      • Add ability to pan camera

        When the camera attempt to follow too many faces, it ends up not following any. Ability for a user to pan when they want to look would be excellent!

        • Simplify Rollout Steps for O365 + Skype Room v2 Implementation

          Currently the steps are not even correct (they list old Microsoft Azure connect) and the script does not even download. TBH this whole process is conveluted. Why cant an appropriate room with features be added through Exchange Admin console via HTTP (not powershell). I currently will not be recommending this to any of my clients as it seems like an ophaned child, and unfinished/beta. The documentation is light on details, does not work and provides me no faith that its an enterprise product thats ready for the market adoption.

            • Speaker View on SRS

              We'd like for the Skype Room System display to mimic the functionality of the desktop client as far as participant layout options when no content is being shared and offer a voice activated speaker view where the active speaker could be viewed full screen at remote locations.

                • Make all meeting attachments available as content on Surface Hubs

                  Rather than limiting content to PowerPoint why not make all meeting attachments available?

                    • Provide echo cancellation like other audioconferencing solutions

                      We find that remote users hear an echo of themselves in all of our conference rooms, which are fairly standard - TV with webcam on top, using the webcam microphone. The sound from the TV gets picked up by the webcam and sent back across the call, causing an echo on the far end. Other products (like GoToMeeting) are smart enough to detect this echo and not send it back across the line. I think personal Skype have this capability as well.

                      I have worked through the issue with MS support on case number SRX617112793089112ID , if that helps. I…

                        • Hide stage automatically

                          The presentation stage should automatically close and revert the display back to Speaker.
                          Having to keep telling End Users of this is annoying from both an AV and End user point of view

                            • Use both Surface Hub cameras to create one centralized video

                              When Using a meeting room with a Surface Hub, sometimes the meeting is not a presentation och "creative" meeting, but more a discussion och decision meeting.

                              In many rooms a table is placed centrally towards the Surface Hub and either of the cameras will not cover the participants in an optimal way.
                              If using both cameras and with Software combining to one videostream, the picture could be centralized and have wide angle.

                              This could furthermore reduce the scenarios in which an external camera is needed.

                                • In SRSv2, play a sound when you tap or move the volume slider.

                                  This would allow you to confirm that the speaker is working and test the volume before others join so you don't blow everyone's ears out if it's super loud.

                                  • Allow PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) control of cameras

                                    Allow members of a S4B meeting to remotely control cameras with pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) capability so that remote participants can "look around" a large room or zoom in on a person who is speaking. This was possible 10 years ago with Polycom devices and would be great now, especially for larger conference rooms. Ideally, S4B would detect that the camera was PTZ capable and automatically display up/down/left/right arrows and zoom in/out buttons.

                                    • Include URL and PSTN dial in details for Skype meetings started from Surface Hub.

                                      For ad hoc Skype meetings which are started from the Surface Hub, enable the ability to show and share PSTN conferencing (dial in) and meeting connection URL details. So it essentially includes all the details a user would see in a meeting scheduled via Outlook. Share details via email.

                                      • Add the possibility to have 'Favourites' in the Skype Room System console

                                        When having several meeting rooms, and in most cases the participants just wants to call one of the other rooms, it could be convenient to have a 'Favorites' list on the Skype Meeting Room devices

                                        • Add additional events for SRS application

                                          Improve SRS monitoring for analyze device usage - for example event for content sharing started, audio/video started, projection with input HDMI started, etc...
                                          This could be used in OMS monitoring and generating reports.

                                          Thank you!

                                          • Skype Room Systems- Support Interactive Display Functionality for Whiteboarding

                                            We currently have touchscreen interactive displays (Sharp Aquous Boards) in our conference rooms but we would lose the touchscreen functionality of the room's display with the new Skype Room Systems.

                                            Specifically, we would lose the ability to whiteboard or annotate over power point presentation using the room's touch display during Skype meetings if we deployed the new Skype Room Systems. This is huge barrier preventing us from purchasing and deploying the new SRS.
