Enable Content Camera on Desktop Client
The Content Camera feature is only available for Microsoft Teams Rooms (MTR) currently, it would be great to have this feature enabled on the Desktop client.
Yes absolutly, this would be very nice and dose make it possible with lower cost and also open up for make it possible on the Go.
Yes, definitely add content camera to desktop client (it has a pc running already for the processing requirements)

Any camera should be able to be a content camera!

This could be a key feature used in distance learning, online or hybrid courses. Setting this up to be used at home or in a limited spaced classroom, but visible/record-able for all online would be amazing.

I too think using the mobile as a content cam makes sence: The office lens app has existed for years and the (back side) camera on the mobile is usually of good quality

Yes, we need this as well
Allso content camera via app on ipad og smartphone.
Today I can log into both PC and phone with the same account simulatiosly, but I can only stream one videoimage.
This would be great, I would finally be able to teach and explain things to my team sharing my whiteboard from home.

It would be amazing to have this in the desktop client. With COVID19 we do much more sharing from home, where it is not practical to have a full Rooms setup.
Yes, especially at this time when so many of our colleagues and customers are working from remote and home locations, having a content camera as an option on the desktop client would be of great value.
As a manager who talks best with a marker and white-board, having a content camera would improve things tremendously.

I have a client that wanted an low cost solution to share whiteboard content in online meetings. They liked the content camera idea as a few webcams can be purchased and booked to individuals when needed, but since a content camera does not work via a desktop client. They are moving to an alternative solution like Rocketbook Beacons (https://getrocketbook.com/products/rocketbook-beacons).

I agree this would be an amazing feature! Agree with Darrell often have to point the laptop at my whiteboard
I really like this feature. It would be great if it was built into the #MicrosoftTeams desktop client so it was available to more people. I have attended multiple meetings when the presenter pointed their laptop at a real whiteboard and picked up a crusty, dying red marker.
