When having video meetings you sometimes prefer not to show everything in the room behind you. In Vectera you can blur your background or upload a background image for your camera.

Both features can be used in Google Chrome, Edge and Opera browser.

Set up a image background for your team

Team admins can set up a camera background image for the entire team in the team settings. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to your team settings

  2. Below 'Brand' you will see Camera background image

  3. Click on upload image and select the correct image

  4. Now you will see a preview of the image

  5. Hit save!

Choose the image background for your camera

You can activate the image background in the meeting room Settings or on the waiting screen.

  1. Open Settings in the meeting room OR click on Audio/video + change and test cam/mic on the waiting screen

  2. Activate your camera (if not yet active)

  3. Click on No background below your camera and select Image background

  4. The image background will show now

The image will show mirrored on your end. Your guest(s) will see the image as you uploaded it! If you want to test this, you can enter the meeting room as a guest in incognito mode.

Which file types can be used

Upload an image with one of the following formats: jpeg, jpg, png, ico, icon or tiff.

The Vectera team recommends a size of at least 720px high and wide. Preferably a 4:3 ratio. (eg. 960 width and 720 height)

Can guests use this background image

The image background is not available for guests. If your guest doesn't want his/her background to show, he/she can use the blur background feature in settings!
