Zoom Video Communications, Inc., a provider of video-first unified communications, has unveiled Immersive View, to make meeting more engaging and collaborative.
Announced at Zoomtopia 2020, Immersive View allows hosts to arrange video participants and webinar panelists into a single virtual background, bringing people together into one scene to connect and collaborate in a cohesive virtual meeting space.
To create the feeling of being in a classroom, a boardroom, a conference auditorium, or a favorite place to catch up with friends, Zoom’s Immersive View assembles up to 25 participants in one fun, consistent meeting environment.
Meeting and webinar hosts can select Zoom’s Immersive View the same way they would select the Speaker or Gallery View. When enabling Immersive View, hosts will have the option to automatically or manually place participants into a virtual scene of their choosing.
Hosts can also easily move participants around that scene and even resize a participant’s image for a more natural experience.
Hosts can easily change the scene or revert back to Speaker or Gallery View at any time. Zoom has provided a few scenes to get users started, but they can also upload their own. Hosts can even use their own video as an Immersive View scene, bringing participants into their personal virtual background.
