Presenter Experience: Overlays
Updated over a week ago

With the new Presenter Experience, you can add Overlay images (e.g., Presenter Name, Department, Title), a.k.a. lower third, to the Media Player and have them shown on the screen. Each presenter can be labeled with an overlay image that can be uploaded to the platform and placed over their webcams.

Overlay images can be used with Scenes (Backgrounds) and Layouts for a new experience.

How to Upload Overlay Images

Once your overlay images are ready, you can upload them to your webinar by:

  1. Selecting the webinar where you want to display your overlay image, then enter the Interface Builder.

  2. Within the Interface Builder, go to the Media Player component settings by clicking on the Gear icon at the component's header. Then select Configure.

  3. Under the Overlays section, click the Manage button, and the Manage Overlays window will appear.

    You will see the Upload section to the left and three tabs to the right: In Use, Library, and Public Library.

  4. Upload your overlay images by clicking on the Browse button.
    Supported Overlay Image Size and Format:

    • Supported resolution: 1920x1080

    • Supported format: .png

Managing the Overlays


To review the overlay's look in the Media Player, click on the specific image within the In Use folder.

The Customize tab will appear, and the system will show a preview of the image and its size so you can select the correct image with no problems.

Overlay Positions

To configure the overlay position on the screen, click on the dropdown menu under the Position section.

By default, the overlay is positioned at the bottom, but three position choices are available: top, Middle, or Bottom. After selecting a position option, click Save.

IMPORTANT: Each image is configured separately.

Saving to the Library

All the images you upload will be located in the In Use folder. This means the overlay images can only be used in this specific webinar, but you can save them for future use in another webinar. To do this:


  1. Click on the image within the In Use tab you want to store in your library.

  2. Click the Save to Library hyperlink, and the system will save the overlay image in your library.

  3. Review the image by going to the Library tab.

Manage Existing Overlays

To use one or more of the options from the Library, select the one you prefer by clicking the plus (+) sign. You will notice that the ones selected will change to a checkmark, and the legend will change from Use to In Use.

If you want to delete the images, click the Trash icon.

How to Use the Overlays

Once the images are configured, we can use them in the Presenter Console to upgrade the experience.

  1. Log in and connect with your Camera and Audio.

    NOTE: The overlay image will not apply when
    you are connected via Audio only.

  2. Click the View Presenters in the stream control section.

    The presenter list will pop out. Click on the Manage Experience option below.

  3. The Manage Experience window will appear. Click on the Layer icon to access the Overlay configuration.

    From here, you can assign overlay Images to the presenters by clicking on a presenter and selecting the corresponding overlay image to display.

  4. Once the overlay images are assigned, click the Apply button. A green Applied Successfully notification will appear, indicating that the overlay assignment is done.

The Overlay feature is dynamic and can be used multiple times during your session. This allows you to provide a TV News production experience and so much more!
