Additional Streaming Layouts for Team Live Events
currently you can choose between two streaming layouts (e.g. full screen or screen beside cam).
There would be so many cool other layout options to improve live events e.g.:
- Two speaker side by side (split screen)
- presentation on the left but two speaker on the right
- 4 speaker on screen
- large cam, small screen sharing content
Whatever the ideas are endless, but currently this is really limiting some streaming experience, for example if you have two speakers debating something I want to show both, but I can't.
Hi Ian, External App is not available Public Events.

Multiple Presenters on Screen, branded backgrounds...and more. These are all possible by making use of the External App feature to broadcast into Teams Live using RTMP ingest. See my LinkedIn post for some more info and happy to advise.

Ótimo, sugiro telas múltiplas para quem estiver assistindo pelo link possa ver dois ou mais apresentadores simultaneamente.
100% agree with all the requests of this forum! To expand possibilities on the Producer layer of the Teams Live Events would be awesome; personalized backgrounds, more speakers/content layouts....etc.
definitly needed also at least a addiitonal content in the queu would be so great..
Now that Microsoft goed for 49 cameras in Teams... It is time to add more features to LiveEvents.
Multi cameras/contents with customizable layouts, scenes/queues.
Queuing printer contents in production interface would be of an incredible value :-)
Any update on this? Current WFH makes this so necessary!
I think this would be great. Adding a video feed of the presenter along with their Powerpoint makes the feed much more personal to the attendees.
Up to four of the speakers on screen would be good for Q and A sessions.
Live Events are going to key in training post/peri COVID but we need to keep them human as that enhances learning and engagement of attendees.
Is it possible to add the presenter names on the live teams broadcast?

Having multiple speakers at once is essential to usability for us - we often have more than one speaker for a presentation and we try and keep Q&A sessions informal where different speakers contribute. I don't think we can use the tool until this functionality is added. Hopefully it will be so we don't have to look outside of Office 365 for our remote event functionality.
Agreed. We have a need to have an interpreter as a second feed that is larger than the current video feed while also presenting content.

Agreed this is awful that we only have 2 options.
custom background for the splitscreen, to add the ability to show your company logo.

Agreed. Live Events is a great feature, but I would love to be able to use it to host 3-4 speakers on screen at once, and also to include a "news" style layout, with a large speaker view and smaller content over their shoulder. The current split layout would make the content way too small to see if you used it in this way.
Agreed. Quite surprised you can't have at least two presenters on at the same time. Please add the option.
In the current climate where live events are far more common to host live Q&A type events, the ability to have more than one speaker on the screen at a time is REALLY needed. Does anyone know if this is going to happen??
I would love to be able to keep the current layout of presentation, and video on the right, but add more than one speaker on that righthand side in a stacked form. It seems like SO much wasted space, when it could be used to allow multiple people to be seen at once next to the presentation, without requiring the producer to switch the video feed via queueing each time...
I would like to have two speaker side by side or even more... :-)
I would also like to see the ability to have a Ticker running in the bottom of the screen in addition to having multiple video sources on the screen: eg two, three speakers side by side with another window displaying a video from a local source (Producer's device) or external source such as YouTube.
Two speakers side by side to create a duplex discussion would be so great!
