One of the challenges with Zoom Rooms and Microsoft Teams Rooms is that neither vendor makes hardware. Hardware vendors like HP-Poly, Neat, Jabra, and Logi solve this with appliances. The first ones were simple Android-based bars, but room systems continue to get more complex.

It requires multiple cameras and multiple streams from the cameras and uses AI in both the room and in the cloud to determine which video is the best to present to remote participants.
