Home Setup: Start now to record on Zoom
“The play button is the most compelling call to action on the web.”
You are going to do a Zoom recording at home.
Here are the golden rules and the setups for good videos.
Before the recording starts
Image & Sound
Click on “Enable HD” in the video settings
To improve the quality of you meetings, opt for cameras instead of your webcam. You can buy a camera of better quality (1080p camera for example)
Clean your background environment. You can also use a virtual background to keep your surroundings private.
Position yourself in front of a window or add another light next to you
Preferably use an external microphone.
Make sure that you have a strong Internet network. Therefore, use a cable connection (of at least 100 MB). To test your connection: https://www.speedtest.net
PowerPoint presentations: make it easy to read
Minimum Font 24
5 cm margin
Maximum 10 Slides
When the recording begins
Stand up straight on your chair
Record your Zoom meeting simply by pressing the " Recording " button. Once the meeting ends, the file is converted.
Always look at the camera and not at people. For this, get the webcam at the eye-level
Keep your hands within the frame
Not talking? Mute your microphone
...& don't forget to save your recording to your file at the end of the recording ;)
You are now good to go & ready to glow!
