When I plug my mac to  our Conferencing system I see the laptop has recognize the dual monitors, but  will only display black on monitors, Audio in the other hand works great.

Hello @ChrisD ,

This ensures the questions having to be asked are limited and any new or follow up post contains the right amount of details to ensure any voluntary participant within the community does not spend additional time chasing basic information.

Jul 12, 2016 Question:What is HDCP?

Resolution: HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection to prevent copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across connections as explained in detail => here <=


As you stated that other HDMI sources have no issue I would assume this is related to the Mac.


The next step would be opening a ticket with Polycom support.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
