The Zoom Room application on your mobile device allows you to access the Zoom Room you are in, start or join a meeting, and even control the Zoom Room yourself without having to interact with the Zoom Room Controls tablet , except maybe tap it to wake it up.

The Zoom Rooms can be configured to meet the needs of your business and help you collaborate in a variety of ways. Not only can you share HD video and audio, but in addition to HD video and audio sharing, you can also share wireless content, whiteboard, chat, and even screen share with a variety of different devices.

To display an image or video as the background for the Zoom Room meeting, you can use the Virtual Background feature, which allows you to display an image or video as the background. Whether you’re in front of a green screen or not, Zoom can tell that when you’re in front of a green screen, there’s a difference between you and the background of your image.

Depending on the device you’re using to join the meeting, you can use the Virtual Background feature either with a green screen behind you or without one. Using both requires more system requirements, but using the virtual background without green screen will give you a much better experience.
