Hi @Zoomalorian 


Good stuff!


The Rooms and Workspaces Board should be a great place to discuss all features (and the challenges) of the solutions in this areas.


I think rooms and hybrid spaces and collaborative technology are are all a great mix when done right.  Helping people find the right mix, and tuning the right solutions, to provide excellent experiences and productive outcomes is what I am all about! So I am looking to getting more involved in the Rooms and Workspaces Board moving forward.


About Me

I'm Rupert in Dallas, Texas - originally from London, England.  I've lived in the USA for 12 years and have a total of 25 years experience IT & Operations, Telecom and Facilities Management - with a background in Electrical Engineering. I use (and manage) Zoom extensively in collaborative and remote contribution pipelines, including 1080p and using Zoom Rooms and NDI into live Productions and hybrid events. I am a particular fan of integration (being an engineer at heart) in both with hardware and software, physical or virtual. 


I think Zoom Rooms, and even all the Personal Collaboration Devices, are a great way to leverage the versatility and power of Zoom - in environments ranging from large events, right down to Zoom For Home!


I have been a beta tester for Zoom Rooms in the past, I am a Business account holder with Zoom, and I have been a trial user on Zoom Events on OnZoom .  I am also a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers.


I participate in several Zoom-centered technical communities. The Zoom Community being the newest for me. 









Hi Tom;  My name is Richard.  When I want students to sign in and wait for me, I have a picture of an owl that they will see but it is not centred properly.  How do I fix that?


Hi Tom,


I am REQUIRED to use a ZOOM Business license.  I want to use conference room hardware like a rally bar or some other stand alone devise.  I am not allowed to use a ZOOM Rooms license.  Is there a compatible conference room devise or work around?

You may, depending on your situation, be able to utilize a Personal Zoom Room.  You can see the requirements here.  


In the article, it says "You can provision devices for any user in your organization without using any of your Zoom Rooms licenses. However, to enable the optional Personal Zoom Rooms Pro device functionality, a Zoom Rooms license is required."


Hopefully, this works for you.
