CX5000 HD Quick Question

Hi! I was wandering to buy some CX5000 HD to put at our meeting rooms in my company but we dont use Lync. Does anyone knows if this works on Skype or how could i use it without Lync?

 

Thanks so much for the response!

Re: CX5000 HD Quick Question

Hello Puente,

 

the CX5000 like the CX5000 HD are both optimized for usage with the Microsoft OCS / LYNC server and therefore certain features like the panoramic view are only available to the OCS / LYNC Client.

 

Using this with a third party Software like Skype (even this is provided by Microsoft) therefore may not be able to use all the features applicable to the LYNC client.
