Best practices when using Presenter Overlay mode

  • Practice the position of your video before your presentation and as you transition slides. You can always change the position of your video in your video settings during the meeting.
  • Be mindful of your hands — when using your hands to explain something, make sure to keep your hands inside the video camera frame.
  • Consider using a green screen. For more information about green screens, see Using a green screen with RingCentral Video Virtual Background and Presentation mode.
