Adding a camera via usb/lightning port to use with Mobile app IOS or Android

Can anybody comment on accessing a different camera other than the front or rear cameras through the iphone or android device?  I am looking to either plug in a video device to the ios or android device or access it via bluetooth or wifi and be able to stream the video into the video conference just like the front or rear cameras do.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello MattHumbert,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The Mobile app is just as it is aka using the camera of the device.


The RealPresence Desktop may have an option to detect / select other cameras. Usually the Release Notes should document this.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
