Green Screen

Green screen is a powerful multimedia tool for video presentations and online lectures.

  • Allows presenter to interact directly with the content on the same screen.
  • PowerPoint slides can include animations, transitions, and embedded videos.
  • Slides must leave at least 1/3 blank margin on the side where the presenter will stand, to not cover any content.
  • Unlike with Mediasite recordings, slides cannot be updated after the initial recording.
  • Green screen recording superimposes the presenter over the PowerPoint presentation. With a green backdrop, software removes all shades of green and replaces it with your content.
  • The presenter must not wear any green (or even teal) clothing for these recordings.

  • Presenters have a reference monitor to view themselves during the recording, as well as an optional teleprompter for a script.
  • All on-screen and closed-captioned text is searchable in Mediasite presentations, allowing students to find the exact content they are looking for.
  • Adding the iPad to your green screen presentation increases interactivity: annotate slides, highlight specific text, work through equations on-screen, pinch-to-zoom and use a virtual laser pointer.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
