ZOOM: Using Zoom Rooms

Tags Zoom


Most of our conference rooms with videoconferencing capabilities are set up as Zoom Rooms, which have a computer to run the Zoom meeting. You can still share content such as a PowerPoint presentation or documents from your laptop in a Zoom Room.

Some of the larger rooms such as Crying Wolf and the AIRC Gathering Place have multiple cameras. Select ZoomPC on the room control panel to bring up the Zoom Room, then tap the Cameras button to move to the camera control screen. Select which camera to show and adjust the view with the arrow and zoom in/zoom out buttons.

Use the Zoom Room control panel to control the Zoom Room once it is up on the monitor.

  1. Tap Home on the Zoom Room controller
