PMA.studio can interface with PMA.live for live broadcast sessions. Think of it as desktop sharing for whole slide images, but better (there's much less of a delay compared to conventional desktop sharing approaches).
Broadcasting a session allows you to create live session using the current PMA.core server you are connected to. Once you click on the broadcast button it setup live session by creating a conference and you can view it in the conference tray panel added to the viewport. Panel provides you all the details related to the conference like conference link to share, nickname, live mode, everyone in control and the count of number of participants viewing the session.
