Assigning Camera Backgrounds

Your Camera Backgrounds will now appear on the page.  You can select who will see them in the session by clicking the boxes under 'Attendee' and/or 'Host'.

If the box under Host is set, only the Host will be able to use the background.  If the box under Attendee is set, the Attendee will be able to use the background.  If both are set, all users in the session will be able to use the background. If you enable multiple backgrounds, users will be able to choose from any backgrounds enabled for their role

You are also able to select one Default Background. This will cause this Background to automatically be selected when users join a session. When you select a default background, the background is set as the default for both Attendees and Hosts. If there are multiple backgrounds available for a user's role, they will be able to change to any of the enabled backgrounds after joining the session.

You are also able to enable/disable the Clear and Blur Background options. The Clear background option will allow users to remove any applied backgrounds from their webcam. The Blur option will allow the user to blur their current environment instead of using a background image. If you disable both of these options, users will be required to use one of the enabled background images.
