Add better support for full room cameras
We use this camera in our conference room: https://www.owllabs.com/. It is designed to show a 360 degree view and also focus on the speaker(s). When Teams does its own resizing of the video, it often cuts off portions of the view from this camera. It would be nice to force teams to always show the full perspective from this camera (even if it is resized smaller). It would also be nice to set this as a "primary" camera in the meeting, so that it is not resized smaller.

I agree, I love TEAMS and I love OwlPro but do not love them together. I would rather not use another platform but may be forced to.

Some users would like the option for narrower aspect ratio as well (don't want to display the whole living room). I believe Zoom accomplishes this with "original ratio" and "HD" (widescreen). If there were 3 options "portrait", "wide" and "superwide" that should satisfy our requirement.
Our architectural/engineering firm is using the images for project documentation and supplementing contract administration. This is really a no brainer for microsoft considering the rapid growth of pano-images in the construction field. We use teams to share info. This is urgently needed.
This would be a very useful feature for commercial and free time use.
I fully agree with all previous comments. How long will the review last ?
So why isnt this a bigger issue yet??
Now all Meeting spaces have a physical distancing requirement, participants must sit apart in the room- this issue where all that is visible is the cropped table in the middle MUST BE FIXED.
Two of our meeting spaces are equipped with Logitech Rally units - "fit to frame" needs to be able to be set on the originating video MS Teams client.
We cannot expect all other users and third parties who join us in a meeting to have to do this each time.
C'mon Microsoft get your act together. Its nearly 2021 and this has been an issue since 2017.
We use a Kandao Meeting webconference cam, and we have the same issue with microsoft teams. we want to force full view for all participant !!!

Polycom CX5500 is considered for a large global utility company. Please help us decide on the investment by enabling panoramic view in Teams. Thank you.
This also applies when dialling in from a mobile device. The person dialling from the mobile appears to be broadcasting full view but to all the participants they are cropped. Its very frustrating. Please fix.

Would be great to have an update since January of last year as evangelists within enterprises are getting embarrassed by shortcomings like these....
How to explain my board after my "sales talk" for the benefits Teams? We replaced Skype for Teams and still waiting and wating for months now.
Yes, my board only had meetings with ... our good-old Polycom CX5000 roundtable camera....
I am also having this issue!!!! I have two rooms and both are doing the same thing... this is a HUGE issue when the Rooms systems are designed for Board Rooms, to see multiple people.
Microsoft you need to fix ASAP
