Before the scheduled date and time of your video visit, you can use the link in your invitation email to test
the quality of your video broadcast. This test enables you to see your own video signal as it appears
when broadcast.
1) To initiate the test, follow the same steps as described in Joining the Video Visit. A video window
appears showing your broadcast image.
When the video window appears, it includes two images:
Your self-view image:
 Video directly from your webcam
 Labeled with the name you entered in the Display Name field of the Vidyo Access
Your broadcast image:
 Video sent through the Internet.
 Labeled with the name you entered in the Display Name field of the Vidyo Access
2) Check your broadcast image for both the quality of the video signal and the quality of your video
image. For example:
 Ensure that your video image is:
i. Centered with your head and shoulders in the frame.
ii. Not too zoomed-in or zoomed-out.
iii. Well lit – lighting should be bright and even.
 Ensure the video signal is clear and smooth (not jittery or pixilated).

Use your front-facing camera and center yourself in the video. If you have a stand for your
iPad/iPhone, use it. The camera should broadcast you straight on, so that you appear to be making
direct eye contact.
Make sure there is enough light. More light equals better details. If your area looks a little dark, either
turn on more lights or set up a lamp that can add some light. Avoid sitting in front of a window.
