Best Practices

"What should I wear? Where should I stand? Where do I write?" We answer all of these questions and more in our Best Practices video.

Topics Covered:

  1. Be Natural. Mistakes happen-viewers don't expect perfection.
  2. Clothes: Dark solid colors or simple patterns work best.
  3. Layout Considerations
  4. Keep it Short: 1 topic per video (and under 5 minutes) ideally.
  5. 1 Board per video, no erasing while recording.
  6. Test: whether recording or going live, test first.
  7. Keep it Simple! Start by recording a video only writing with the marker.

Keeping lightboard glass clean and clear when erasing doesn't need to be a chore. At Revolution Lightboards we combine all the key elements to make erasing quick and simple, without the smudges! There are a handful of factors that make this process so quick and effective:

  1. A piece of high-quality, optically clear polished glass. If you have a crummy piece of glass or easy-to-scratch plastic, you are destined for a frustrating experience.
  2. Proprietary lightboard illumination: the way we illuminate the writing makes writing glow and smudges remain invisible to the camera.
  3. Markers: every brand and type will be a little different, some markers are more greasy or resistant to being erased. Here we are using the Quartet Neon Markers, which are our favorite and by far the easiest to erase. Learn more about lightboard markers.
