Creating a Virtual Lightboard with OBS

I have been doing whiteboard sessions with customers for many years. With all of us working from home (remote work) for a year, one of the things I’ve missed the most is doing whiteboards at customer sites.. It is a hard experience to replicate virtually.

A couple of years back I saw how impressive the use of lightboards can be in virtual meetings. A couple of weeks back I saw one of my co-workers using a lightboard again, and made me think of trying a completely virtual one.

Finally took sometime early this week (late at night) to try things out and figure it our. Excited that I learned how to do it. It has worked really nice with customers (at work) and figured I would share how to do it on my personal YouTube channel.

I finally got the time to create it and do it — here is the video. (sorry about the audio issues – will improve on the next one!)

I know it needs some polishing but it is a start… Hopefully it conveys the basic for you to try!
