7985G IP Phone + CallManager

Can we make multipoint (more than 1 video call) using 7985G Video IP Phone registered on CallManager without Video Conference Bridge (MCU) or do we need MCU to make MP video call and Point to point calls can be made using CallManager.

How many parties 7985 will display on screen without MCU or with MCU, registered on CallManager.


Re: 7985G IP Phone + CallManager

you need an MCU to provide for multi-conferee video conferences.

with the MCU you can 'brady bunch' all conferees on the 7985G by pressing the VidMode softkey while in a video conference.

without an MCU, you can only get a 'video call' between two parties. each party can see the other participant.

(you can use PIP to get a mini window but this is only to view the other parties view of you)
