Instant Connect Far End Camera Control (FECC) enables users to control PTZ enabled cameras in meetings, allowing hosts the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom the cameras in remote locations on supported devices. Hosts joining through the desktop can control up to 3 cameras simultaneously, and hosts joining through mobile will be able to control one camera at a time.
In an Instant Connect session, participants with cameras that are FECC-enabled are denoted with the following icon:
Once you’ve started an FECC session, the remote camera controller functions just like any other physical remote camera control.
TIP: Hovering over any control will display a tool tip.
The following controls are available:
- Move up
- Zoom in
- Move left
- Move right
- Move down
- Zoom out
- Stop controlling the camera
- Pop out the control panel into a separate window (or return it to its docked location)
FECC configuration notes
Before using FECC keep the following points in mind:
- Once FECC is activated, the host controlling the camera can’t change the video layout until the FECC session is stopped. FECC session use the Equal meeting layout.
- Far End Control Mode should be set to On for the device (On is the default).
- If the device is running a version of RoomOS earlier than 18.104.22.168, see the instructions for disabling Speaker Track Mode below.

For RoomOS versions earlier than 22.214.171.124, you’ll need to disable Speaker Track Mode. While Speaker Track Mode can be turned off directly on a device during a meeting by a participant, we recommend disabling it permanently in Control Hub.
To disable Speaker Track Mode:
Login to Control Hub https://admin.webex.com with your administrator account and select Devices in the left-hand nav.
Select an FECC-enabled device (see the list of FECC supported devices).
Select All configurations.
Search for Speaker Track Mode.
Change the Configuration Value from Auto/On to Off, and then select Save.
Repeat these steps for all devices you want to use for FECC.
