What is the maximum number of people (squares) that can be shown at the same time? Is there a way to pick who occupies the squares on screen. We are using RealPresence Group 500 with dual 60" 4K monitors.
I think it is 6 with RPG 500 and 8 with RPG 700. You need to buy MP license separately.
Correct answer, there are some controls for the layouts under the System Settings > Call Settings > Multipoint Mode.
You can refer to the Admin Guide for more details, see "Set a Multipoint Viewing Mode"
Of course, if you are connecting pt-t-pt to a bridge or MCU, that device will control the layout being delivered to the endpoint. External MCU's can provide a continuous presence layout such as 5x4, 20 squares with 20 different endpoints' video.
