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.

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!
Current layouts are very restrictive. A lot of black space when the split content/video layout could be completed with other videos to generate a discussion panel with up to 4 to 5 videos

Overlay !!! Could the video be in a PiP above the presentation?
4 speaker on screen
This would be extremely helpful to allow more than one camera to be viewed for with presentation on the side for Q&A. Moderator and Presenter on screen at the same time?

A feature to allow custom layouts would be ideal.

I agree that at least offering full split screen capabilities would be good. You can currently show a small video on the left while slides show up on the main canvas but see reasons to have split screen capabilities.

Would love for this as well, especially in the current global climate.
Would love to see an answer to this question.....this is a much needed feature to make Teams Live Event a useful tool.....
