Support for more than 1 USB camera
SRSv2, according to documentation, supported up to 2 USB cameras with switching using the video icon. I would like this feature also in the new Teams Room Systems.

Can anyone from Microsoft respond if this is being evaluated and if so, where in the backlog does it stand?

More than 2 cameras would be ideal. I know there is the content camera, but we have a front room for VC, rear for presenter, and whiteboard (content) cameras.
What a mess... I expected MTR to be better than SRS, now we cant use our training rooms which have two USB webcams...
Hi all, I have tested Yealink MVC940, it can support 9 cameras work together and swtich the layout easily via touch pad, works like a charm in our training room!
We need this operational for the successful implementation of our video conference classes in all our secondary schools! We set up our rooms for this feature only to have it disappear when we swtiched from Skype to Teams.

Our school board has invested in infrastructure for a front and back camera. With 28 of these systems across the board, this is a lot of wasted money. The fact that it was a feature for a few months and then removed is odd to me. Something needs to be done as we are about to install more systems and the question of "do we continue including 2 cameras in the build" is holding up the implementation of these planned room systems.
4 months later, still no update... I have heard H1 2021 touted, but considering this is functionality in the SRS and we are asking for MTR parity functionality this need to be prioritised. It is causing impact to users in multiple orgs and as people return to the office in a hybrid way, having joined up home and office workers is going to be even more crucial.
Please get this scheduled to be fixed asap.
For context....On the 9th April 2021 this request will have its 2 YEAR ANNIVERSAY... this really should not be this difficult to plan for and rectify.

A dual camera support is really needed. The reason for having different camera's is for different room scenarios whereby you may want a specific tracking camera at the rear of room (presentations) and one at the front of room for VC conferences. This is still a key feature requirement and blocking deployment of rooms.

there are a MTR certified solution with multi-camera, Yea link MVC900.
maybe is the solution you need, i tested it personally and works good.
Any update? We have a number of clients with upgraded SRS rooms to MTR with exec and showcase rooms which now the dual camera doesn't work due to the lack of support in Teams. Whilst the number of rooms comparatively is not as large, the rooms impacted are all highly visible and VIP/exec/training rooms.
> Multi camera support (not including content cam)
> Ability to switch cameras mid call
> Ability to rename cameras
> Ability to select which camera is default

When moving to teams this has broken various client meeting rooms that had 2 main cameras under SFB
Jonathan Cuthbertson commented
This already exists. It was added in a firmware update along the line somewhere.
You can connect two USB cameras to MTR and use the video icon to switch between the two USB cameras.
I'm an art teacher. I'd like to show my face and my hands preferably at the same time within a live meeting with students, or at the very least be able to toggle between the two
I would like simultaneous dual camera for presenting a lesson while physically demonstrating, thus the need for a second camera.
Is this possible?

On the Skype for Business MTR (SRS v2) there is the ability to connect 2 video cameras to the room system and users can toggle between the cameras during a call if required. (front and rear camera)
This is a crucial capability for a number of business use cases such as presenting to a remote audience or training sessions to local and virtual participants.
Please enable this feature on the Teams MTR and allow the selection of which should be default and allow renaming of the cameras (for a usable and differing name via settings features).
We have clients loving their SfB MTR, but unable to migrate to Teams MTR as the feature is not currently supported in Teams. thanks!

This works for me. Don't know if there was a recent update that allowed this?
Anyway, my issue is that both cameras display as 'PTZ Pro2'. Not a massive issue, but I'm looking to rename them 'Front' and 'Rear' to make it easy to know which one to select when changing cameras...but this does not seem possible.
Paul Youngberg commented
This would be a great feature to have, please implement. Also, having PTZ control of supported USB PTZ cams within the UI would also be great.
