Our October MUCUGL event was on on last Thursday night, which happened at the Polycom EBC in Old Broad St.
We had a modest turn out, which made for a more personal event giving everyone an opportunity to mingle and share war stories. Polycom came to the party in a big way, providing lots of refreshments and snacks. They also demonstrated all their Microsoft video integration scenarios along with the impressive Immersive Telepresence rooms.
Jeff Schertz delivered a great presentation on Audio/Video Conferencing with Lync and Polycom. He went into lots of detail on video components, the difference between QCIF, CIF, VGA and HD video resolutions and how this all relates to Lync.
I also gave my presentation on the new Lync for Mac 2011 client, where I talked about the Mac story so far and what the new client looks like. The slides are available for viewing below on Slide Share.
Tom also gave an update on the community as a whole and spoke about Skype, Windows Mobile and CEBP. All the other sets of slides can be viewed on the MUCUG London blog and you can check out the audience feedback we received.
An update for Lync for Mac
Last Friday an update was released by Microsoft to fix the Office 365 and certificate issues on OS X. More info is available in the blog post from the Office for Mac team here. Technical info is in the Microsoft KB article here and this page includes a link to download if you’d rather not wait for Microsoft AutoUpdate to do its thing.
