'Carry over' camera connection

I built an app where several screens have a camera input [from the same camera]  when I switch from one screen to the next one, the camera becomes momentarily unavailable and then appears in the new screen. It looks like Screen 1 has to release the camera before Screen 2 sees it as available. Is there a way to 'carry over' the camera session between screens?

 

Thanks

Hi @JaguarMonkey ,

No - a camera can only be used by one control at a time - I would not imagine the delay would be long though.

Yea.  Thanks @WarrenBelz .  I was trying to do a hack where I am using my device as a portable presentation unit where the backgrounds are the slides and my camera was showing in a corner so that when I share my screen I am in the presentation.
