Can you see the bright area Thats PA

Many people use video conferencing programs such as ZOOM or Google Meet for non-face-to-face meetings๐Ÿ’ป, and I’m sure you’ve used the “Create a small group meeting” feature that both of these programs have, usually for team meetings or just for a quick chat.

Have you ever wanted to use this feature in ZEP, but thought it was inconvenient because it doesn’t exist? Yes, it’s true that ZEP doesn’t have the ability to split groups and move them to a conference room, but it has a unique feature that is hard to find in other programs! ๐Ÿ˜‰

ZEP has a unique feature called PA (Private Area)

In ZEP Space, where video chat and voice are shared when the distance between avatars on the screen is close, PA is a special area that becomes your own, or our own, space. When an avatar enters this area, only the avatars in the set PA can communicate with each other๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ The PA is displayed as a brighter area than the surrounding area, so people in the darker areas can’t hear what’s going on in the PA! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Now it’s time to enter your unique zone ID. Think of a zone with the same ID as a single PA. If you want to configure multiple PAs in your space, you’ll need to enter different IDsโ—

If you enter the same ID for all of them, participants who enter PA 1 will be able to communicate in a zone that is isolated from the rest of the space, but may be sharing voice and video with PA 2 ๐Ÿฅน

In this picture, the tiles marked with an X are “impossible,” which means they are off-limits to avatars, just like a wall in real life. The tiles labeled PA represent private areas! ๐Ÿ‘
