Front Row: PRO LICENCE
With so many people working from home this past year, we shared a more balanced meeting experience, where nearly all participants were joining remotely and on equal footing. As your organisation plans for the hybrid work world, you have an opportunity to extend this equitable meeting experience across workspaces, ensuring everyone can collaborate without compromise. To give people in the room a greater sense of connection to remote participants and support collaboration before, during, and after meetings, Microsoft are introducing a new content layout called front row. Visually, this new layout moves the video gallery to the bottom of the screen so in-room participants can see remote colleagues face to face across a horizontal plane – similar to if they were in the same room. Meeting content is surrounded by contextual fluid components like the agenda, tasks, and notes, which can be updated in real-time, helping you stay engaged and productive. Additionally, the meeting chat is brought clearly into view so when in a room you can easily see and engage in the conversation in real-time. This layout will be supported across both single and dual display configurations.

Participate on equal footing, no matter where you are – The new Hybrid Working Experience. Microsoft is also tweaking how it manages video calls in Teams. New video layouts for Teams Rooms will utilise the larger screen real estate of screens found in meeting rooms to highlight remote participants more clearly whether single or dual screens. New intelligent AI cameras will frame multiple individuals in a meeting room and send these images separately in the call giving all participants an equal footing.
