Cisco TelePresence MCU 4200 Series

Lifesize Endpoint receives at 720p but does not send HD

Hierarchical Navigation

Why is my Lifesize endpoint receiving at 720p from my Cisco acquired Codian product but not sending HD?

In continuous presence layouts a High Definition screen is composed of multiple images. Each image does not need to be at full resolution in order to compose a full resolution image; therefore, having each endpoint send a smaller image (for example, 480p or 288p) and composing that into a larger image (for example, 560p or 720p) will produce the best results.

The MCU 4200 Series does not support full screen voice-activated switching at 720p on the Lifesize endpoints.
