USB Pass-through Mode for all Webex Room Systems

Due to Covid-19 and the explosive growth of various web conferencing providers, our customers require our larger Webex Room Systems and Kits to be equipped with USB so they can use our great hardware for Zoom, MS Team, etc. The Desk Pro and RK Mini already offer this capability.

    We tried a Room Kit Mini last year and were happy with it, especially with its flexibility. But we needed an extra table microphone, so we ordered the bigger one, presuming all other features would all be the same. Now we experience that there is no USB connection to our NUC for MS Teams and so on and are a disappointed. Please bring this feature to all Room Kits.

    Considering the massive shortcoming of the Webex -> MS Teams CVI, this would be a barely acceptable solution to enable us to joing Teams meetings from our exec conference rooms.

    We installed a Room Kit Mini a few months ago and love it. Great product.

    We just installed our first Room Kit Plus this week. We were surprised that the Plus didn't come with the USB feature that the mini did. The USB pass-through is such a helpful tool with video conferencing and recording presentations. I know about SIP connections and room connectors. We were looking to install around 20 more of them but are a bit hesitant now.

    This should be standard for all newly built devices going forward. If the Room Kit Mini has it as a standard all Room Series should have going forward.

    This is a must do Cisco.... please please PLEASE!
    It would make your more system much more flexible. If a user has an invite to a MS Teams, Zoom or whatever meeting, they simply plug there laptop into the USB (the room instantly becomes their webcam) and connect video (via HDMI) to the screen and hey presto done! Super easy solution

    in this situation it is necessary that the customers ask for it, it's time to have 360 ° of service provided to our business

    We also like the USB mode, and are looking to add this capability to more products.
