Manfrotto has a range of VC Backgrounds that can be used as virtual backgrounds for online meetings, live streams, or as a regular background.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of people have been forced to work from home and that often involves having to jump on conference calls or even conduct webinars or participate in live streams. If you are at home and you don’t have a dedicated space you may not want people having to see your personal space, especially if you are drying clothes indoors or you are living or working in a small space that may well be shared with others. One way to solve this is by putting up a virtual background. Sure, you could just use the background blur effect if you were on Skype, but let’s face it, that does look pretty bad.
The Manfrotto Virtual Backgrounds are self-standing and they are constructed using a simple lightweight aluminum frame and crossbar, They also have low profile feet for added stability so you can slide them under furniture or other objects. They are 2m high by 2m wide.
In the photos on Manfrotto’s website, they look to be relatively easy to assemble.
In a nice touch, they are double-sided, so you can choose from two different backgrounds.
Manfrotto offers 5 different reversible backgrounds.
You can even choose to have a custom one made up, although this will take 2-3 weeks to be done.
