About the User Interface for International Languages

In addition to the US English user interface, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing supports the following five international languages:

French

German

Japanese

Portuguese (Brazil)

Spanish (Americas)

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing automatically detects which voice prompt languages are installed on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server. If more than one language is detected, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing displays a Select a Language drop-down menu in the upper-right corner of the home page so that users can choose their desired languages from the user interface.

When a user who has not yet logged in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing first accesses the home page, the language that displays on the home page is based on the language setting of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace built-in guest profile. The default language setting of the guest profile is typically US English.

When a user who has previously set the profile language to German logs in, the home page displays in German. Regardless of the language configured in the profile, users have the option to choose a different language by using the Select a Language drop-down menu. However, this language selection applies only to the web user interface; a different set of language rules governs the behavior of voice prompts.

For more information about installing additional Cisco Unified MeetingPlace languages on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server and language rules, see the Localization Procedure for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server Release 5.2 and Release 5.3.

About Meeting Types

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing offers the following meeting types to accommodate a variety of meeting needs:

Open forum meeting—A meeting where all users can speak, listen, and share content equally. Open forum is the default meeting type.

Lecture-style meeting—A controlled meeting environment with greater user permission restrictions. In terms of audio permissions, the majority of attendees enter as Listeners with only one or more designated Speakers. In terms of meeting console permissions, users enter with either Audience, Participant, or Presenter permissions based on their user class.

Immediate meeting—A meeting that you can schedule to start automatically by using system default scheduling parameters.

Reservationless meeting—A meeting with a preassigned meeting ID that does not require you to previously schedule resources. Meeting IDs for reservationless meetings are equal to the scheduler's profile number.


Note You must have set your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system to reservationless mode before users can initiate reservationless meetings. For more information on configuring your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system to reservationless mode, see the Configuration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server Release 5.3.


Multiserver meeting—A meeting that allow attendees on different Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server systems to communicate with each other as if they were in the same meeting. When users schedule a multiserver meeting, they designate one Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system as the primary server responsible for connecting to other secondary audio server systems.


Note Multiserver meetings do not span web servers. The web-conferencing portion of a multiserver meeting is scheduled on the web server associated with the primary Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system.

About the Meeting Console

The meeting console tightly integrates voice, video, and web-conferencing for a seamless, intuitive conferencing experience. Users enter the meeting console from their meeting notifications or from the Web.

The meeting console allows users to experience the full range of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing functionality, including menus, participant displays, and chat. Certain features, such as video-conferencing, require the purchase of separate Cisco Unified MeetingPlace products or options. For more information, see your Cisco sales representative.

Some systems and Internet browsers do not support the full meeting console. For more information about end-user requirements, see the "Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing End-User Requirements" section of the Release Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.


Note Meeting console load times vary with individual deployment. Generally speaking, we consider anything under one minute as an acceptable meeting console load time.


Table 9-2 Meeting Console Features 

Feature
Description

Menus

Personal, Meeting, Share, and Help menus offer logical access to various in-session features. Menu items that are unavailable because of a user's guest status or meeting console permissions appear dimmed.

Annotation toolbar

When annotation is enabled, this toolbar displays various annotation tools for use in all web-conferencing modes. For a description of all annotation tools, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.

Web collaboration window

The web collaboration window occupies the right pane of the meeting console and allows users to view or collaborate on documents in Presentation, Application Sharing, or Whiteboard mode.

Meeting details

Meeting details, including the meeting ID and dial-in information, appears in the top right corner of the meeting console, next to the menu options.

Connect window

The Connect window occupies the top left of the meeting console and displays a dynamic display of who's speaking and who's sharing, and a Connect button to connect attendees to the audio and video components of their meeting.

Slides tab

The Slides tab presents thumbnails of presentation slides that are attached to the meeting along with any snapshots taken during a meeting. Access to the Slides tab is limited to users with Presenter permissions. Presenters can preview their slides, modify the order of slides, or delete slides altogether without having to reload their presentation. This functionality is not available after recording is enabled.

Attachments tab

The Attachments tab lists files that have been attached to the meeting. Users can also attach documents during the meeting from this tab.

Participants tab

The Participants tab lists current meeting attendees along with their audio status (muted or unmuted), meeting console permissions (Audience, Participant, or Presenter), video status, and assigned annotation color. You can configure the Participants tab to not display for guest users in lecture-style meetings by modifying the parameter from the Web Server administrative page (Admin > Web Server). For more information, see the "Customizing Local Web Server Options" section on page 2-34.

