Elevating Online Meetings with Video Pencil: A Complete Setup Guide

ecamm live online presentations stream deck May 19, 2023

In our digital age, interactivity is the linchpin for audience engagement, and writing directly on the screen during your online meetings and presentations can take this engagement to a new level.

Imagine annotating your on-screen content in real time, highlighting key points, or simply jotting down impromptu ideas. It's this sort of dynamic interaction that can transform a regular meeting into a compelling experience.

I experimented with numerous tools to achieve this goal of effortless on-screen writing to use in conjunction with Ecamm Live. Each solution, however, was laden with its own set of challenges. Some necessitated additional expensive equipment, others lacked the desired precision, and many fell short in aesthetic appeal.

Most notably, they all harboured a certain degree of friction, metaphorically speaking, that deterred me from utilising them to their full potential. The quest for the perfect tool seemed endless, until I was introduced to Video Pencil... a ground-breaking app for the iPad designed specifically for the task!

Now, what makes Video Pencil stand apart? It is the fact that video pencil combines all of the best parts of all of the other solutions. It is a completely wireless solution. It uses an iPad and an Apple Pencil, rather than specialist hardware. It is easy to use.

The real standout feature for me though, is the ability to see your camera/Ecamm Live output directly on your iPad. This means you can make precise annotations while being fully aware of their placement relative to your existing content, ensuring a seamless viewing experience for your audience.

When combined with a simple Elgato Stream Deck button to toggle it on and off, the result is the frictionless solution I always dreamed of!

Whether you're a teacher, a business professional, or a creative, Video Pencil can enhance your digital communication by adding an extra layer of interactivity. So, how do you seamlessly integrate it with Zoom and Teams meetings? My latest tutorial video answers this.

I guide you through the setup process with Ecamm Live, detail steps for seamless integration with Video Pencil, and how to bring this combination into your Zoom and Teams meetings. I also tackle some 'gotchas' that might trip you up during setup. By the end, you'll be ready to elevate your meetings with on-screen annotations.

Remember, meetings are about engagement, dialogue, and collaboration. On-screen writing enhances understanding and increases participation. By integrating Video Pencil, you're one step closer to conducting more interactive and impactful online meetings.
