Zooming opposite members when in meetingroom

Zooming opposite members when in meetingroom

Hi,

 

setup : RMX, 3 x HDX

 

I received the following question.  When all endpoints are dialed into a virtual meetingroom on the RMX, is it possible from one endpoint to remote have the camera zoom another endpoint (assuming remote zoom is allowed)?

 

More detailed :

 

endpoint A

endpoint B

endpoint C

 

all dialed into virtual meetingroom 805555.  User on endpoint A wants to have the camera on endpoint B pan or zoom. He/she takes the remote, and uses the far button and +/- buttons to zoom on endpoint B?

 

I know it works when makeing a point-to-point connection.  But in a virtual meetingroom?

Colleagues,

 

De jure RMX allows to take control of far cameras, for further details take a look at RMX Admin's Guide and search for 'FECC' (Far End Camera Control).

 

De facto I had never seen using this feature during real sessions:

- this can't be recommended for ethical reason

- this is enough complex action for the casual user

 

If it is necessary we usually advice  to use the end point web interface for camera control.

WBR,
Mike
