During a video conference, the computer camera doesn't "see" the way the human eye does, therefore producing saturated images or images that have shadows. This poor picture quality will be what the remote participants are seeing, which could hinderance you from doing things such as making a sale, engaging the audience in a particular training session, or even deter a qualified interviewee.
The perfect combination of strategically placed LED lighting fixtures not only improves vertical illumination, but also creates uniform lighting and enhances the ability to adjust contrast within the space. Some critical contrast areas include:
- Participant to rear walls
- Participant to side walls
- Participant to work surface
- Display wall to video display

Room color and color of furniture within the space also contribute to effective video teleconferencing room lighting. To ensure clarity for images, use LED fixtures with dimmable controls.
The fact that these solutions can be easily implemented into any work space, as well as are cost effective and energy efficient through the use of LEDs, it's easy to experiment to get the perfect lighting into your video teleconferencing space.
