Jakarta: The name Webex may still be unfamiliar but this Cisco-made application has the same function as Zoom which offers features video conference. Webex itself is more often used by professionals or corporations.
Now Webex provides new features that were originally provided by Zoom first. They announced that now Webex has a virtual background feature. Is a function virtual background?
If you do video conferencing usually the condition on the back of the user can be caught on a laptop camera. For example, you use the Zoom or Webex application in the bedroom or dining room.
These conditions may be messy so uncomfortable when seen by the other person. So it takes a photo or background image to close it.
Virtual background can make the condition closed through an image that will appear in the Zoom application screen. The pictures vary starting from a workspace and landscape images.
Quoted from The Verge, now Webex applications provide options virtual background which has been prepared in it. This is somewhat left behind because Webex is a video conference application that was around long before Zoom was popular.
Webex was founded in 1995 and was bought by Cisco in 2007 with a value of USD3.2 billion. Cisco itself is an internet network infrastructure solutions company.
But since the Covid-19 pandemic struck, the application video conference increasingly popular. Zoom is much more popular than other applications that have been around for a long time, the reason is that their application is easier to use and free. Different from Webex, which is only popular among corporations or business people and paid.
