Release Notes for Zoom Rooms Android Controller:

Side-by-side app window functionality returns to AMX touch panels

With ZRC 5.9.0+ and AMX G5 Touch Panel Firmware 1.8.53+, users may once again show the ZRC APP inside an app window, side-by-side with AMX control buttons.  This is a reversal of Zoom's previous requirement to run the app full-screen only.  Please note Zoom recommends a minimum app size of 1280x800, and using a width & height significantly smaller than this may affect button & menu placmement within the app.

If your app window is too small and it affects your Zoom performance, please consider showing the app full-screen and implementing Zoom’s “Room Control” functionality:

You can use this feature to either add control buttons to the ZRC app, or simply add a [Close App] button.  This [Close App] button would send a user-defined string back to your NetLinx controller, and when that string is received the Netlinx controller can be coded to send the ^APP- command to your touch panel which will close the app.  This command does not affect an in-progress meeting/call, and will not affect pairing/login status.  Please note you must be using a paid Zoom Rooms account to enable Zoom's Room Controls feature.  Example code is available for download: ZRC with Room Controls.AXW


Modero G5 Touch Panel
Firmware Version 1.8.53 or newer

Installing Applications From an External USB Drive

Load the application (APX files) on an external USB drive and plug the USB drive into the G5 panel.
(USB Drive must be formatted to MS-DOS (FAT32))

Enter the device settings menu, navigate to 'Install Apps from USB', and press 'Open'.
(Settings -> Reset and Update -> App Manager -> Install Apps from USB)

When the 'APX Install' page opens, the root directory of the connected USB drive will be scanned for 
APX files. Once the scan is complete, the UI will be populated with APX files that are valid for the 

This page is divided into two sections: 'UPDATES' and 'INSTALLS'
-'UPDATES' Shows any valid APX files for this device that are updates to currently installed 
-'INSTALLS' Shows any valid APX files for this device that are new installs.

Press the checkboxes on the left hand side to select the apps to update or install.

Once all apps have been selected for installation/update, press the 'Install' button.

Once the 'Install' button is pressed, only the selected items will be visible in the APX Install page. 
The right hand side of each line item will show the progress of the install.

Launching Zoom Rooms App from Panel

The command for launching Zoom Rooms is the same for launching any application on a G5 panel:

 ​"'^APP-left,top,<width>,<height>,[optional window type],<AppName>[,<param list>]'"​

You can find a description of the command and it's parameters in the Modero G5 Configuration and Programming Manual​ located on the AMX website.

Example: “^APP-0,0,1050,800,2,us.zoom.zrc"

In the example, we are positioning the window to the absolute left and top position, making its size 1050x800, and making it a floating, fixed size, non-movable window. In the TP5 file in the provided zip, we do send the command via an event from the button – this can also be done programmatically.
