Camera Control

Zoom Room cameras offer advanced functionalities to enhance your video conferencing experience. We'll delve into two key features: Autoframing and MultiStream. Understanding these features will help you optimize camera controls and elevate your meetings to the next level.


Auto-Framing is an intelligent feature that automatically adjusts the framing of the camera to keep participants centered and visible within the frame. Here's a breakdown of its functionality:

  • Dynamic Tracking: Auto-framing uses sophisticated algorithms to detect and track the movements of participants in the room.
  • Optimal Framing: Based on participant movements, the camera dynamically adjusts its framing to ensure everyone remains centered and visible.
  • Seamless Transitions: Auto-framing facilitates smooth transitions between participants, ensuring a seamless meeting experience.
  • Hands-Free Operation: With Auto-framing, users can focus on their meetings without the need for manual camera adjustments.

MultiStream enables Zoom Room cameras to capture and stream multiple video feeds simultaneously, offering diverse perspectives of the room

Speaker & Microphone Volume

The microphone is near the far end of the table, and is hanging from the ceiling. It is a 360º microphone designed to capture all directions of sound in the room.

To check the audio levels of the microphone, in the Zoom meeting-- hit Settings.

Hit the arrow next to Microphone: EasyUSB Mixer/Amp

Once in the Microphone Settings, feel free to Test Microphone to verify how it sounds.

If you notice any issues with the microphone, please submit a ticket at or give us a call.
