Q: What's the MSRP on this?
A: For MSRP, please reach out to your Cisco partner or sales rep who can provide pricing. The GPL for the Room Phone is $2,625
________________________________________________________________

Q: What are key differentiators to the existing ‘WebEx’ hardware - the Room and Board devices 
A: Single device solution for call, meetings and sharing which will allow you to scale your webex device experience. 
________________________________________________________________

Q: Can you expand on how the guest sharing via web browser works?
A: go to devices.webex.com and pair with device using a pin and then share content
________________________________________________________________

Q: What about this phone makes it anything other than a Webex Room Kit Mini that has had the camera removed, and the form factor changed? 
________________________________________________________________

Q: can it register to both WebEx Control Hub and CUCM?
A: Yes. It can register directly to the Webex Control Hub (like other Webex Room devices) as well as CUCM
________________________________________________________________

Q: Can this WebEx phone be assigned a WebEx Calling license?
A: yes Webex calling provisioned through control hub
________________________________________________________________

Q: Can the Room Phone be paired to an exisiting room system where mic/speakers are an issue?
A: Not at this time but defintely something we are looking into.
________________________________________________________________

Q: does it control the display using CEC? such as display power on/off, display volume, display input source?
A: yes we support HDMi-CEC for all of those functions
________________________________________________________________

Q: Will the wireless mic kits be an option with with device??
A: We supported only wired mics at this time.
________________________________________________________________

Q: will the recorded session be share?? and also the slides??
A: Yes! The recording, slides, and demoes will be available at cs.co/RoomPhoneEvent approximately 24 hours following this live event :)
________________________________________________________________

Q: Is webex calling through cloud only? We have a direct connect and video mesh so assuming that means it doesn't use either of those and webex calling is cloud only based on the slide.
A: Webex Room Phone registers natively to Webex Control Hub so you would receive all of those features. In my tests it does work with Video Mesh. 
_____________________________________________________________

Q: I still think it is a miss to be able to "consume" video - i.e. I appreciate you can't send video, but given you've connected to a screen you could show participants video. Is this roadmapped?
A: Great feedback. No ETA to share but definitely something we are considering!
________________________________________________________________

A: Yes it can be for local sharing content

Q: Will the interface be customizable at all (like adding buttons similar to touch10)
A: Not at this moment but defintely something we are looking to add
________________________________________________________________

Q: Can it be used to project to an existing overhead projector?
A: Yes, via a HDMI connection.
________________________________________________________________

Q: How long is the HDMI cable that ships with the webex room phone?
A: 8m HDMI cable (HDMI out to display)

3m HDMI cable (HDMI in for screen sharing)
________________________________________________________________

Q: so if we have the room phone in webex and ucm registration, the audio will come from the ucm call and presentation from webex
A: The audio will follow the presentation stream
________________________________________________________________

Q: Is wireless sharing works even with CUCM registration only?
A: Not at this time the device supports cable sharing in on-prem only mode. Wireless sharing without Webex activation is on the roadmap.
