Presenter video backgrounds


Hello All,

I am always on the lookout for solutions for backgrounds to the presenter video so that the appearance is professional. I recommend a white wall at the moment to the team and we also supply them with company logos to put on the wall, in offices thay also have other roll-ups etc to sit in the background. I tried the Zoom virtual background for the first time recently and despite the hassle of erecting a green screen, it does look really good - ever fancied doing your webinar from space anyone? Although I favour (and we are contracted) to Adobe Connect at the moment.

Anyone else tried the virtual background? Any other good solutions to backgrounds anyone is using? 

Thanks John

  • Some cool ideas here, thanks!

    I just invested in a narrow ladder style bookshelf to add a bit of interest.  £85 from Habitat!


    • Looks good. Nordic design also. Thanks Paul.

      • You'd never guess I worked for a Finnish company for over 20 years ;-)

        • Kiitos! I have been living in Finland for almost 10 years. Moikka!

  • I have a coworker who uses a chalkboard divider similar to this one -

    It creates a backdrop that can be customized with messages or graphics that are content related.

    • I agree, great idea. Thanks Bryan. ps My kids would also love it!

    • Oh I LOVE that! Thanks for the share Bryan, what a creative idea!

  • On a side note, Zoom is working on being able to use the virtual backgrounds without the need for a green screen and hope to launch something this year :D

    • That would be great. Looking forward to try that. Thanks Jo.

  • Hi John,  I have tried using a green screen.  I have one that just 'pops up' which is great as it's easy to store, but it takes a while to get it straight and crease-free!  I tend to save it for the odd day when I need to record a few videos (maybe I'm just lazy).  For virtual classrooms, if I use my camera for any length of time, I just go with a fairly plain wall.  Although I do have bookcases in the background, they're the tidiest ones ever!
