Live Studio - Settings
When selecting Live Studio as the room video mode, the host will be able to switch between two tabs: Streams and Settings. In this article you will learn about all the possibilities at the Settings tab.
In the Settings tab, the room host and co-host can control the layout, the overlays, and the background.
Moving the Settings tab
By default, the Settings tab will be on the left side of the room where it can be swapped with the Streams tab using a toggle button.
If you want to see both tabs without having to use the toggle button, you can move the Settings tab to the right side of the room by pressing Move to right menu.
If you want to go back to the original layout, press Move to left menu.
There are 7 layout options:

A stream overlay is graphic content that is overlaid on top of the live stream content. These graphics are usually positioned around the edges of the screen so that the center remains unobstructed.
The Live Studio offers you the option to overlay your logo, lower thirds, and chyrons on top of the live stream.
The company logo can be displayed on the upper left, upper right, bottom right, or not displayed at all.
The lower third is a graphic overlay that will be displayed in the lower area of the screen. To have lower thirds in your session, type the title and message > toggle the correspondent button on as shown in the gif below.
In case you need to make changes, edit the text and click Apply to update the lower third.
As a room host, you will be able to type both a title and a message and save the lower thirds as presets to be reused.
The chyron is an electronically generated caption that occupies the lower area of the screen and will overlay the streaming. To have a chyron in your session, remember to toggle the correspondent button on, as shown in the gif below. The chyron's text can be saved as presets to be reused.
If you wish to reuse texts or simply have them prepared before the event goes live, you can add presets for Lower Thirds and Chyrons. You only need to select them from the drop down menu as shown in the image below:
The stream label gives you the option to hide name label and headlines. On top you can see both options enabled and below when they are disabled.
