A very interesting video was just published by Microsoft Office 365 on YouTube.
It shows Teams video conference (Teams Rooms) that shows a physical whiteboard being displayed in the video. This looks very useful and already I have users asking about it.
When will this feature be available, assuming it's not already since I can find it in our release of Teams, and how is this feature activated?
Here's the video I'm talking about:

@Paul Shadwell it's coming soon, not released yet. It's a feature of Teams Rooms, these are dedicated devices that you install in your rooms with cameras, speakers and microphones to make the room work. This feature will need an additional camera (just a web cam I understand) but pointed towards the board. All the specific requirements and limitations are not yet known.

That’s not at all made clear in the video. We actually use the cameras but not the hub. So no problem for that but it would be great that it said when the feature would be available so I can answer my user’s questions.
Or better still wait till after release.
