Existing Cisco Unified Video Advantage users do not have to replace their cameras with Cisco VT Camera II. Cisco VT Cameras requiring replacements will be replaced with either the Cisco VT Camera or Cisco VT Camera II. Cisco VT Camera II requires Cisco Unified Video Advantage software version 2.0(1) or later. This software version will support both Cisco VT Camera and Cisco VT Camera II.
