Hi Polycom Support, and community.
Over time, the use-case for one or more of our many Polycom Cameras has changed. We now need to only use half of it's potential 360 degree viewing angle.
Our clients no longer use a circular table, but rather a half table, but we still have a perfectly functional webcam worth thousands of pounds which shows a un-neccessarily huge viewing angle of the far wall. Can this be amended?
Our current solution is to buy a 100 pound good quality Microsoft webcam, and sit this on top of your own huge, 360 degree multi-directional-audio, which frankly feels like an absolute waste of the kit we've purchased.
Any ideas you can provide to help? Any suggestions you can pass on to the developers to include a tickbox in the associated software? We WANT to use your kit and recommend it, but just can't right now.
Hello @Purnellster ,
Welcome to the Poly Community.
The CX5500/CX5100 and the previous CX5000 or Roundtable are originally based on a design by our Partner Microsoft.
The design was very specific and asked for a 360-degree camera and this is what the CX5500 and CX5100 are.
To my personal knowledge, there is no further feature development on this product and any request like this would need to be a feature request as outlined here:
