We are excited to offer the opportunity for you to utilize a Zoom Room for your courses and/or meetings! What is a Zoom Room? A Zoom Room is a software based system which integrates with a classroom's equipment. This gives instructors a way to better coordinate their visual collaboration while utilizing the front ActivPanels, computer sharing, whiteboarding, and annotation resources. This provides an integrated experience for your virtual, blended, or face-to-face meetings.

Sharing the Computer Screen with a Zoom Meeting Started
After you have started your Zoom meeting, you may display the computer by selecting the "share screen" found on the meeting control which is located on the bottom middle of the screen. This opens a window with sharing options. Select "desktop" and "start sharing". Once you are sharing the computer content, the Zoom participants will move to the secondary front panel.

Are you conducting a face-to-face only meeting? To display the computer when you are not hosting a Zoom meeting, tap the "Share Content" icon on the front panel. This opens a window with sharing options.
Camera View Options
Default Camera Setting
When you begin a meeting, the default camera setting is to display the back camera which is located above the two display monitors in the back of the room. The view of that camera is set to option 2 which is a wide view of the room.

To change between cameras, click the three dots in found on the meeting control which is located on the bottom middle of the screen.

Network/Zoom Room Disconnect
If you receive a message that you cannot connect to the Zoom Room or a "connecting to the internet" message that won't go away, Try "retry/reconnect". If this does not work, contact someone in the Hub (WH 129) or Tech Help Desk (257-5300). This sometimes requires rebooting the Zoom Room computer which is located in the ceiling.

If you walk in to a large orange screen or a black screen with the words "No Signal," you need to change the source being viewed.

Select HDMI 2 by using the arrows and then confirm by clicking the button that says "menu."
