Customize settings

There are a number of settings you can change for a Presentation. Update these from the presentation “Settings” tab.


This is the name of your presentation and will be seen in the ViewMedica menu system.

Poster image

Set or change the poster image used by your presentation. By default, the poster uses the first ViewMedica video in your presentation. Otherwise, it uses your logo or uploaded art.

Playback Options

These options change how users can interact with the presentation.

  • Visibility: By default, your presentation is set to be “Public.” This means it is available under "Presentations" in the main menu of the On-Demand player. If you don't want the presentation to be public, change its visibility to “Private.”

  • Skipping: By default, users can skip items in your presentation. If you want to make sure they see everything, you can set the skipping setting to “No Skipping.”

  • Language: By default, your presentations will only play in your On-Demand default language. If you want your presentation to repeat the ViewMedica videos in another available language (English, then Spanish), change this setting to “Two Languages.”

Convert Presentation

You can convert Presentations to a Collection Menu or VMcast loop.
