It would be good a way to pin a user as maximized on video call
When in a conference call, currently is not possible to pin the video to be maximized allowing to focus just in one person.

Pinning certain camera would be extremely useful for first line workers. We want to show particular machine/vehicle etc. which is shown in the camera and discuss about it throughout the whole participants.

Hoping to see some progress with this. With several customers leveraging American Sign Language Interpreters for meetings, the ability to pin 1 or more attendee video windows is incredibly important. This should be considered an accessibility blocker.
This is a related issue - with many more votes! Might want to vote on it there too. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32816857-add-better-support-for-full-room-cameras
When using our Meeting Owl camera (https://www.owllabs.com/meeting-owlc). I'd like to be able to select the user running this camera as the main window so that I can see everything in the room at the highest fidelity available.
I'd imagine that clicking in the 4-pane view would make the pane I clicked full-screen.
We had a Teams video call with a main conference room camera that was displayed in full, but when remote participants joined, the main conference room feed was truncated to half the screen and the remote participant icon took up the other half of the screen. Please create a way to select which video feed to maximize.
With the new 'Live Events' feature that is now out, I find this feature more important (I also wanted this feature for Skype Broadcast as well). We would like to use Teams to connect remote offices and employees during our "all company" meetings, but without the ability to 'spotlight' a single video stream at a time we would end up with the video grid, which would not work for this kind of scenario.

Agreed, we use this webcam in our conference room: https://www.owllabs.com/. When Teams resizes the video, you can no longer see the full room.
