  • Camera sharing in Zoom Rooms 
    If you have multiple cameras connected to your Zoom Rooms, you can display the video from one camera while sharing content from a different camera. During a meeting, tap the Share Content or Camera button, then choose a camera. This allows two video streams at once from your Zoom Room.
  • Panacast camera preset support 
    You can use the camera preset values for Panacast cameras.

Management Features

  • Simplified Zoom Rooms setup
    After you install the Zoom Rooms software on a Mac or Windows computer, the screen displays a pairing code that you can enter into a Zoom Room controller to automatically connect it to the Zoom Room. In addition, each time you add a room, an activation code is generated, and you can generate an activation code for an existing room on the Zoom Rooms page of the web portal. Enter this activation code on the Zoom Room controller to register the device without the need to sign in with administrator credentials. The activation code is included in the table of room information for each page in the Location Directory.
  • LED enclosure integration
    You can see the status of a Zoom Room on a supported LED enclosure for your iPad Scheduling Display.

Run the iPad app in Scheduling Display mode and position the tablet directly outside of the Zoom Room to display room availability and allow a room to be be reserved.
    • Display Zoom Rooms availability from outside of the room
      Position an iPad on the wall outside of a Zoom Room. The top portion of the tablet displays information about upcoming meetings scheduled for the room, while the bottom portion prominently shows whether the room is currently occupied or available.

    • Multiple MXL USB microphone support
      When multiple MXL microphones are available in a Zoom Room, they are merged into a single entity and managed together.

Using multiple microphones is particularly useful in large rooms where a single microphone might not detect the sounds from all parts of the room.
  • Zoom Rooms Controller features