Note The Participants tab lists the first 100 attendees. If there are more than 100 attendees in a meeting, a message appears stating that there are too many attendees to display.

Chat window

The chat window occupies the lower-left corner of the meeting console, in the sidebar. If the sidebar is closed, users have no way of knowing if a chat session has started. You can disable the chat feature by modifying the Allow Chat in Meeting Console parameter from the Web Server administrative page (Admin > Web Server). For more information, see the "Customizing Local Web Server Options" section on page 2-34.

About Using Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing With NetMeeting 3.01

As an alternative to the meeting console, NetMeeting allows users to chat and use whiteboard features to view and collaborate on documents. However, users may have to configure NetMeeting to work with particular browsers.

When using NetMeeting with Netscape Navigator, users must configure their browsers with the NetMeeting Multipurpose Internet Mail Exchange (MIME) type as indicated in the following procedure.

Manually Configuring the MIME Type on Netscape Navigator 7.0

Procedure


Step 1 Launch Netscape Navigator.

Step 2 From the Edit menu, choose Preferences.

Step 3 From Category, choose Applications or Helper Applications.

Step 4 Click New Type.

The New Type window opens.

Step 5 Enter the following information:

For
Enter

Description of type

Speed Dial

File extension

CNF

MIME type

application/Cisco MeetingPlaceNM

Application to use

rudll32.exe msconf. dllOpenConfLink


Step 6 Click OK.

Step 7 From the Preferences window, locate the Description column. Choose the listing for the CNF extension type and click Edit.

The Edit Type window opens.

Step 8 Click Ask me before opening downloaded files of this type to uncheck it; then, click OK.

Step 9 Close and restart your browser for the change to take effect.


About Presentation Mode

For presentation mode, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations are uploaded as attachments and then converted into slides.From the Slides tab, the meeting host can then view thumbnails of the slides, change the order of the slides, or delete slides altogether without having to reload the entire presentation.

There is a limit of 256 slides or 10,000 KB file size allowed per presentation per meeting.

The default size for converted slides is optimized for displays at 1024 x 768. If you have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on the web server, you can modify the resolution of your slides in Presentation mode. For information, see the "Configuring the Presentation Resolution" section on page 2-36.

Presentation mode also allows users to annotate on slides to emphasize key points. Annotations are preserved on the slide so that you can save them for download.

Restrictions

You cannot delete or move slides after an attendee enables recording. This restriction applies even if the recording is stopped during the meeting.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing does not support the sharing of video applications or streams. If you try to share a video stream in Presentation mode (with the video embedded in to the PowerPoint slide page), attendees in the web conference will only see a black screen in the video placeholder. This does not impact Flash-based video displays since windows does not treat Flash as a video feed

About Optimized Slide Download in Lecture-Style Meetings

When attending a lecture-style meeting in Presentation mode, the meeting console caches three slides ahead of the one being presented rather than downloading all slides at once. This optimizes performance and reduces network load.

Viewing the Maximum Number of Attachments Setting

Each Cisco Unified MeetingPlace profile includes a setting that indicates the maximum number of attachments you can upload when scheduling a meeting. If the max. # of attachments setting in your profile is set to ten, the maximum number of attachments you can upload to any meeting you schedule is also ten. Other users attending your meeting are also limited by your personal max. # of attachments setting.

To view the Maximum # of Attachments setting, do the following:

Procedure


Step 1 Log in to MeetingTime.

Step 2 Click the Configure tab.

Step 3 Choose User Profiles and scroll down to the Max # of attachments field.

About Presentation Mode

About Application Sharing Mode

Application sharing mode allows the meeting host to share an application without having to upload it in advance. Meeting hosts have the option of sharing their desktop, a specific application, or only part of their screen. They can also choose to enable collaboration.

Users on Windows systems can share applications by using the full meeting console or a T.120 application, such as NetMeeting.

Users on Mac systems can share applications by using the basic meeting console.

Users on Unix systems can share applications by using a T.120-compliant application, such as SunForum 3.2.

Users can all view applications in Application Sharing mode regardless of their platform.

Restrictions

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing does not support the ability to share a desktop or application that spans across multiple computer monitors. Make sure that your desktop or application appears on a single monitor before attempting to use the Application Sharing feature.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing does not support the sharing of video applications or streams. If you try to share a video stream in Share Desktop mode or Share Application mode, attendees in the web conference will only see a black screen in the video placeholder. This does not impact Flash-based video displays since windows does not treat Flash as a video feed.

