October 18, 2021 – Intermedia AnyMeeting Update

Intermedia AnyMeeting Security
End-to-end encryption: this feature offers hosts an extra layer of security during highly sensitive meetings.  While all meetings are securely encrypted, End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) allows the host to ensure that ONLY those that enter the secret key can decrypt the meeting audio and video content.  Please note that there are  features that are disabled as they are supported on our cloud servers: recording, chat, notes, phone audio, virtual backgrounds, and virtual assistant. E2EE can be enabled by host for meetings with not more than 20 participants. The feature is available for Pro and Enterprise level plans.

Intermedia AnyMeeting In-Meeting Experience

This is supported by a new layout option called Alphabetical View, accessible from the Layout dropdown – in this view, users can navigate pages of alphabetically sorted camera-enabled participants.
  • Favorites: Users on all meeting plans can customize their individual meeting layouts with the ability to add fellow meeting participants as Favorites. Doing so will position the Favorited participant's video (if their camera is on) to the forefront of Spotlight and/or Gallery view.

March 4, 2021 - Intermedia AnyMeeting Update

In-Meeting Experience:

  • Minor bug fixes

Webinar:

  • We have updated audio settings management for better privacy and consistency. For privacy, a Webinar Presenter (or Attendee after promotion to Presenter) now joins with their microphone muted. They can unmute themselves easily as soon as they are ready to speak. Webinar Host joins unmuted, the same flow as it was before. If a Host changes their audio device (pairs the phone or switches to web microphone) their muted/unmuted state will not change. Therefore, this flow will become more consistent.
  • Video (MP4) playback has been improved. Now our customers' video experience during a webinar will be even smoother than before. We also added a note to the Content Library with the video files requirements that should ensure best video experience for all webinar participants.

  • Minor bug fixes

Webinar:

Now the host or presenter can check before the event if their videos match the platform requirements.
