If you’re one of the many people who have recently begun working from home, you might be looking for a professional background to show during online conference calls and meetings. While a bare wall can work, it’s less than ideal. Instead, video backdrops and motorized shades offer a more professional and effective way to create a background.
Video Backdrops Offer Professional Virtual Backgrounds
Video backdrops create virtual backgrounds that are useful in most online meeting situations. Fun backdrops that show tropical beaches and city skylines receive a lot of attention, but there also are more standard ones that work well in professional settings. A brief search will show video backdrops that have living rooms, offices, dining areas, and other common home settings. All of these are well-decorated, clutter-free and clean, making them the perfect background for a meeting when your own home is a mess.
Things to Keep in Mind when Using a Video Background
Video backdrops sometimes struggle to pick up smaller items. This can be a problem if you’re giving a presentation and need to demonstrate fine detail in a product. If an object is too small for the backdrop to recognize, viewers will not see the object.
Secondly, video backdrops don’t address lighting issues in your home. Both dim light and overly bright light can make it difficult for viewers to see you on a conference call, and no virtual background is going to change the light around you. This is where motorized window shades come in.
Motorized Shades Offer Convenient Sun Control for Your Home Office
When you need to adjust the natural light in your home office, motorized interior shades are easy to operate without having to get up from your desk. You can control them remotely with the touch of a button, integrate them into your smart home system for voice command or set them on a timer to open and close automatically when you want them to. These shades come in a variety of colors, fabrics, textures, and styles, so you can find the one that beautifully complements the rest of your décor.
An additional benefit of motorized shades is that they are safer than manual shades. Because they are cordless, they eliminate the risk of choking or strangulation. This makes them a popular choice for households with children or pets. The motor is also quiet, so it won’t distract from your video meeting.
