A NYC area Microsoft 365 expert extols the new Cameo PowerPoint feature in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. The informative article first claims that Cameo integrates a live camera feed seamlessly into PowerPoint presentations, creating a more immersive hybrid meeting and presentation experience.
The author then introduces some interactive features of PowerPoint Live and explains that with the addition of the Cameo feature, the presenter becomes part of the slide itself. She then lists several tips on getting the most out of the new Cameo feature.
“With the release of the new Cameo feature in PowerPoint, Microsoft creates an even more immersive experience for all participants,” stated Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti Technologies. “Presenters can embed a live camera feed into any slide, inserting themselves directly into the presentation.”
Below are a few excerpts from the article, “New Live Camera Feed in PowerPoint Brings In-Person Feel to Hybrid Meetings.”
Cameo as Part of the PowerPoint Live Experience
“Over the past year, Microsoft rolled out PowerPoint Live. With Live, audience members can interact with a presentation without affecting the view for anyone else. For example, a user who comes late to the meeting can navigate back to earlier slides to catch up.”
“As part of PowerPoint Live, the Cameo feature integrates seamlessly into the presentation. For instance, the presenter can appear next to a chart and visually interact with the chart while speaking. Also, as with any image, you can apply formatting and animations to the camera feed. That is, you can crop or resize the image, add borders, apply transitions and so forth.”
Tips for Using the Live Camera Feed in PowerPoint
“Move or resize the cameo – Like any other object, you can click and drag the cameo to a new location on the slide. You can also crop and resize the cameo as needed.”
“Change the shape, borders, and effects – By default, the cameo appears in a rectangle. But you can easily change the object to any of a large variety of shapes. Just click the Camera tab and select Camera Shape. You can also add borders or other effects, such as a glow.”
Availability and Expert Help
As with other new features, Microsoft is rolling out the Cameo feature in stages. Already available in PowerPoint for Windows, Microsoft has just released the feature for Mac and will roll it out for Microsoft Teams in the coming months. To create a presentation using cameos, users must have a Microsoft 365 subscription, though audience members do not need a subscription.
