Professional background replacement
When placing a colored backdrop behind you, Visual Communicator will allow you to digitally replace that background with any image, graphic, or video clip.
Speak clearly and confidently without missing key points or memorizing lines using the built-in teleprompter. It's invaluable for clearly communicating any message on-camera, as well as for narrating photo slide shows and video montages off-camera.
Flexible recording options
Shoot segments out of sequence or at different times. Start in the middle, begin at the end, or update any section you've recorded at any time.
Ensure you get the best key possible using the advanced keying tools that help you adjust the transparency, spill, and color saturation of your key.
