Technology Check

You can access video appointments using your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, or your desktop computer.

# 1: Download the app: If you’re using a Smartphone or Tablet, Download the free Medeo app from Google Play or iTunes stores.

# 2: Check your internet connection: Check that you have a fast WiFi or 4G LTE connection. Use a wired connection and disable your wireless connection when possible.

# 3: Get external devices set-up: Use high-quality audio/video devices (headphones, external microphone etc.) for high sound quality. Plug each device (camera, microphone, etc) directly into your computer’s USB ports when possible instead of a USB hub. USB ports are generally built into your flat panel monitor or are built into your laptop’s docking station.

# 4: Optimize your performance: If you’re using a laptop, avoid running on battery as it can reduce performance and video quality. If your computer has a Power Plan (all Window and Mac laptops do), choose “High Performance.”

Device Placement Tips

#1. Camera: Position your camera near your monitor and place the video conferencing window close to the camera. This will improve eye contact during your chat.

#2. Speaker/Microphone: Place external microphones on your desk directly in front of you and away from your speakers to reduce audio interference.

#3 Lighting: Make sure the main light source – a window or light – is in front of you, lighting your face.

#4 Stay in one place: Losing Wifi or mobile connection will usually drop video calls.

Additional video appointments tips

  • Turn off other devices or turn them to silent mode
