Cisco WebEx Video Conference Room Kit Setup

 

The Cisco WebEx video conference room kit “Room Kit Codec Plus” is jammed back with features including multi television use, taking live video conference polls, ceiling mics extensions, follow the viewer camera, and the all in one – integrated camera, speakers and mic.  We have included some hardware specs and software licensing resources to help guide if you never user the Cisco WebEx Video Conference Room Kit plus some general room kit pricing.

It’s really important to have not only the required software listed below but to make sure it’s registered and activated for your environment.  You can utilize “Touch Tablet” to reset the hardware to factory defaults if it is registered under a prior business name.

Cisco WebEx Video Conference Room Kit Required Software

  • One required “host” license for use but 2 licenses total when you have a room
