Some info on lighting and color from Brian:
I majored in theater and actually took a lighting design class, so I looked around for some useful webcast info articles: https://blog.inxpo.com/best-practices-for-delivering-a-webcast-with-lighting-webcam-and-mic/
I wouldn’t actually buy this product but they have useful tips: http://viewmelight.com/tips-tricks
This one is slightly more technical: http://www.on24.com/blog/webcast-video-lighting/
The reason for the darker neutral background is that it helps highlight the lighter colored skin and clothing of the well-lit presenter. Note that the light you are using, the skin color of the presenter, and the dominant colors of the presenters wardrobe can all influence which color works best. If it’s possible to try before you buy/paint, I encourage you to do so. (At least keep the receipts for any equipment you buy!)
