The unique advantages of Vidrio are still present in the weathercaster look: you can gesture and interact naturally with your presentation; you can present any apps on your computer; and you can give your presentation via any screen sharing or recording software.

You can move yourself to the side of the content, instead of moving the content to the sides of your screen.

For the best background removal, To achieve the best background removal, we recommend using a professional green screen (actually, we prefer blue screens!), and ensuring that the screen is well lit with bright, white light.

Vidrio’s new green screen feature is currently BETA. Let us know what you think — just email Jim.
