Our goal is to create a distance learning/training ZoomRoom that doubles as a trainer's office.
- The ZoomRoom is controlled by a Logi Roommate and Tap controller, with a PC supplying content (via Power Point) during distance learning "meetings" which is sent via HDMI to the Roommate and then to a large front-of-the-room display.
- It's that PC that must handle all office duties and also supply content (via PowerPoint) for non-distance learning training sessions - meaning no Zoom involved. But that PC/content still has to go through ZoomRoom/Roommate if it is sent to the front-of-the-room display.
I'm testing this non-distance learning scenario by selecting "Share Content" on the Tap controller.
The ZoomRoom home screen is instantly replaced by the extended screen of the PC (this is great). I've thrown a couple of windows onto that extended screen as place holders for a PowerPoint presentation. The Tap controller is displaying prompts with meeting info, volume control, and buttons to Stop Sharing or Start Meeting. I'm hopeful that as long as a meeting isn't started, the PC signal bypasses Zoom and simply displays on the front display.
Is this the best way to set up the PC in the room to present ZoomRoom content, non-distance learning content and act as an everyday computer?
In the non-distance learning set up, will Zoom go into sleep mode, or time-out in some fashion?
Love to see another Roommate user - we think these devices have a ton of potential and with Logitech would sink more time into their development!
To your questions:
1.) Any AV professional (some of us still out here!) will tell you that this is probably not the 'best' way to present non-distance or 'local' content, but if the image quality and degree of latency is fine for you you (should be pretty minimal), this setup is totally acceptable. More 'efficient' AV solutions would mean extra cost for design and implementation, but may not even truly give you a distinguishably better user experience.
2.) The 'Share Now' meeting that is created for local non-distanced sharing will not timeout unless the HDMI signal feeding it does. No sleep mode unless you set one.
