Black Friday is just around the corner. November 26th is the day again! Promotions and discounts are around like leaves in autumn. The best time to upgrade your webinar setup, or if you want to get a jump start on webinars.

Webcam

In most webinars, the presenter is in the picture. Investing in a good webcam then has several advantages. For example, you can use a monitor without a built-in camera and have more freedom. After all, you can easily place your camera in a place where you have room to move. A webcam also helps to stream in high resolution. Broadcast your webinar in high quality!

Digital Camera

Want to adjust certain settings (FPS/resolution)? Then you can simply use a digital camera. With a digital camera, you can easily set your background to be out of focus, for example, so that the focus is on you. Just make sure the camera has an HDMI connection.

Black Friday Deal Selection:

Tripods for webcam

A tripod is one of the most useful items to add to your collection. You place your webcam on your tripod and immediately have a stable image, can adjust how high you put it, and have even more freedom of movement. There is a wide selection of tripods, from desk stands to tripods.

Tripod for camera

You can use a tripod to set the ideal height for your camera. Using a tripod in combination with a camera really gives you the most options when it comes to how you want to be on-screen.

Switcher for camera to webcam

With external equipment, such as cameras, you have more options for playing image and sound in your webinar. Cameras often have their own apps that allow you to configure them as a webcam for your webinar. Then you use a switcher to switch between the different HDMI inputs. The switcher is recognized by WebinarGeek as a webcam. We have found some nice switchers for you!

Microphone

Good sound quality is essential during your webinar. You don't want your message to come across worse, or not at all. You can easily connect an external microphone. Choose a wireless or fixed microphone, depending on how much you plan to move.

Black Friday Deal Selection:

Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important things when it comes to how you appear on-screen. If you can, use as much daylight as possible. A dark space needs to be naturally lit in order for you to be properly visible. This doesn't have to be expensive, a small LED panel will do the job. You can sometimes attach them to your monitor very easily. That way, you'll come out better on screen.

External monitor

Using a second monitor during your webinar is very convenient to easily manage interactions. You show your webinar environment on the main screen, and on the second screen, you easily keep an overview of incoming chat messages.

Black Friday Deal Selection:

Laptop stand

One of the best tips when it comes to getting good footage is to not film yourself from below. A laptop stand is a simple but effective solution. It forces you to adopt an upright posture, which always benefits your presentation!

Green screen

Now that we all work from home a lot, it's almost impossible to avoid hosting your viewers at the kitchen table. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to turn your kitchen table into a professional webinar studio. For example, you can use chroma keying, also known as a green screen. There are several variants of this.

In this blog, you will read more about how to use a green screen.

Background

If you are giving a webinar at home, you can leave it nice and homely of course. Viewers often like that because it is personal. Would you like it to be a bit more professional? A background cloth is a good solution.
