OmniPresent – Frequently Asked Questions

Can multiple presenters talk at the same time?

Yes. OmniPresent Web Conference offers a multi-presenter interface in which more than one presenter can talk, show presentation slides and use other features simultaneously. This means that presenters do not need to wait their turn and can interact as if they were physically in the same room.

High quality and full-duplex audio can be used by as many people as you wish with no limitations other than bandwidth.

Can you have two OmniPresent rooms open at the same time on the same computer?

Yes. OmniPresent rooms are independent and you can have multiple rooms open.

Can you speak in both rooms at the same time?

Yes. The only activity that cannot be done simultaneously is sharing desktop.

Is there any software to install such as Java or ActiveX?

OmniPresent Web Conference and StageToWeb use the common Flash Player to deliver their contents. Flash Players are already present on over 99% of computers (PC, Mac) worldwide. As such, your attendees do not need to install any software, Java Applets, or ActiveX. This makes access to the room a breeze and reduces your support costs as many users might not have the rights to install any software on their computers. One more advantage of not having any software to install is the fact that there is no upgrade to go through either as all our enhancements happen on the server and do not require any software update. Accessing an OmniPresent room is as simple as accessing a web site.

Presenters who need to show live applications from their desktop (application and desktop sharing) will be asked to install a small Projector.

What if a computer does not have Flash Player? In that rare case, the OmniPresent Web Conference login page detects it and offers an easy install of the Flash Player.

Can you hide the list of attendees?

Yes. You have full control over what attendees can see and do in the conference room. You can also choose to hide their last name.

Do you offer an app for the iPhone, iPad or Android?

Yes, we do have an app for IOS and Android.

Where do my recordings save?

Recast Recordings are saved on our end and can be played back inside the webinar room, on demand or in event mode.

Can I have a copy of my recording to keep?

Yes, we can convert our Recast Recording to an MP4 file for you to save on your end.

Can I create events and see who registered for the event?

Yes, our comprehensive Event Registration system accompanies your OmniPresent account. You may choose to set up formal events through the Event Manager. After participants register, automated messages and reminders are sent via email or Text Messaging. All of the registrants’ information is available in event reports. A Microsoft Outlook plug-in is also available.

Does your desktop sharing support multiple monitors?

Yes. You may project any region or any application from any monitor or even an application or region that spans two monitors. You may also project the entire monitor.

With the slides module, what fonts work without font substitution?

Some font substitutions may occur, especially if your slide presentation uses non-standard fonts not included by default in Windows. Here is a list of fonts that will work without substitution.
