7937G + Cisco Unified Video Advantage?

Looking to do a light/grassroots/inexpensive pilot of the CUVA solution in a very small conference room.  Traditional telepresence is overkill for this, so I was looking at CUCM options.  Is it possible to make these two work together?  I wasn't sure how CUVA actually linked up to the IP phone, but assumed it's either based on User ID linked to the device, or by the PC port on the phone.  The latter wouldn't work because the 7937 doesn't include a switch like the 7900 series IP phones, and the former wouldn't work because the PC running the software logs on as different users throughout the day.  I'm unable to find out just how this app actually links up with a physical phone.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

CUVA uses the Cisco Audio Session Tunnel (CAST) protocol between the PC with USB camera and phone which requires the PC running CUVA to be directly connected to the PC port on the phone to work.

7937G + Cisco Unified Video Advantage?

Thanks for the detailed info.  It appears that the references to video on the product page for this device were copy/paste fro other phone models then.  I didn't get my hopes up, as if they did support it on this device, it'd eat at the low end of their telepresence market.
