Brazen Group Video booths allow multiple event participants to connect within one audio/video session! Group Video booths are indicated with an icon at the top right of booth cards in the event Lobby:
Booths are sorted by type via the convenient tabs at the top of the Lobby, including Your Booths for booths of all types that the user has been assigned to, and Group Video to browse all Group Video booths in the event.
The Group Video booth indicator is also displayed next to Group Video booth titles in Search Booths.
Starting a Group Video Session
When the Group Video booth Host enters the booth and clicks Chat, the session is enabled and the Host automatically joins the current session along with any attendees that have been waiting in the chat queue. Attendees who have joined the chat queue are able to enter the session on a first come, first served basis as other participants leave the chat.
If a participant needs to step away from the event or take a break, they can toggle their Chat Availability off and their spot in the Group Video queue will be saved for them when they return.
The Group Video tiles display in a grid within the session, with the Host's video at the top left of the screen for all users. Group Video chats include a glowing orange indicator at the top right of the speaker's stream tile to signal which user is speaking.
While chatting in a Group Video booth, both Host's and participants have controls at the bottom of their screen to toggle audio and video on and off, as well as a button to leave the booth. When your video is off and/or your audio is muted, the controls turn red and display a slash through the respective icon. When you enter the booth, your camera and microphone are disabled by default. When your video is disabled, Brazen displays your profile picture instead.
In addition to the audio and video controls, Hosts also have the ability to End or Lock the session. If a Host ends an active Group Video session, participants can remain in the Group Video chat queue and view the booth content, but they will not be able to join a session until the Host returns.
Hosts can control the flow of entry for new participants by locking and unlocking the session. When a session is locked, new participants will not be able to join the session even if the maximum amount of participants has not been reached. All sessions are locked by default when they are enabled by the Host. This allows time for the Host to prepare their camera and microphone or make any final adjustments before opening the session to participants.
Audio and Video Settings
In order to participate in a Group Video chat, your browser must allow Brazen permission to use the camera and microphone. If your settings are not properly configured, you'll receive a pop-up notifier.
Visit Brazen's Audio & Video Troubleshooting page if you need assistance enabling audio and video for Group Video chats.
Muting and Removing Participants
Hosts have a menu at the top right of each participant's video stream that give them the option to mute or remove them if needed.
Muting a participant can be helpful if their microphone is picking up unwanted or distracting noise. Hosts, however, do not have the ability to unmute a participant.
Hosts can also use Remove to remove a disruptive participant. Removed participants can get back in line to join the Group Video session and will be allowed re-entry as long as the session has not been locked.
When they are removed, the participant is returned to the Lobby and a message displays.
When chatting in Group Video booths as the Host or a participant, you can simultaneously engage in one-on-one text chats in other booths. If you have a Scheduled Chat, you'll still be able to accept it without leaving the Group Video chat. Scheduled Chats will be limited to text only while you're in a Group Video chat. You can easily toggle between chats in the Chat modal at the left of your screen.
Ending a Group Video Session
Hosts can end the Group Video session for all users by selecting End within the video controls, and are prompted to confirm their choice.
When a Host ends the session, all participants are removed from the Group Video session and returned to the Lobby.
