*Use the desktop installment.
*Find quiet room.
*Use a fast wired network connection (avoid Wifi).
*Wall mount power supply for your PC (to avoid battery issues).
*We recommend diffuse lighting from the front (e.g. window). We do not recommend lighting from behind or above (neons), because this causes underexposed and poorly lit faces.
*A neutral and static background helps to reduce distractions during the talk.
*Some people prefer giving the presentation while standing. This significantly improves the intonation and makes the presentation more dynamic.
*Click one of the email service buttons. Your chosen email service will appear with a preformatted invitation.
==Before your meeting==
Connect your computer to a '''wired network'''. Bandwidth is possibly the most important asset to a successful video conference call.
*start this [http://speed.conferenceroomsystems.com/ speedtest].
The yellow bar for download and upload should be above 1.2Mbps for one-on-one meetings. A group(for example 5) zoom meeting should be above 20Mbps.
*To optimize video quality go to the '''start video''' arrow on the lower left side. Select '''Video settings...'''.
*Select '''Enable HD''' and '''Touch up my appearance'''.
'''Control video and audio quality.'''
Invest in a quality webcam and speaker and microphone headset. These provide better video and audio than your computer’s built-in system. Try to hold meetings in quiet, indoor locations to control ambient noise.
'''Adjust your lighting.'''
Don’t sit directly in front or beside a bright light source, or else all the audience sees is a bright light and a shadowy figure. Experiment with moving lamps and your camera until you can see your brightly-lit face on the screen.
'''Think about your background.'''
Try to provide a nice, plain background. You can’t control everything in a mobile environment, but you should give some thought to background prior to your meeting.
