Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hi,

I'm deeply testing the Trio functionalities and trying to use it at his best and I'm struggling with some video quality issues.

While setting up a conference between 2 Trio in 2 different country (one in UK and one in Switzerland) works really well, when I add to the conference a pc with S4B to share some content, the video quality becomes really poor. I don't think is a bandwith issue, since there is a 30/30 UP/DW on both sides and I've tried it also locally in the same LAN (1Gbps) and do the same thing.

What can be the cause of this issue? The sharing content functionality of S4B is one of the best feature of this service, but this is causing a lot of trouble.

 

Someone has encountered the same problem?

 

Thank you

 

Luca

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hello Luca,

 

  • what software Version is your Trio running?
  • what Switch Infrastructure are you running aka Make and Model?
  • If 1GB switches can you change the port for the Trio and the Visual+ to 100FD instead on the Switch End and test again?

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hello STeffen,

 

my Trio is running  5.4.2.5262 FW, main switches are CIsco C2960, but not both the Trio or the pc are under the same switch, since in one of the office it was not PoE, so there is also a Netgear PoE 8 port in the middle.

 

I've setted the Trio port to 100FD, where I have to set the Visual+ port instead? I din't find this setting

 

Thank you

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hello Luca,

This should happen on the Switch end not on the Trio or the Visual+ and is only applicable when they are connected to the Cisco switch directly.

 

I would suggest you work with your Polycom reseller directly to get this escalated to our team.

 

If you struggle to identify them please post me your MAC address so I can look them up for you.

  • Low video resolution in Skype for Business/Lync AVMCU calls.

 

More deatils / description would be nice.

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hello James and all,

we currently do not support simulcast so if any client joins the meeting in a lower quality we will switch back to that.

 

Without any details about the individual issue being raised with Polycom support via a Polycom reseller we are unable to identify the root cause and fix it if it is cause by us or at least note as a known limitation and address possibly in a future release.

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hi Steffen,

 

my problem is that raising a ticket with Polycom throughout the reseller is quite impossibile, since I've bouhght the Trio from an online shop, and yes, the distributor has to help me in theory (Ingram in my case) but I've already tried and they didn't give me any answer. The support process from polycom is quite disappointing from my point of view and this Forum is the best instrument we have to resolve and troubleshooting our problems with Polycom devices.

 

Going back to what you said about simulcast support, what do you mean "if a a client joins the meeting in a lower quality"? lower quality about Network speed, webcam resolution or anything else? There is some settings that can be done on Skype clint to match the Trio standard?

 

Thank you

 

Regards,

 

Luca

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hello Luca,

If you provide me with the MAC of your Trio I can lookup who you need to contact.

 

In regards of the video quality we currently match the lowest participant in the meeting and therefore show lower quality on on the Visual+

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

Hi Steffen,

 

you already did that check for me (thank you) few weeks ago and said my Tiro was sold via Ingram Micro Distribution GmbH. Already tried to contact them and no answer unfortunately.

 

About the lowest quality matched, how can I improve the quality of the client so that it matches the Visual+? In Skype for Business client there is no settings about the quality of the call, I think it does an auto-setting with the possibilities of the HW.

I've connected aother Logitech webcam c930e to this client and attached another Trio as a slave, same local network, so should not be a different quality from Trio to the client.

Re: Real Presence Trio Video quality Issues

I think this is specifically an issue when the multiparty call is hosted on a Lync / SfB AVMCU.

 

I've a Trio at the same site as a RPG500. Point to point / peer to peer the video quality is fine both directions.

 

A multi-party call (3 or more) another RPG500, a Lync / SfB client, even a Lync / SfB client that's only sharing content, results in a drop in video quality from the Trio. Video quality from the RPG500 remains good. Video quality from Lync / SfB clients is good too. Only video quality from the Trio is problematic.

 

I belive this is addressed briefly in the release notes.
