Video endpoint software that connects to HDX8000 by IP address only

We have an HDX8000 configured with a public IP address to connect to, no UC gateway. We want to be able to use it with people outside of our organization that we might speak to once this way and providing licenses for RealPresence or PVX to such people is not feasible. Are there open-architecture video endpoint viewer programs/apps that can connect to the HDX8000 by IP address alone?

 

Thanks.

Not sure of the use case completely.  You seem to indicate this is a temporary use for the far end (you say 'might speka to once').

 

If that is the case they can use the RP Desktop or RP mobil.  The RP Desktop is free to use for the first 30 days.  From the download site:

Polycom RealPresence Desktop is an easy-to-use video collaboration app that provides HD quality audio, video and content sharing for PC users. Unlike similar proprietary applications, RealPresence Desktop is standards based and extends your organization's existing video-enabled network, giving end users the same high quality experience from within the office or while on the road.

 

Click the links below to download the trial RealPresence Desktop app for Windows or Mac OS X. The trial will run fully functional for 30 days. After the trial period, simply register to a CMA Series, RealPresence Resource Manager or purchase a license from your authorized Polycom reseller to activate.

 

Otherwise any application that supports the standard for video (h.323 / h.320, ect) will interoperare with the HDX product.  The supported standards are on the back side of the datasheet available from www.polycom.com.
