A hybrid or online meeting poses a lot of challenges to the corporate world. Throughout the world, companies that used to meet face-to-face have had to switch to online meetings.
Even if we will ever be able to proclaim an end to pandemics, that switch is not going away. The online culture has already fully embraced many companies - and even if yours is not one of them, you are likely to come across companies that are 100% online and remote now.
When hopping on sales calls or participating in corporate meetings online, how can you stay professional and put in a good first impression? That’s the question - and challenge - that many companies come across.
Virtual Backgrounds, a new LiveWebinar feature that will enable you to deliver stellar presentations no matter where you are, is an easy answer to it.
Find out how.
What is Virtual Background?
A Virtual Background is either a picture, a video, or an effect that is displayed as your background during an online meeting - be it a webinar, a video conference call, or a virtual summit in your corporation.
A Virtual Office Background identifies people and covers everything associated with a background, so everything except a presenter or a speaker is covered.
We will go into detail later on how this gives a fresh, professional, and very business-like look.

Benefits of Office Virtual Backgrounds for Enterprise
How come enterprises such as corporations, banks, and government institutions should use a virtual office background? Below, you will find a few reasons, benefits and use cases.
#1 Professional look, wherever you are
Having employees spread across the globe is the norm in a disrupted world. All over the world, literally. Many of them are not stuck in their offices, some have chosen different lifestyles, such as working in hotels, villas, or even on the beach.
However, they still need to maintain a professional image, no matter where they participate in a conference call from.
The same is true for employees who always seem to be on the move. Changing trains, flying between airports and even switching cafes to work - that is their everyday life, far away from 9 to 5 in the office.
There is one thing all of these groups have in common:
due to the fact that these individuals do not sit at the office, their look over video conferences may be considered unprofessional.
And there is one solution to solve it:
With a Virtual Office Background, each employee can be in the office - virtually. It is nearly impossible to tell whether or not someone has virtual background enabled with such advanced technology. The wide choice of available options allows you to not only find a casual photo of your office layout but also to customize it so it reflects YOUR office, YOUR brand, YOUR desk.
Customization at its finest.
#2 More unified experience - internally and externally
It is extremely difficult to create a corporate culture in a remote work environment.
Those who don't work at an office location and work remotely may feel dissociated from the company. Regardless of how effective a conference call is, it will never replace sitting face to face with colleagues, but you can make the distance less daunting with an office virtual background.
By creating a few virtual backgrounds that are branded with your company and resemble your offices and premises, you may unify the entire team and bring brilliant employee experiences.
Obviously, this also affects business relationships with partners or clients. In every case, potential clients will always be presented with your company's professional credentials, no matter which employee is talking to them. In the same way, any webinars or summits your company holds are beautifully integrated and displayed.
#3 It’s not only about pandemics
Although video conference calls have been accelerated by the pandemic, they aren't going anywhere after the dust settles. The situation will always arise where people work remotely or are ill, but still, have to be available for the meeting. Corporations may be able to master their conference calls through office virtual backgrounds by ensuring that participants are able to tune into them no matter where they are.
Speaking of which...
#4 Making video calls more comfortable for everyone
Let’s face it: video calls aren't for everyone, yet everyone has to attend them now. While there are excuses such as "my camera isn't working", they may not be the best every time. Virtual Office Backgrounds give all sides of the "video transaction" a sense of comfort.
As a result, it is easier to focus on the presenter than to examine their background - even unconsciously. Using the office virtual background feature, presenters are not constrained by a poor background they may have in their real workplace. Those details in conference calls or online meetings are not disruptive or bothersome.
Harmony reigns throughout the company. Stress no more. There may also be more attendees who turn their cameras on, and thus a higher attendance rate.
