Rendezvous connection with less bandwidth
Rendezvous uses a lot of bandwidth when a lot of guests are connected.
90% of the times only host needs every guests video & audio for the show, but guests doesn't need video feed from other guests.
It would be great if there were option to great session with "sound only -mode from guest to another"
So for example we have live show with Host + 6 guests.
Host could see and hear all 6 guests, but each guest could see+hear Host, but only hear other guests. It would reduce bandwidth significantly when using sub optimal connections.
Hope we get feature like this.
Something similar to this is being investigated.
WIRE-18130 Rendezvous Control Bandwidth Return to Guests
Variations have been lowering video frame rate and frame size. Dropping video altogether certainly is within that concept so I'll add your comments to the lower bandwidth to guests feature investigation.
