Here are some tips for using the Google Meet application on your NearHub board.

Install the Google Meet on NearHub

To start using Google Meet, sign up for a Google account and download the app from NearHub App Store. You can find your NearHub App Store easily after clicking the first choice in the middle of the bottom. If you need the latest version, you can also download it in Google Play Store.

Start a meeting

Open up Google Meet from your app list after you download it. Consider whether you want to use another device at the same time or not and then you can choose:
  • Join a meeting. This choice is recommended if you want to host the Google meeting from another device. Before joining a meeting, add your Meeting ID and password, if it is required.
  • Sign in your Google Meet account and host the meeting from NearHub

Note: We highly recommend testing it out before a big meeting, because there will be several pop-ups the first you use Google Meet (permission to record audio, permission to take photos and record video, etc). After you accept them, the pop-ups will not appear.

Share your NearHub screen with others in a Google meeting

Once you get connected to a Google meeting from your NearHub board, tap on the last option of the bottom line and click the “Share Screen”. Then you can share your full screen with other participants of the Google meeting. People can see everything you do on the NearHub screen until you click “Stop Sharing” (both two options are available)

Once you share your screen, it will minimize the Google Meet and bring your content to full-screen view. Now you can open NearHub if you need to use it. You can write something down on it and your audience will see  just as what you see on your screen. You may find that the page of Google Meet disappears, but don’t worry, it is still running; you can tap on the task manager in the center at the bottom when you need to open it.

What you write on NearHub board:

What your audience see:

Configure camera parameters

If you want to adjust camera parameters, tap on the “Setting" button on the lower right-hand corner and go on with the "Camera" module. Here you can configure your camera on Panoramic View mode or Auto-framing mode. The difference between two mode is the visible part of what your camera takes. In Panoramic View mode, NearHub presents the whole picture or video it takes. But in Auto-framing mode, you can find that it mainly presents the people in the camera, which means if you are the only person in front of the camera and you move backward, the camera will follow you and  magnify the pert you take up, so that audience will see you clearly in their screens. In Auto-framing mode if there are many people in front of camera, NearHub will include all people and magnify their part as much as possible.

Also, you can choose video mirroring if you want to. It means that a mirror-like effect will be put on your video.

Choose a way to connect audio service

NearHub board are equipped with built-in AI powered camera and 24-element microphone array. You can start your video conference with one click, and you don’t have to worry about connecting or being connected to any external devices accidentally. But in a larger meeting if you want more immersive meeting experience, an external microphone is highly recommended, such as Nearity A20 or A50.

(In USB mode, S55/S65/S75 supports up to 5 Nearity A20 microphones cascaded;
 In POE mode, S65/S75 supports up to 3 Nearity A20 microphones cascaded)
