The stage backdrop is a static banner image shown on the Airmeet Stage. It is displayed when a session is in progress and is visible to all attendees.
In Airmeet, you can add as many Stage Backdrops as you want for your event.

1.2. Design guidelines
Create backdrops according to the specified design guidelines shown below.
Optimize your backdrop design for the right dimensions: 1868px wide and 1328px tall, which includes a visible area of 1868px X 280px where you can put your event details, sponsors' logo, branding elements, etc., as per your convenience.
If your uploaded image is smaller than these dimensions, Airmeet will stretch it to cover the stage -- making it look blurry.
Maximum file size 5 MB. The guidelines can be downloaded here.

Step 1. Go to the "Events dashboard" and click on the "Branding Tab."
Step 2. Select the "Stage Backdrop" tab from the left-hand side.
Step 3. Click the Upload backdrop image button and select the file from your local computer. The recommended file format should be JPEG/PNG, and the size limit is 5 MB.
Step 4. Previewthe backdrop image to see how it will look during the event. If the preview looks good, click onSave Backdrop.
Step 5. The backdrop will be added to the event. Choose the Set as the default backdrop option if you want it to be applied by default on all sessions.

Note: Only the session host/co-host can change the stage backdrop.
The stage backdrop can be changed from both the backstage and the live stage. Let's understand how to do the same.
Step 1. Hover over the three dots menu and click on the update stage backdrop option.
Step 2. Select the image file from the pop-up that opens. This contains the list of all backdrops that were uploaded from the dashboard. Click on the Update backdrop option in the pop-up.
Step 3. If you want to remove the backdrop, choose the "Remove backdrop" option, which removes the backdrop and shows the output without the backdrop.
4. Points to keep in mind
Session recording will have the backdrop post-processing.
While using the stage backdrop, you won't get a 16:9 aspect ratio as it auto-compresses the ratio to 4:3.
Only the session host/co-host can change/remove the backdrop from backstage.
The session host/co-host can change the backdrop during ongoing sessions.
Stage backdrop can be applied for an RTMP-based session (Recommended layout: solid color or basic non-text design)
