What is a VTC?
Video teleconferencing device typically used in conference rooms
VTCs in some cases have dual screens: one for video and one
for presenting
Some of the expensive VTCs have their own MCUs that can
host conferences
Legacy video teleconferencing systems
Video Interoperability Server (VIS)
VIS Operating Mode
SIP trunk mode
High level VIS architecture—SIP trunk
Skype for Business
Legacy Video
Signaling Server
Topology Considerations
A VIS pool must be standalone (scaled pool—multiple pools)
VIS is the next hop from CUCM
VIS is the media relay where Edge services are a consideration (no bypass for media)
Video Gateways is made dependent on a VIS pool if the VIS pool is configured for
SIP trunk registration
VIS — Client Considerations
VIS does not transcode the video stream from Cisco
VTCs to RT-Video
For conferences and calls involving Cisco VTCs and
Lync 2013 or Skype for Business clients,
interoperability occurs via H.264 and simulcast
VIS — Cisco VTC validation
