Setting canvas orientation - Amazon Chime SDK

Setting canvas orientation

In compositing, the canvas contains all your video streams. You can specify a Landscape or Portrait orientation for the canvas. Landscape provides a 16:9 aspect ratio. Portrait provides a 9:16 aspect ratio.

The following image shows the portrait orientation.
