Live streaming and video conferencing in Microsoft Teams with Prezi Video

Video calls, remote meetings and online learning just got more interesting! Prezi Video allows you to have both you and your content on the same screen, making it easier to communicate ideas. You can easily connect the Prezi Video desktop app with the Microsoft Teams app and share stunning visuals in a video call with your co-workers.


Preparing for live streaming with Microsoft Teams and the Prezi Video desktop app

1. Start the Prezi Video desktop app.

2. In the Prezi Video desktop app, there are multiple different ways to present your content. You can either:

To access the content (template + text and visuals added) of your previously recorded videos online, open your Prezi Video online dashboard. Click the dropdown in a thumbnail preview and select Video conferencing. This will open the video directly in the Prezi Video desktop app.

If you previously saved a draft project in the desktop app before recording your video, you can open it by clicking File >Open in the top toolbar.


Presenting your content in a meeting

1. You can now start or join your Microsoft Teams meeting. In the Microsoft Teams desktop app, start your meeting. Before connecting, enable your camera and open Device settings. Under Camera, select "Prezi Camera" from the dropdown list.


You should know: Some video apps might automatically mirror your camera. Don’t worry, this is due to a default setting and it means that your audience sees your content the right way.

Once you select “Prezi Camera” you’ll see the camera in Microsoft Teams update to show the same view as in Prezi Video. This means you’re connected and you can start presenting by navigating through your content using the arrow controls.

Pro Tip: In case of 3+ users in the call, Microsoft Teams cuts off the camera view to fit the screen. When presenting with Prezi Video, ask the other participants to click the three dots next to your name and select Fit to frame so they can see your camera view in its original resolution, with all the Prezi Video content included.

2. Return to the Prezi Video app to navigate through your content while presenting. Before presenting, you can also hide the main panel of the application here:


This way, you don’t need to have both Prezi Video and Microsoft Teams open next to each other. You’ll still see the upcoming slides and the navigation arrows in the side panel. Your presenter notes will appear along the top, if you have any.

3. To navigate through your content, select the left and right arrows on your keyboard, in the side panel or click directly on anything you want to zoom to.

Depending on what you want your audience to focus on, use the toggle to either show or hide your content. When you’re showing your content, you can either make it appear right next to you or show it in full screen.


Pro Tip: If you added a video in Prezi Video and you'd like to play it with sound while video conferencing, please remove your earphones and let your computer microphone capture the sound coming out of the speakers. You also have to go to Device settings and change "Noise suppression" to low. If you don't change the noise suppression value, you won't be able to hear any other sound besides the speaker's voice.

When you are done with presenting your video, just close Prezi Video or go back to the camera settings in Microsoft Teams and switch back to the default webcam to stop streaming from the Prezi Video app.
