We're thrilled to unveil the redesigned Landing Page for Spaces. Here's what's new:
Modern Aesthetics
Our team has brought in a sleek, contemporary design that not only resonates with the modern-day digital landscape but also is aesthetically pleasing to all our users.
Full Customization with Vatom Studio
We understand that every Space is unique. With that in mind, we've made sure that our new landing page is fully customizable via Vatom Studio, giving you the reins to craft an entrance that matches the vibe of your space.
Even MORE customization options!
Customize blur amount, brightness, or separate images for desktop and mobile.
Streamlined Authentication
Ease-of-access was top-of-mind when we were working on this redesign. Now, attendees can choose from multiple login options, including Enterprise SSO. For those seeking a quick jump into the experience, the option to join as a guest or anonymously ensures that no one is left out.
Enhanced Security
To give hosts more control, spaces can now be optionally secured with Allowl (Token Gating), a Password, or even a Guest list entry, ensuring that the right audience gets in every time.
Customize Your Virtual Presence with 'Ready Player Me'
Before entering the Space, attendees can now select or customize their very own 3D avatars via 'Ready Player Me'. Dive into an immersive experience with a persona that’s uniquely you!
With these enhancements, we believe that every attendee's journey, right from the landing page to the heart of the Space, will be more engaging, secure, and tailor-made.
We're beyond thrilled to announce a feature that we believe will redefine the way businesses interact with events happening in real-time. Say hello to Firehose! πŸ”₯πŸ’§

Vatom Spaces v1.8.499

Version 1.8.498 and Version 1.8.499 have been released! 🏷️
πŸ› Bug Fixes
Fixed an issue where Mobile guests were being shown an invalid credit card error.
Fixed an issue where guests could freely change their microphone context without the correct privileges.
Fixed an issue where presenters sharing their screen could accidentally close their screenshare by clicking the preview window.
Fixed an issue where the vertical position was not recognized and guests were placed underneath the map when first loading or returning to the space.
✨ New Features
Object Texture Settings:
Object textures for planes and other default shapes can now be replaced with a URL from storage as well as uploading and replacing the file directly.
Presentation Zone Updates:
Several updates around presentation zones and presenter management.
Presentation Screenshare to In-World Screens:
Presentation Zones can now have an in-world screen directly connected. Presenters in the zone do not have to click the screen to screenshare, only choose "Screen" in the bottom control panel, and their screenshare will be directed to the in-world screen. This reduces some complexity around presenting in a zone.
If there is no screen connected to the zone, screenshare appears in the standard popup window. If a second user tries to share their screen, it will appear in a popup window.
Presenter Management:
When a presenter has a stage mic it is visualized in the People Menu's presentation zone category. The stage mic icon will appear if the user has a stage mic, and will be red or green depending on if their stage mic is muted.
Stage Mics:
The presenter
is now called a "Stage Mic" when within a presentation zone. You can give presenters and guests a "stage mic" to allow them to speak to everyone within the zone.
Version 1.8.497 has been released! 🏷️
πŸ› Bug Fixes
Grouping: Fixed an issue where objects in a group would snap to global position instead of grouped position, causing objects to "disappear". Objects should stay in position relative to the group centerpoint.
Disc Avatar Rotation: When using the "View Object" or other view-locking features, the disc avatars stay always facing the camera.
✨ New Features
Places Menu Visibility: You can now limit the visibility of Places Menu items by role. Create specific places that are only visible to Admins, Admins & Presenters, Presenters Only, or as usual, they can be visible to Everyone. You can still leave places visible in the list as "Inactive".
