Any reason you couldn’t just use scopia desktop ?? We have had good luck with this on Windows and Mac platforms.

Subject: Re: Possible to connect laptop to LNV Polycom system to use Skype?

 

The free version of Fuze might work for this one-off event - https://www.fuze.com/plans.  Fuze supports a mix of H.323 systems and PCs as endpoints and has clients for all the desktop and mobile OSes.  Only the person that initiates the VC needs an account I believe. I don't think you're going to get that Polycom camera and mic to work through a laptop, but if you do, I'd be interested to hear how...  The monitor should be as simple as plugging it into your laptop, esp. if it has HDMI.

 

Best,

Pat

Hi all,

 

We have an upcoming Skype session with an author, and I'd like to use our Polycom camera and microphone (and monitor, if possible). I know Skype is proprietary and won't work with H.323. I'm not actually trying to connect through the LNV; I'll be using a laptop and would like to take advantage of the better camera and mic.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Sue
