The Lightboard studio is an automated video recording solution that uses a pane of glass between the presenter and the camera, special markers, lighting, and software to allow you to write or draw content on the glass while facing the camera. The studio is designed for unattended self-service recording. The Lightboard Control Center also allows you to share and interact with overlaid images and/or videos. The Lightboard studio can be used to create recorded videos to share in courses, online or in live meetings via Teams, Collaborate or Zoom.
