Webex Events - We'd like to allow the Host to 'Hide panelists not on video'

To conduct a true event online, we could have speakers coming in and out of the event - it isn't proper to keep them on camera when they are not speaking, And we do not want the box with their initials taking space on the screen. As well, if I am conducting a fireside chat between two people, I'd want their videos to be super large and the only ones showing on the page.

    I completely agree - please enable the ability for Hosts to 'Hide Non Video Participants' for all attendees.

    It is very distracting to have the people who run the tech appear on the screen for attendees. Depending on event numbers we can sometimes have 5 or 6 panelists who are logged in to manage Q&A and technical audio etc for attendees, this takes up valuable real estate on the attendees screens.

    The current feature to 'hide non video participants is great if you are host but it makes more sense for this feature to be able to be activated by the host for all attendees...
