MCU Management

The Polycom RealPresence DMA system can integrate with Multipoint Control Units (MCUs) to enable multipoint video conferencing. A multipoint video conference is one in which multiple endpoints are connected, with all participants able to see and hear each other. The endpoints connect to an MCU, which processes the audio and video from each endpoint and sends the conference audio and video streams back to them.

You must organize MCUs configured as conferencing resources into one or more MCU pools (logical groupings of media servers). Then, you can define one or more MCU pool orders that specify the order of preference in which the RealPresence DMA system uses MCU pools.

Every conference room (virtual meeting room, or VMR) is associated with an MCU pool order. The pool(s) to which an MCU belongs, and the pool order(s) to which a pool belongs, are used to determine which MCU is used to host a conference.
