Using Microsoft Surface Hub & Skype for Business into a Webex Meeting

Microsoft Surface Hub & Skype for Business into a Webex Meeting

So I’ve had many questions on whether the Surface Hub can make a call into a Webex Meeting.  If your Webex account has a SIP URI such as grahamw@company.webex.com then it has a SIP compatible Personal Meeting Room/CMR.

So what does it look like?  Have a look below at the screenshots and photos to see it all in action.

With Pexip, it just works.

Here is Pexip Infinity working in the background

Let’s add a Skype for Business client too – receiving content too from the WebEx client.  Oh and let’s throw a Polycom system in there too.

Now let’s share from Skype for Business to the WebEx Meeting

And the view from the Surface Hub….

Next up is testing the Whiteboarding/sharing content from the Surface Hub to the WebEx Meeting.  The whiteboard from WebEx is not compatible with standard video – see the error below.

However, sharing the Whiteboard and anything from Surface Hub is supported via Pexip Infinity.

So there you have it. Bringing Skype for Business and the Microsoft Surface Hub into a Webex meeting is certainly possibly using the Pexip Infinity platform.  Using the platform as a simple gateway allows everyone to see their native format.

For further information on Pexip, just visit https://www.pexip.com or view the YouTube channel to see video demonstrations of the product in action.  https://www.youtube.com/pexipinc.  Alternatively, I have videos on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/grahammw.