For additional information about the user experience in Application Sharing mode, including information about audience latency feedback, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.

About Whiteboard Mode

Whiteboard refers to a blank page that is displayed like a slide in the web collaboration window. Users can access the whiteboard by clicking the Whiteboard icon on the meeting console control panel. Users can then annotate on the whiteboard by using a variety of annotation tools (subject to meeting console permissions). For more information on permissions, see "About the Annotation Feature" section.

Users with appropriate permissions can take snapshots of whiteboard sessions and save them to their hard drives. They can also incorporate snapshots into presentations.

About the Annotation Feature

The annotation feature allows one or more users to add text or graphics in a real-time, interactive manner. When users first enter the meeting console, the system assigns them with a particular color. This color is displayed as a bar next to the user's name in the Participants tab. If desired, users can change their annotation color by clicking the palette icon in the annotation toolbar.

Annotation is enabled in all web-conferencing modes: Presentation, Whiteboard, and Application Sharing. However, it is only enabled in Application Sharing mode if there is an application being shared. Annotations created in Application Sharing mode hover over the application. Changing pages in an application sharing session will reveal the same set of annotations. On the other hand, annotations created in Presentation mode remain with the slide that is being annotated.

The ability to use annotation is based on a user's meeting console permissions. For more information, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.

About Recording and Playback

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing supports two levels of recording: audio-only and synchronized audio-web. The audio-web recording feature allows users to record both the voice and web portions of their meetings. Specifically, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing records voice stream and all web-conferencing information, including presentations with annotations, whiteboard with annotations, and application share. It does not record broadcast prompts, such as "now joining" or "now departing". It does not record if there is no voice component to the meeting. If there is a video component to the meeting, it does not record the video display.

After a meeting has been recorded, users can access the recording from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Past Meetings page by clicking the Attachment/Recordings option.

Audio recording is a standard Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing feature; audio-web recording is not. To purchase audio-web recording as an option, see your Cisco sales representative.

Accessing Recordings

To listen to voice recordings, users must have a corresponding audio player installed on their end-user systems. Table 9-4 lists the audio file formats supported by Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing as well as the encoder used to convert the format, the player, and media server responsible for each format.

Typically, WAV files are supported by common web browsers and do not require a dedicated server, encoder, and player.

We recommend that you configure Windows Media Server to enable streaming playback of your audio and audio-web recordings. For more information on configuring Windows Media Server, see the "Configuring the Windows Media Server" section on page 3-10. You must install and configure supported services and end-user applications in order for playback to work.


Note Accessing a rich-media playback under typical modem transfer rates can yield a less than satisfactory user experience. If the server is running out of disk space while a current recording is being made, the system notifies all users that there is no more space available. To reduce the likelihood of this occurrence, see the "About Audio Conversion" section on page 3-8.


About Accessing Attachments

Users can download meeting attachments through their web browsers. For attachment downloads to work properly, the web-conferencing server and web browser must be properly configured to handle Multipurpose Internet Mail Exchange (MIME) attachments.

Most web browsers support mechanisms, such as helper applications and plug-ins, that allow users to view documents that cannot be read natively by a web browser.

To identify a file type, the web server reports the document's MIME type to the web browser. For a web browser to properly launch a file, you must configure it for the MIME type.

Because setup programs for Windows applications typically set up the appropriate associations between applications and filename extensions, your users will rarely encounter a case where they are unable to load files posted in popular formats.

Configuring Windows Explorer File Types

Procedure


Step 1 From your Windows desktop, double-click My Computer.

Step 2 From the My Computer window, choose Tools > Folder Options.

Step 3 Click the File Types tab.

Step 4 Scroll down and choose the SpeedDial File Type. It has a CNF extension.

Step 5 Click Advanced.

Step 6 From the Edit File Type window, clear Confirm open after download; then, click OK.


Configuring IIS with the MIME Type in Netscape Navigator

If the Microsoft IIS web server is not configured with the MIME type for .cnf files, Netscape Navigator users will see an Unknown File Type window appear when they try to access attachments. The web server uses .cnf files to direct web browsers to the web conference. After configuring your IIS web server with the MIME type for .cnf files, users will no longer receive this window.

Procedure


Step 1 From the Windows Start menu, open Internet Service Manager.

Step 2 Right-click the NMSpeedDial folder (located under the \MPWeb directory), and choose Properties.

Step 3 Choose the HTTP Headers tab and click File Types; then, click New Type.

