Zoom Backgrounds

Zoom is a cloud-based service that provides online meeting, content sharing, and video conferencing capability. The service includes a virtual background feature that allows users to display an image as the background during such teleconferences.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore’s (UMB) Office of Communications and Public Affairs has created a variety of branded Zoom background templates to bring a UMB look to your teleconferences.

To learn how to add and use these backgrounds, visit Zoom’s virtual background webpage.

To learn more about Zoom, visit UMB’s Zoom webpage.

Please Note:

You may have to deselect “Mirror my video“ in the video settings tab. This setting will cause the logo/image to appear backward to you, but the users you are talking to will see it displayed correctly.
