Tips for Effective OTS Usage

  • Content Relevance: Ensure the OTS graphic or clip directly relates to the presenter’s topic, avoiding confusion for viewers.
  • Scale and Position: Position the OTS insert so it doesn’t obscure the presenter’s face or any vital information they may be sharing.
  • Quality: As with all visual elements, make sure your OTS content is clear and high-quality. A low-res insert can detract from the overall presentation.

Using the Over-The-Shoulder Insert layer in mimoLive can greatly elevate the quality of your broadcasts. With a touch of planning and the software’s versatile tools, even the most basic production can take on a professional sheen.
