Stanford Medicine Zoom Virtual Background

The Stanford Center for Continuing Medical Education has created a number of Stanford Medicine inspired virtual backgrounds for use during your upcoming zoom meetings.

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 and uniform lighting, to allow Zoom to detect the difference between you and your background. If you do not have access to a green screen, a solid color background will work as well.  

For more information on how to upload a virtual background to your zoom account please visit the Zoom Help Center here.

Please note that when you upload your zoom image it may appear reversed from your view. However, it will appear correctly to the participants viewing your screen during your zoom call. To adjust your view please disable the "mirror" feature in your zoom video settings.
