Microsoft Lync Room System Updated With A New Feature Called Room PC View

Lync Room View

Microsoft today updated their Lync Room System with June system update. This new update includes all the usual fixes and minor updates, but contains one major new feature called Room PC View. Microsoft says this feature will improve the content capture experience for a computer that is always connected in the Lync Room System. Currently, the LRS content capture feature was originally designed to activate and share the screen when the content capture cable was connected to a laptop, and then deactivate when detached. As some users wanted to hard-wire the content capture cable connection to an in-room, always connected PC, Microsoft created this new feature,

Our solution? We created a Room PC View button on the console that controls the display of the in-room PC screen share. If you want the screen share to display in the room, you can turn the button on; if you want to keep the screen share from displaying, turn the button off.

This feature is optional. System admins can control whether the Room PC View button is present or not by toggling it on or off in the admin UI. If you’re not using a hard-wired in-room PC, the system admin can go into the admin UI and turn off Room PC View, which hides the Room PC View button and returns the LRS to the original content capture experience. Views and options vary depending on your configurations.
