Other Supported Accessories

Below lists specific device models or supported series that Cisco has validated with the latest VXME firmware to support audio devices with basic call control functionality and accessories that adhere to the Cisco video experience. You should consult accessory vendors for support of these accessories and validation of other devices that are not listed.

Note:    Due to various headset types, call control may differ from the expected Cisco user experience, please consult the vendor for any noted deviations for each applicable model or series listed below.

For Supported Audio Accessories: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/voicesw/uc_endpoints_accessories.html.

Note:    If an audio accessory is not listed above in the provided link, it may work with VXME but will only support audio path only.

For Supported Video Accessories: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/voicesw/uc_endpoints_accessories.html.

Note:    For low processing powered endpoints (ex. VXC 6215), to achieve HD video of 720p at 30 fps requires a camera with local encoding hardware for video processing such as Logitech Webcam C920-C. When using a non-encoding camera, output is limited to 360p at 30fps.

Audio Path and Call Control

VXME supports audio devices (See Table 1) with integrated call control functionality for a complete UC experience of Cisco Jabber.

User management of calls, such as answer and end call, can be achieved with Cisco Jabber in the user’s hosted virtual desktop.

Device Selection

Device selection is managed by the Device Selector, which is provided in the system tray of the user’s Windows desktop (Figure 1).

When a supported audio or video device is connected to the endpoint running VXME, it is automatically selected as the new active device. If the default device is disconnected or unavailable, then the previously active device is automatically selected to receive the audio-video media stream.

Placing a mouse over the Device Selector icon displays the currently active audio and video devices (Figure 1).

You may also manually select an alternative active audio or video device by clicking the Device Selector icon in the Windows system tray and selecting from the list of connected devices (Figure 2).
