Advanced Settings and In-Room Controls

  •  

    With the Snap to Whiteboard extension, the camera captures both the person and the whiteboard when a person next to the whiteboard talks.

      

  •  

    The briefing room set-up is designed to provide easy setup, management and use of a room for education, training, or similar.

      

  •  

    You can customize our Touch 10 user interface to allow control of peripherals in a meeting room, for example lights and blinds. This allows for the powerful combination of a control system’s functionality and the user-friendly Touch 10 user interface.

      

  •  

    A selection of AV-related configurations is now available for Cisco Spark registered room devices.

The Touch controller was previously only available for direct pairing for SX80, MX200 G2, MX300 G2, MX700, and MX800 room devices. Pair the Touch controller before you register your room device to Cisco Spark.
