This article applies to: Montage Linux box, Montage Mini, Montage Lite, Montage Windows Receiver

Windows devices can be connected in two ways;

1. Using the Montage Windows Application (recommended for best graphics performance)

2. Using the Chrome Web client

 

1. Using the Montage Windows Application 

Go to www.joinmontage.com/download to download the Windows® application and follow the on-screen instructions to install on the PC.

 

Once installed, double click the Montage icon to launch the application.

 

 

When Montage opens, enter Attendee Name, Meeting ID, and a PIN if the organiser has requested it.  Click ‘Join’ when ready.

2. Using the Chrome Web client (www.joinmontage.com)

If using Windows®, Mac®, Linux® or Chromebook® attendees can connect using the Montage Web Client in Google Chrome®.

 

Chrome® can be downloaded from http://www.google.com/chrome

 

On your first visit, you will be prompted to install the Montage Chrome Extension.  Click 'Get our extension' to install.

Enter Attendee’s Name, Meeting ID and optional pin for additional security.  Click ‘Join Now’ when ready to connect. 

 

Next, a prompt will appear asking what the attendee wishes to share – either the entire desktop or a specific window. Once an option is selected, click ‘Share’ to be connected to the Montage meeting.

 

When connected using the web client, attendees must keep the Chrome browser window open in order to stay connected to the meeting.
