|Complex conference room|
Your conference room may have also looked like the picture posted. Hopefully you are not dealing with this type environment. Comment below if you are. I typically find organizations that have this type of conference room are struggling with understanding the new capabilities that modern video conference room device can do to reduce complexity.
The HDMI switch example in this post while only a small piece of a puzzle shows how you can start leveraging the Cisco video device in the room to reduce complexity.
Below is an overview of what we are trying to achieve.
The Webex Room Kit we will be leveraging the following features:
- Custom Touch 10 UI
- HTTP request GET method
The HDMI switch for this project is a Atlona AT-JUNO-451 pictured right. Its around $400 on Amazon and one of the cheapest HDMI switches that is IP controllable. Comment below if you have used other HDMI switches with success.
For our project we need to complete the following steps:
- Custom UI inputs on our Touch 10
- Codec Macro creation
- HDMI switch setup
In the next post we will tackle the custom Touch 10 UI controls to control our switch.
