Introducing Cisco Webex Room USB

The Cisco Webex Room USB is controlled with a remote control or direcly through your software client. It provides a great video and audio experience in meetings, with features such as automatic noise cancellation and best overview. You can also share presentation locally by connecting your Room USB to your laptop with an HDMI cable.

Make A Call

Connect your computer to the USB-C socket of the Room USB with the USB cable. The Room USB supports HD1080p video.

From your computer, open your calling client settings. In the video and audio parameters, make sure to select the Room USB.




If you want to extend the configuration to include an external monitor with this setup, connect your computer to the monitor in your usual way.

When placing calls using a third-party client, the camera, microphone, and loudspeakers are selected based on the OS or app defaults. You can override these settings.

The camera light indicator is lit whenever the camera is active in order to maintain privacy.

The third-party client controls all other functionality.

Share Content With The HDMI Cable

The Room USB offers 4K local content sharing. Simply connect your computer to the Room USB using the HDMI cable.


Note that sharing is only available outside a call. In order to share during a call, you need to use your calling client.

Wireless Guest Share

You can use Guest share to wirelessly share from your browser to a Cisco Webex Room USB.

Guest share from devices.webex.com allows you to share content wirelessly to any Webex registered room device. You don’t need to download a Webex app or sign-up to a Webex account so it is a great way to collaborate with your colleagues.

As you use Guest share, note the following:

  • Sharing works when the device is idle. When the device is in a call or someone else is sharing, you can’t start a share.

  • Audio plays through your laptop but not through the display screen.

  • Video streams at 1080p at 10 frames per second or 720p at 30 frames per second. Select Optimize for motion and video to ensure the best possible experience.

  • Guest share works on the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

  • Closing the browser or the tab where devices.webex.com is open stops the share.
