# Sharing any type of content

With TrueConf Room, you can show content from the source selected in settings, which can be:

  • Capture card (via HDMI)

  • Any of the cameras connected to the device (including a PTZ camera)

  • NDI stream.

The display device is selected in the settings at the path Settings → Video → Default content source.
