connect their video conference to Solstice content sharing and room peripherals, such as cameras and mics, plugged into the Solstice Pod.

Scheduled Conferences vs Unscheduled Conferences

Scheduled video conferences appear in advance on a Microsoft 365 calendar integrated in the Mersive Solstice app. The details for the conference—meeting ID, passcode, URL, etc.—must be included in the body of the scheduled event. Integrating a personal Microsoft 365 calendar, along with Solstice Pod configuration, enables faster starts for Solstice video conferences.

The Mersive Solstice app can also connect Solstice content sharing and room peripherals plugged in to the Solstice Pod to video conferences not previously scheduled on an integrated calendar. In this scenario, the video conference needs to be started separately using the host's preferred conferencing service.

See Start a Solstice Video Conference for more details.

Using Solstice Video Conferencing with Dual Displays

If the Solstice Pod is connected to dual display monitors, the screen connected to HDMI 1 of the Pod is available to be shared to the video conference. The screen connected to HDMI 2 is visible to participants in the room but is not shared as part of the conference. In the Mersive Solstice app Layout panel, the display shared with the conference is the screen on the left.

Install Mersive Solstice App and Solstice Conference Drivers

MacOS users who wish to share a view of their whole desktop to Solstice, including audio, may need to allow the Mersive Solstice app to share their desktop and desktop audio. Expand the sections below to find steps for doing so on versions of macOS.
