What background in video conferencing?

While there are no formalities to be observed for private Skype conferences with friends or family, there are a few things to consider when using it for work.

Avoid funny backgrounds

In informal online meetings, fun Skype backgrounds are perfectly fine. However, when an important meeting with business colleagues is coming up, you want to appear serious and authentic with your background.

Choose modern office backgrounds

From serious to funny, there are many different types of Skype backgrounds . When communicating with customers, it is important to radiate professionalism and competence.

Avoid free video conference backgrounds such as B. a beach or space background. This looks unnatural to your customers.

Choose a plain Skype home office background

A popular Skype background is the bookshelf, which is meant to create an intelligent effect. Unfortunately, a bookshelf is not really ideal.

Your skype background should not be too distracting and rather simple. Avoid bright and bright colors.

An animated background is also not recommended, as your conversation partner will focus less on your presentation and more on your background.

Opt for an individualized meeting background

Every video conference is your chance to gain more visibility for your company. With a Background with your company logo makes you stand out, especially in large virtual events, because everyone can recognize your company at first glance.

What format for a skype background?

Loud Skype has no size limitations when adding a virtual background. However, it is recommended to adapt your virtual background to the aspect ratio of your camera before uploading.

With our Officery HD images you can start right away without having to make any adjustments beforehand.

This is how your meeting background comes into its own

Some have the problem that their virtual background is not properly blinded. As soon as you move, parts of the correct background are briefly faded into the picture.

To avoid such unsightly mistakes, follow these tips:

  1. Use an external webcam. In terms of performance, laptop cameras are not always sufficient to completely display a virtual background. We recommend using an external webcam. This not only ensures high image quality, but also makes your Skype background look better.

  2. Pay attention to sufficient lighting . Poor light means that your camera cannot display colors and contrasts correctly. Use an external Lighting to emphasize your natural appearance.

  3. Make sure your clothes are not the same color as your virtual background.

  4. Position yourself in front of a solid color background. This can e.g. B. be a white wall.

  5. Pro Tip: For best results, use a green screen . A Green screen is used in many ways in Hollywood films. The “chroma keying” optimally removes your background. You can also use this technology in your home office for your video conference!
