PiP Presentation Evolution
Electronic PiP presentations and web conferencing are still new technologies. The goal for any new technology is to enhance or simplify a task a person would perform in every day life. Some electronic presentations show a document or object under the camera but you speak as a disembodied voice. Other people imagine a web conference as showing someone’s face while you talk to them over a distance. However, this does not accurately replicate how you would speak in person. If you were in the same room with someone, you would not simply stare at them the entire conversation – at least not without it becoming a little awkward eventually. The same holds true if you never looked at the person you were talking to you. You would, of course, want to make eye contact every few minutes but you would also want to turn your attention elsewhere: an object, a document, etc.
How PiP Changes Presentations
PiP, or “Picture-in-Picture,” allows you to speak electronically in a way closer to how you would in person, seeing the speaker’s expression and eyes while also seeing what that person is talking about. Now you can connect in the same way you would in a one-on-one conversation, conveying emotion and sincerity, while still communicating important information as efficiently as possible.
The HoverCam Neo 3 visualizer includes two cameras capable of doing Picture-in-Picture. Check it out for yourself and see if PiP does not improve your presentations.
