For a new project I am currently looking into video intercom options. I found the following which seems to be promising:
I have seen a youtube video that shows how it works with a Cisco 9971: Cisco IP phone & IP door intercom live demonstration - YouTube
However, I am interested to know if this will work with the new Cisco 8800 series phones. I assume it will work with the 8845 and 8865 as those come with a camera, but will the other 8800 series phones be able to display a video stream?
Does anyone have any experience with the 8800 series phones and video display or even better with video intercoms?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have seen video's like this in the past as well. This is not an officially supported use case, but users are doing it as shown here. The 88xx video phone 8845 and 8865 could theoretically do something like this as well, but again is not something we are calling out as a officially supported use case. To your point, the 8811, 8841, 8851, 8861 do not support video so they would not support this at all.
If you need more info feel to contact the IP Phone Team directly from our product pages:
Can someone point me in the direction of the documentation/instructions on how to get this setup in CUCM and on the phone configuration? We have a different brand SIP intercom (Axis A8105-E) that we want to use for this function.
After CUCM version 10.5.x, the Axis intercoms had this issue with Cisco phones. What we have had to do on every site is create a custom audio codec preference list and push the G.711 u and a law (Qty. 4) to the top with G.711 64K and 56K being 1st and 2nd. After that, we would either attach that to the existing regions or create a new region and just relate all others to that region. We would then create a device pool - Axis Intercoms and put all the intercoms in that device pool. You need to make sure that the Maximum Session Bit Rate for Video Calls is set to 2048 kbps to support the HD 720P streams on the newer phones.
We use 2n for door security and it works fine with the 8845, 9900 series and Jabber. I've noticed it prefers g.711 since moving primarily to g.729 on my network so just allow your regions to throttle up to 64k and you'll be all set.
