“Camera content” sharing is coming to Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams Rooms provide the ability to share a video stream from a content camera. A content camera is a second camera connected to a Microsoft Teams Room PC that is used to bring additional content to a Teams meeting. While the content camera can be thought of as a camera 2 for Teams meetings and can be used to focus on a different topic or view of the presenter.

On the Microsoft 365 roadmap, Microsoft announced that they are also bringing this feature to the Microsoft Teams desktop client.

Microsoft writes:

Microsoft Teams: content from camera

With “Content from camera” in Teams, you can share content from physical artifacts such as whiteboards and documents in a high-quality and readable way during meetings. All you need is a laptop or PC with a built-in camera or a USB camera attached. Teachers can also share content directly from a document camera.

Microsoft has a special whiteboard sharing party trick when sharing camera content, where they prevent the presenter from closing the content on the whiteboard by making it semi-transparent.

Hopefully, this feature will make it to the desktop version as well.

Microsoft expects to deliver global camera sharing content to the Teams Desktop app in September 2021.
