Cx5500 Skype for business video conference

Hello
I have a Cx5500 installed with the last firmware. It configured with an Office365 account. I connected. I can find all the contacts of my organization. But can't make a video conference. I can only make audio conference. When I connect the Cx5500 via USB to a computer with Skype for business client everything is working fine.

Thanks for your help.

Hello @Patsky,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

This is how the CX5500 works.

 

Its a mix between a Conference Phone (Audio only) and a USB Camera via the USB connection.

Hi Steffen Baier,

 

I'm well aware that this is an old Thread. But I need a bit more clearance about this topic.

 

You are saying, that it isn't possible to make a Skype for Business Video Call without a PC connected to the USB Port. Ist that correct?

 

Sincerely,

Hello @s.gruber,

 

welcome to the Polycom Community.
The original reply already outlines this. In addition this is documented in the Data Sheet >here<

 

Video/Voice Part:

  • Easy to deploy and use An intuitive design with full plug-and-play functionality makes it easy to deploy and use the Polycom CX5500. With little or no training, anyone with a laptop that has Skype for Business can walk into the room and simply plug the CX5500 unified conference station into their PC’s USB port and start sharing voice and 360-degree panorama video. Control, invitations, and content sharing are through the familiar Skype for Business user interface your users already know and use every day. Removing the challenge of learning a remote control device means fewer support calls and no need for “in room” support from the IT department to get video conference calls started.

 

Audio Part:

 

  • Audio quality matters The Polycom® CX5500 unified conference station features Polycom’s legendary audio bringing the industry’s best voice quality to your Skype for Business meeting with a dynamic range of 160Hz to 22,000Hz. Polycom® HD Voice™ and a microphone range of 20 feet (6 m) means everyone in the room can be clearly heard, even at the end of the table. Optional microphones extend the range even further, if needed. Customers can also make voice-only calls from a CX5500 when it is registered as a SIP phone to either a Skype for Business/Lync server or an IP PBX, eliminating the need to for IT to install a separate audio conference station in the room.
