  1. Important: Using a room system without a computer will not allow you to interact with the presenter. MBI highly recommends pairing a computer with your room system (link).

  2. Dial 199.48.152.152 from your videoconferencing system

  3. When prompted, enter the nine-digit code you received in your invitation e-mail

Interact with speaker

  1. There are two ways: Interact Live and Q&A

  2. Interact Live allows you to participate live via streaming video. To request to interact live, click on the Request to Interact Live button (shaped like a hand) and then click Send Request.

  3. You will see a notification that your request is pending.

  4. Once your request has been accepted, you’ll have the choice to continue. You may also withdraw your request.

  5. Your connection will then transition to Presenter mode. This involves a momentary disconnection from the video stream.

  6. Before you speak, you will need to ensure that your audio and video are enabled. You can do that by clicking on the microphone and video buttons.

  7. When you are done interacting, the moderator will return you to Attendee mode. This will again cause a brief disruption in the video stream.

  8. Q&A allows you to type a question; it will then be asked by the moderator at an appropriate time.

    To submit a question, click on the Q&A button in the sidebar. A text box will appear; type your question and click Post Question.
