Virtual Background for Webinar

Virtual Background for Webinar

The Virtual Background feature can be used to display an image or gif or effects as your background during a webinar, or you can use nothing and simply blur the background. This feature works best preferably with a green screen and uniform lighting to allow Zoho Meeting to detect the difference between you and your background. You can only change virtual backgrounds during video conferencing.
