Webinato's eCurtain feature allows Admins and Presenters to hide the stage or mute the microphone feed for Attendees, while they are preparing their presentation. This is useful when a presentation is about to begin and there are already attendees in the room but the presenters or moderators are not ready yet. By lowering the eCurtain moderators can talk among each other and set up the Image tabs, open a PowerPoint etc... and finally raise the eCurtain only when everything is ready.
Optionally background (or on-hold) music can be played while the eCurtain is down.
How to Lower the eCurtain:
- Click on the Tools button on the lower left corner of the room.
- Select eCurtain from the menu by clicking on it. Choose any available options that you desire. Once you click Start the eCurtain lowers for all Attendees.
- A yellow flashing eCurtain is down button appears on all moderators' screens in upper-left corner of the room.
How to raise the eCurtain:
Any moderator can click on the yellow and blinking eCurtain is down button to raise the eCurtain. All Admins and Presenters will hear and see a countdown timer for 5 seconds before broadcast.
