Introducing Cisco Unified Video Advantage

Overview

Cisco Unified Video Advantage brings video telephony functionality to all video-enabled Cisco Unified IP Phones. Video enabled phone models currently deployed in the university are the 7911, 7940, 7942, 7945, & 7965. When Cisco Unified Video Advantage is coupled with a supported USB video camera, it enables a PC connected to a Cisco Unified IP Phone to add video to phone calls without requiring any extra button-pushing or mouseclicking. If you have a video enabled phone and supported camera Information Systems can deploy the Video Advantage application to your PC remotely. You can easily tell if you phone is video enabled by looking for the icon on the bottom right of the phone display. This means that you can use video when communicating with other Cisco Unified Video Advantage users and with Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985 (integrated video) desk phones. If Cisco Unified Video Advantage is not running on your PC or on the PC of the remote caller, the call functions like a regular phone call without video. You can also use video while attending Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meetings. Video advantage is preconfigured by Information Sytems and starts automatically, so you use your phone exactly as before, including using a headset or the speaker phone (on enabled models), However if you want more information on Video Advantage or to customise some of the user options please read on.
