My company sells a TON of Zoom rooms. For us you just can't beat how quick and painless the deployment is, while maintaining such a huge feature set. Personally, when I started in the business, I always was under the impression the future was soft codecs. Zoom rooms is exactly that, but optimized for a room as opposed to running a webex client on a PC connected to a screen. Zoom rooms hits just about all the points you mention. I would be wary about trying to switch cameras within software though. Sometimes that can hang the system, so I'd recommend a switcher and HDMI to USB. You would lose the ability to control camera PTZ within Zoom though (though with the development of the API this could probably change in the near future). Audio hardware can range from a Jabra to 2 Tesira servers with 40 gooseneck mics. Audio transmission quality is topnotch. O365 calendar integrates painlessly. We even got fully on prem to work, though it wasn't easy getting that info from Zoom. If you want a SIP line you can pay for one from Zoom, or you can use your SIP provider so long as they have 3rd party SIP support. We do a lot of different conferencing systems. But if it were my office I'd go with Zoom Rooms 100%.
We just switched to Zoom. Ease of use, computer audio, and screen share quality are the big selling points. We switched over from WebEx to Zoom and there was an instant quality of life improvement. One of our most challenging users ran a major conference with no training because Zoom is so easy to use.
We use Zoom every day. The Chrome OS Zoom client works well for video conferencing, (video was broken, on a recent update, but is working again). However, the Chrome OS client is crippled compared to the Linux client. I'm not able to use it to chat outside of meetings, not able to invite by contact during a meeting, or schedule meetings within the client. Meetings can be schedule via Zoom's web interface. The Linux client can be installed in the Crostini container, which provides chat and other features, but video conferencing does not work. Also, as far as I've been able to determine, there is not a way to control the sensitivity of external mics on Chrome OS, which has made it difficult to use Zoom on the Pixelbook.
