We would like the ability to disable Video chat on a number of shared workstations. When users log on to their normal workstation they should be able to use video but when they log on to our shared workstations in a secure area we don't want it as an option. Is this possible? Are there several methods?  What have you found to work best?

Jacob Stimpson : Update the policy in Shared workstations to restrict the Skype for business video. So that user cant use the video in the shared workstation.

I will try to disable that setting but I thought that was for video based screen sharing such as sharing content with someone while in a chat or meeting.  It was not clear that those settings will affect direct video chat when not sharing content.

This might help - https://ucgeek.co/2014/09/disable-telephony-in-lync-2013-client/. Haven't tried in the SfB 2016 client but sure it will work.
