Intelligent Proximity Capabilities and Support

From testing the Cisco Proximity app, the customer has the following questions:

  • Proximity app is currently acting like an extension of the touch panel.  Are we looking at the ability to restrict user capability to only view and present content?  Preference is the ability to enable/disable remote call control (add participants/end meeting, etc.) from within the codec system settings from an administrator.
  • While sharing content from WebEx, they noticed that the image quality on the app was out of focus and pixelated.  If attempting to zoom in on the text document, the words were not visible.  Is there a way to get higher resolution view sent to app?
  • In the Q&A, there was a table of endpoints supported with maximum connections.  They want to reconfirm max connections and understand if this is a hardware limitation and if the numbers of connections can be exceeded.
    • 8 devices for SX10/20 and MX200/300 G2
      • Is SX10 presentation sharing still planned for 7.3?
    • 30 devices for SX80 and MX700/800
  • Are we looking at supporting the ability for a meeting organizer to enable/disable proximity on a per-meeting basis?
  • When or will ever the C-series codecs support Proximity?

Thanks!

Currently, only iOS and Android versions are available.

The Windows and Mac applications are not yet released. They will be released together with the next major version of endpoint software.

When released, the desktop application will be linked from www.cisco.com/go/proximity

Hi thubui,

Hi thubui,

1) Yes, we have been looking at restricting capabilities. We have not yet committed to do so, but it's high on our list of potential improvements in the app.

2) The app recieves the resolution visible on the endpoint. If there is packet loss in the link between WebEx and TelePresence, you might get blur/H.264 artifacts. This will be even more visible when zooming in on the image. Please check if it is possible to reduce packet loss on the link. We are working on improving media resilience for presentation sharing across the solution, though.

3) The more devices you connect, the slower the response will be per connected device. We have set limitations that we think makes a decent compromise between latency and number of supported users. This number *could* be increased, but it would impact the user experience due to higher latency. We currently plan to stick to 30 and 8 devices. We also aim to support presentation sharing from SX10 by TC 7.3.

4) Sort-of ;) It is tricky to identify the meeting organizer without adding a lot of overhead with scheduling, passwords etc. The overall design goal for Proximity is to make it simple and transparent. However, some meetings might not want the feature, so the idea is to allow anyone in the room to disable proximity pairing on a per-meeting basis. This would be a feature on the Touch 10 control panel.

5) C-series does not (and will not get) support for Proximity. (It is testable, and available as an experimental feature. However - due to the media architecture in the C-series platform, we can not fully support the solution here).

From testing the Cisco

From testing the Cisco Proximity app, I have the following questions:

  • We are testing the Proximity app for the iOS and the app for Windows and Mac.  The desktop app sees the SX10 but it says that content sharing is not enabled on the SX10.  Our SX10 is running 7.2.1.  Is this version capable of content sharing? If not, do you know when it will be able to content share. This is a huge requirement for our company moving forward if we are to start buying these SX10 units.
  • While connected to a Zoom meeting or Webex, the image quality on the app is out of focus and pixelated. Is there a way to get higher resolution on sharing?

 

Thanks.

Hello Henrik - I've heard

Hello Henrik - I've heard that the production release of Intelligent Proximity will be out soon and will be an entirely new code train. If we are to upgrade to this new release for Intelligent Proximity support, are you able to highlight some of the new features that will be included in this new release of code?

 

For example, does the administrator now have the ability to only enable content sharing and not remote control of the system?

 

Also, does this version of code intend on supporting content sharing on the SX-10's?

 

Thanks,

Brian
