CX5100 Disable active video switching possible?

Recieved an interested question from a user today i am trying to confirm an answer on. Is it possible to turn off the camera tracking feature on a Polycom CX5xxx series unified conferencing camera?
One of our users feels she could get more use out of hers if she could lock the camera in one place and not have it hunting around based on the mic pickup. I did not find anywhere in the Control Panel software nor the configration parameters section any ability to do this, so I am assuming the answer is no, but trying to confirm before speaking with our user about it.
