Multipoint videoconference problem

We have in our company(ISP) a videoconference network that consists of 35 videoconference points connected to a central point consisting of a Cisco 7200 gatekeeper, a Cisco IP/VC 3540 videoconference system with a MCU MC06A. The equipment from these 35 points are 23 ViaVideo II systems, 10 PictureTel 550 video systems and 2 PictureTel 600 Series video systems(from 2 main points). Ok. What is the problem? A videoconference session is taking place with all these 35 points connected(without problems). Surposing site number 2(a ViaVideo) is talking with one main site(a PictureTel 600) but suddenly a crashing noise appears(for less than 1 second) and video switchs to another site, for example site number 24. We see that site number 24 doesn't have his microphone connected. After some minutes it happens again and video switchs to another site(only video - audio is muted at that site). Something it's going wrong. All sites have good connection between them.

Any idea what's the matter? Or where I can found exact information about this?

Re: Multipoint videoconference problem

There are 2 modes in which the video switching happens. One does slow switching and the other does fast switching. They are:

SpeakSlct_Fast - Selects fast video-switching mode. This mode is useful when fast and interactive

video switching is required. This is the default mode for the MCU.

SpeakSlct_Slow - Selects slow video-switching mode. This mode is useful when background noise causes

a high level of false video switching sequences. This mode will decrease the number of false

switching events causing the switch to be less sensitive.

You can try one of these modes as per your requirements.

Hope this helps.

Re: Multipoint videoconference problem

Thanks, irisrios. I will try tomorrow. One question: Do I need to execute these commands every time after a reset of the Cisco IP/VC 3540? For example any options modified in the configuration on the Administrator page can be uploaded in the memory just clicking on "Upload". But in this case I'm not sure that IP/VC will remember the new settings after executing the commands to modify switching modes.

Re: Multipoint videoconference problem

irisrios, I tried "SpeakSlct_Slow" and didn't help. Same troubles.

All the configurations - gatekeeper, Cisco IP/VC 3540 are ok. No problems.

I searched many potential sources of the problem but no result. Do you have any idea? Or anybody?
