Zoom Virtual Backgrounds

The virtual background feature allows you to display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting. This feature works best with a green screen or solid background color and uniform lighting, to allow Zoom to detect the difference between you and your background.

You can access this through your Zoom settings > Virtual Background.

You may be presented with the option to download the “Smart Virtual Background Package.” Please complete this installation to unlock the automatic background detection feature in Zoom.

If this is the case, you will only be able to use the “I have a green screen” function and manually pick the color of your background.
