Pin presenter webcams on the video bridge

By default, voice-activated camera switching is turned on and controls who is on stage.

If you'd like to choose which presenter webcams are on stage, turn off voice-activated camera switching and pin presenters to the video bridge. In Filmstrip layouts, you can also select the presenters to highlight above the filmstrip. To learn more, see About presenter webcam layouts.

Note: Only moderators can pin presenter webcams. To allow a presenter to pin webcams, promote them to the Presenter role.
