Abstract

When a presenter in a shared network/web meeting has moved to a subsequent slide/screen, they need to know when the other meeting participants can see the new data, before continuing with their presentation. In some meetings, there is a core of meeting participants, that should be on the meeting as the content is relevant to them, but sometimes the meeting invite may be extended to other that might be interesting in listening in. In this case it is important that the core meeting participants have their screens rendered before the presenter continues, but it might not be imperative that everyone else also has their screens updated., especially if some of these other participants are on a slow network. This invention is around deciding who or how many of the meeting participants need to have the data, and prioritising their bandwidth over the other less important participants.

Prioritised Bandwidth for different groups in a shared Network meeting.

When a presenter in a Shared network meeting has moved to a subsequent slide/screen, they need to know when the other meeting participants can see the new data, before continuing with their presentation.

    In some meetings, there is a core of meeting participants, that should be on the meeting as the content is relevant to them, but sometimes the meeting invite may be extended to other that might be interesting in listening in. In this case it is important that the core meeting participants have their screens rendered before the presenter continues, but it might not be imperative that everyone else also has their screens updated., especially if some of these other participants are on a slow network.

    This article details the decisions associated with who or how many of the meeting participants need to have the data, and prioritising their bandwidth over the other less important participants.

    The grouping of participants is initially determined by the meeting invite, using "TO", "CC" or "FYI" to prioritise the attendees within the meeting. At any point before or during the meeting the organiser can dynamically alter the group memberships and the network bandwidth management policy will update to reflect the new group structure.
