Has anyone ever connected two cisco quadcams to a single Webex Room Kit Plus?
We have a wide, but shallow space where the 80 degree FoV of the Quadcam is not wide enough to capture the entire audience.
The client has suggested using two Quadcams...
I do not think this will work. The Quad Cam need 2 HDMI connections and the Plus only has 2 input ports for video.
The Room Kit Pro might work but I am not sure that it would have things set to be able to switch cameras "intelligently" as Speaker track/presenter track are able to do.
The Webex Room Kit Plus combined with the Quad Camera uses a single HDMI connection as per the camera guide below:
The Webex Room Kit Plus admin guide states that the device can support up to two cameras - but doesn't state whether it could be another Quad Camera.
My assumption is that it's not going to work, but I need something more definitive in order to go back to the client.
No codec, including the Pro, supports more than a single Quad Cam Areay or SpeakerTrack 60. I’m afraid you will need to either pick a zone for coverage or use a Precision 60 camera from the corner to get an overview shot.
The only way to get multiple SpeakerTrack cameras is to have a second codec, configure one of the outputs to be the camera self view, connect that output to the input of the other/primary codec, and use a DSP along with an A/V controller to switch camera input selection on the primary codec based on which side of the room is talking. This is fairly common in divisible rooms but would be quite the hardware investment for a single static room.
