VCI goes wireless
With the 2.0 release, a 12" wireless pad has joined the VCI hardware portf
olio. The pad comes with a high quality 16:9 format capacitive touch display which can easily be passed around the table without being hindered by cables. 

Customize VCI for virtually any need
With the introduction of VCI Customization Framework, VCI can customized to meet virtually any customer need. Customizations might be anything from GUI adjustments and user surveys to advanced amendment in functionality, e.g.combining immersive and multipurpose Telepresence solutions.

Extended support functionality
For OCS enabled VCI panels, the support personnel will now be able to see the VCI panel display through VCI System Manager. This makes it easy to help users to performing successful meeting.

Microsoft Exchange integration for bookings
VCI is now integrated with Microsoft Exchange bookings. This means that VCI displays booking information from Exchange, and let users to book meetings ad-hoc from VCI. VCI now integrates with bookings from both Exchange and TMS.

Enhanced triple stream VCI
The VCI triple stream (named VCI Medical) has now been enhanced to also cover non-health related scenarios. VCI is capable of sending up to five sources in three - and even four - video streams that will be shown on three (four) displays both locally and on the remote site. The triple stream functionality is now also available 'offline', i.e. without having any active calls (can be used for local training sessions, health board meetings etc.)

Recording triple stream
For VCI Medical all three streams may now be recorded at the same time using Cisco Telepresence Content Server (TCS).

Larger and more user-friendly phonebook
The phonebook has become taller, which improves the user experience. In addition, favourites are now merged with the rest of the phonebook which makes the graphical user interface more intuitive.

Accelerated scrolling
The phonebook, call history and all other lists now support accelerated scrolling (similar to smart phones and tablets).

Design-makeover of the welcome screen (fully customizable)
The welcome screen has been refurbished and gives a modern and fresh impression. The welcome screen design is fully customizable to meet customers' requirements of using the company's graphical profile. The default background image being used (which can be altered with company's logo etc.) can be downloaded 

Larger OCS window
The embedded OCS client has now been enlarged and is only shown when an OCS call is active. Thus unnecessary graphical elements are kept to a minimum.

Time zone support
VCI now has time zone support for all time zones around the globe.

Change password
The password required to enter the settings screen may now be changed to comply with company security policy.

Important note
Any customized logo on the welcome screen will be removed during the upgrade if the resolution is too low, since the logo now covers the entire screen. If you wish a custom welcome screen you may either create a background image from scratch or base it on the default image that can be downloaded from
