Connect in-room cameras and microphones to Zoom meetings without the use of an additional device.
Zoom Rooms include a touch control panel, camera(s), microphone(s), and speakers built into the classroom. This setup allows instructors to connect to Zoom meetings without the use of an additional device (e.g. a computer or tablet). Additionally, the in-room camera(s) and microphone(s) provide a better capture of the activity in the classroom for remote participants. Remote participants can be displayed on in-room screens along with screen share.
Note that a Zoom Room is different from a standard Zoom meeting in that a Zoom Room is a dedicated full room setup whereas a Zoom meeting can be conducted either using a Zoom Room or from anywhere using your own device.
Use Case and Benefits
Improved communication between in-room and remote participants using dedicated cameras, microphones, and speakers throughout the room.

Accessing the Technology
