I’m in higher education AV design and we are exploring Zoom Rooms as a new experience for our end users who are heavy Zoom Users. We are testing it out in our IT conference room and we don’t run the Zoom Rooms application full time in the conference room- we have it installed and a few of our Zoom power users who are testing it out for us will launch it manually and then use it with the iPad controller as designed.
We also have an Extron Control System in this room and I’d like to start exploring the partnership between Zoom and Extron. After looking over the GCP driver communication sheet and the ZR-CSAPI documentation, I’m wondering if it is possible to connect to the computer over SSH and issue a command to actually launch Zoom Rooms. The GCP driver allows for a custom command to be sent, so ideally I can add a button on our control system that would fire Zoom Rooms up instead of the end users needing to go through the Windows start menu to launch it.
My guess is that the SSH server doesn’t run until after Zoom Rooms is already up and running.
