We started rolling out VC240s in RADVISION, and just a few days after I took the picture of the monitor with the oh-too-many-cameras, it’s time for an updated picture of what my colleague now has on his desk:
Yes, this is not an optical illusion: he now has 4 different cameras mounted on his screen.
What you can actually see on the screen is the use of 3 of these cameras in a single MCU conference using SCOPIA Elite:
- Top right corner images are a picture-in-picture layout that the VC240 monitor itself supplies. You can see there the video coming from the MCU to the VC240 terminal.
- The large screen in the middle is the SCOPIA Desktop client, opened in the call as well.
- On the right side, below the picture-in-picture view, there’s a small window. This one is the video coming from the Cisco VT Advantage, which shows the remote video on the PC, while doing the voice call from the Cisco phone.
While I wouldn’t recommend this setup as a reasonable one, I must say that now the only question left is: why the 4th camera?
