Citrix® HDX™ RealTime Optimization Pack for Microsoft® Lync® version 2010 provides a highly scalable solution for delivering real-time audio-video conferencing and VoIP enterprise telephony through Microsoft® Lync® in XenDesktop, XenApp, and VDI-in-a-Box environments. HDX RealTime Optimization Pack leverages your existing Microsoft® Lync® infrastructure and inter-operates with other Microsoft® Lync® endpoints running natively on devices.
HDX RealTime Optimization Pack consists of both client and server components:
When using a LogiTech C920 camera with the Optimization Pack, the CPU on the terminal sending the video doesn't limit the video resolution of the camera. The terminal can send up to HD (720P) video to the other parties in the call (depending on the codec used in the call, the processor speed of the recipient, and the network restrictions set by the Lync administrator).
You and your call participant can now both go on and off hold simultaneously without any adverse effects. [#16269]
