Enhancing Live Teaching Experience with Tap-to-Focus in 100ms SDK

What's this blog post about?

Online classes have become increasingly popular due to the pandemic, and ensuring a smooth experience for both teachers and students is crucial. One common problem faced by teachers using digital whiteboards during live teaching sessions is that the camera focus shifts whenever they move in front of the board. To address this issue, 100ms implemented tap-to-lock-focus functionality as part of their iOS SDK. This feature allows teachers to easily lock the focus of the camera onto the whiteboard, ensuring that it remains in focus throughout the class. The tap-to-focus functionality is integrated directly into the HMSVideoView API, making it easy for developers to implement and roll out.
