We recently replaced our legacy Polycom HDX systems throughout our organization with SRS v2 using the Logitech SmartDock in all our conference rooms.   It is working well but there are a couple annoyances that I'm hoping someone else has solved:

 

1) The TV in the conference rooms get filled up with all the remote audio or skype caller tiles even though they are not presenting video.  The impact is that the people who are using video are so small on the TV that it's hard to see them.  Is there a way to hide the tiles for the callers who are not presenting video?

 

2) One of the features everyone misses from the Polycom solution is that the system would switch focus to whichever remote caller is currently speaking.  So if someone in the room you are in is currently speaking, then the TV would show all the remote sessions as tiles, but when one of the remote sessions starts talking then their tile would be zoomed in.

 

If we could address these 2 things, the user perception would go from "good" to "great"!   Appreciate any thoughts on how to solve.

 

thanks!
