Video Source external to IPad.

My company uses the iOS version of goth meeting with great success, however I have a situation where I would like to run a meeting where the speaker will be a significant distance from the iPad so I hope to connect an external camera to the IPad so as to be able to zoom and pan etc. I can connect the camera through an HDMI adaptor but don't know how to access the source. Can anyone assist?

Re: Video Source external to IPad.

Yes you would just run the GoToMeeting App on the iPhone as well and join as another attendee, then share the iPhone's camera. The iPhone and iPad do not need to be on the same network, they just both need a network connection.

 

I would definitely recommend a couple of test runs first, so you are comfortable with the set up. The only issue I can see is if you do not have enough attendee spots available to use one with your iPhone.

Hi Steve, 

Unfortunately I do not believe that it is possible to select and external source with our iOS App. What you could do (and I have done this in a GoToMeeting), is use the GoToMeeting App on an iPhone as a mobile camera.

Thanks for getting back to me Glenn. Using the iPhone is a thought.

Re: Video Source external to IPad.

So on the iPhone question. Is it possible to use the camera on the iPhone while using the gotomeeting app on the iPad? This would enable me to set up closer to the speaker while controlling things from a short distance away and be less intrusive. I could connect the iPad to the iPhone hotspot so they are one the same network?
