What is Spotlight? 

Spotlight gives hosts the ability to stop split screen and focus on one camera view while you have a co-host. This feature gives hosts the flexibility of toggling between focusing on their co-host, themselves and having a split screen throughout the live event.

How to Use Spotlight

1.   During a live event, click on the grey telescope icon in the bottom left of the livestream.

2.   Each participant will have their own telescope icon – simply click on telescope associated with the participant you want to focus on. 

3.   Note that the host's screen will continue to show all co-hosts, but to indicate that spotlight is active a border will surround the host that is spotlighted. At this point, viewers will only be able see the spotlighted host.
