The latest generation of conferencing apps are adding features such as multiple live views, in the new Front Row feature in Microsoft Teams. With the ProBeam BU60PSM’s 21:9 ultra-wide picture, attendees can enjoy an intuitive experience where virtual participants are all shown simultaneously across the bottom of the screen, below the main presenter’s image.
