Share content during a meeting

Learn how to share content during a meeting.

1. Share content using a cable

When you're connected in a video conference room, you can share content from your computer into the meeting. You'll see it on the screen in the room and remote participants will also see it.

  1. Find the connection cable for your screen. This is usually an HDMI or VGA cable, but will depend on the equipment on your room.

  2. Connect the cable to your computer

2. Share content wirelessly in a video conference room

When you're connected to a meeting in a video conference room, you can share content wirelessly. You'll see it on the screen in the room and remote participants will also see it.

To do this you'll need:

  • A Windows or Mac computer. Tablets and smartphones aren't currently supported.

  • An internet connection

Share wirelessly using Skype for Business

  1. Click the Skype meeting link in your invite or copy it into Skype for Business

  2. Start a video call by selecting the Video icon (mute your audio/video if in a VC room)

  3. Select the share content button and choose the desktop or window to share

Share wirelessly using a WebRTC capable browser (e.g. Chrome, Edge, Safari, Firefox)

  1. Open the 'Join a Meeting' link at the top of the page and select the 1st option

  2. Enter the meeting ID and select 'Join as Guest'

  3. Enter your name

  4. Select Management and Presentation and then Join Meeting

3. Share content using a browser or video client

When you're connected to a meeting, you can share content on your screen with others in the meeting. Sharing content works with:

  • Cisco Jabber or Skype for Business. This also allows content and the meeting video to be display on separate screens.

  • JabberGuest plugin

  • WebRTC Firefox browser client.

  • WebRTC Chrome browser client. This requires the Chrome desktop sharing extension to be installed.

  1. Select the content sharing button or option
