A window is defined as an area in the virtual Instant Challenge video solution that shows the video feed from one camera.

In the Challenge, Section II.B.7 should read: “The Podcast portion of the Video Presentation must NOT include any visual elements that enhance the Podcast. This includes, but is not limited to, team members, digital graphics, props, costumes, and backdrops. The only visual elements your team may display during the Podcast portion of the Video Presentation are your team name, Team Number, school/organization, competition level, and/or subtitles that translate or transcribe audible words. Subtitles may include the name of the character and/or team member who is speaking but must NOT include any other descriptive information. If the Appraisers determine that the Podcast portion includes visual elements that enhance the Podcast, your team’s score for V.B.4 will be 0. The Appraisers’ decision is final.”
