Glossary of Terms

Participants in a cineSync Review session - equivalent to 'seats.' A user can be a session initiator or a guest, and as each person joins a session, they take up one 'user or 'seat. The maximum number of users allowable in a Sync Review session is limited by the number of users defined in the account. So 5 user accounts will support a session with one session initiator and up to 4 guests, whereas a 2 user session will only allow the session initiator and one guest.