Step 4 From the File Type window, enter the following:

For
Enter

Associated Extension

Step 5 When you finish, click OK.


Configuring Unknown File Types in Netscape Navigator

If Netscape Navigator users see an Unknown File Type window when they try to download a file format that is not recognized by the web browser, complete the following procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 From the Unknown File Type window, click Pick App.

The Configure External Viewer window appears.

Step 2 Click Browse to choose the directory that stores the program you want to associate with this file type. This program will be used to open this file type in the future.

Step 3 Click OK.


Configuring Unknown File Types in Internet Explorer

Even though Microsoft Internet Explorer also supports MIME types, the preferred mechanism for associating file types with applications is through filename extensions.

If Internet Explorer downloads a file where the filename extension is not known, it displays an unknown type window.

Procedure


Step 1 From the Unknown file type window, click OK.

The Open With window appears.

Step 2 From the Open With window, choose the application you want to associate with this file type and then click OK.


About Polling

The polling feature allows users who sign in by using their Cisco Unified MeetingPlace profiles to create single-question polls, multiple-question surveys, or brainstorming questions to gather ideas, opinions and other feedback from meeting attendees. All meeting attendees are then given voting options and results are displayed during or after a meeting has concluded.

A meeting must be scheduled before a user can create polls. Only the meeting scheduler can see the polling icon from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Future Meetings page.


Note For Release 5.3(235) and later releases, the pie chart tab is not shown for WebPoll Results when the chosen language is Japanese.


About the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Video Integration

This release ofCisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing integrates with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Video Integration to allow video functionality through the meeting console. This includes the ability to do the following:

Schedule and attend a video conference

Start, stop, pause, and play video

Choose between two video displays: Multiple People view or Active Speaker view

Mute and unmute all voice sources

Eject users from the video conference

Disconnect from the video meeting


Note Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing does not support the sharing of video applications or streams. If you try to share a video stream in Share Desktop mode, Share Application mode, or Presentation mode (with the video embedded in to the PowerPoint slide page), attendees in the web conference will only see a black screen in the video placeholder. This does not impact Flash-based video displays since Windows does not treat Flash as a video feed.


Users must have video scheduling privileges indicated in their Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user accounts before they can access video features through the meeting console. Privileges are configured when the user profiles are created and can be viewed or modified in the MeetingTime application and from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Account Basics page.

For more information on MeetingTime, see the Administrator Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server Release 5.3.

For more information on the video integration, see the Administrator Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Video Integration Release 5.3.

Attending a Video Meeting

The ability to attend a meeting through a video endpoint from the Web is supported through the meeting console as well as the Meeting Information page as long as the meeting scheduler has video privileges. If the meeting scheduler does not have video privileges, all video features from the meeting console are disabled.

From both user interfaces, users click the Connect button to join the video component of their meeting. From the meeting console, a Connect window appears. If the user's video address is part of the user profile, the Video Endpoint field is prepopulated and selected. If the video address is not part of the user profile or the attendee is a guest, the video endpoint field is left empty so that the user can manually enter the video endpoint address and have Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing connect them.

When a user connects to the video meeting, the user is identified as a video participant in the Participant's tab. For detailed step-by-step instructions on how to use the video integration, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.


Note Video functionality from the meeting console is not supported in multiserver meetings.


Meeting Passwords and Authentication for Video Participants

Meeting passwords and authentication for restricted meetings are enforced for video participants through the standard Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing attend process. If a meeting is password protected, users must enter the password prior to accessing the Meeting Information page or meeting console. Users are only provided with access to the video conference outdial after they have successfully passed password authentication.

About Meeting Console In-Session Features

In-session features allow users to do such things as mute their lines, start or stop recording, lock or unlock the meeting, and form subgroups in breakout sessions. Most in-session features are restricted to the meeting scheduler and profile users only. For further information, including user instructions, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.

About the Javaless Client

The Javaless client allows users to participate in a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web conference without enabling Java. It is available from all supported browsers when Java is not enabled. You must have installed MeetingNotes data licenses on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server system in order for Javaless support to function.

Users of the Javaless meeting console will experience several restrictions. For more information, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 5.3.

Javaless Client User Experience

The Javaless client user experience is exactly the same regardless of which Internet browser you are using. However, performance tends to be faster when using Internet Explorer.

When you first join a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web conference, a message displays informing you that Java is not enabled on your browser and an HTML Slide Show window appears on your desktop. When a presentation is shared, it is displayed in the HTML Slide Show window.
