Using Yealink CP960 as a Zoom Room Controller, Speaker, and Microphone Follow

Overview

You can configure a Yealink CP960 to act as a Zoom Rooms controller, microphone, and speaker. Zoom and Yealink have partnered to provide this combined solution by embedding the Zoom Rooms controller software in the Yealink CP960 firmware.

The Yealink CP960 allows you to easily adjust the volume and mute/unmute the microphone. You can also start or join a meeting, start a presentation, and control the camera on the CP960 directly.
