Skype for Business Content Sharing

You can scroll and zoom content on the system monitor, and systems can control content received from Skype for Business clients. RDP content sharing does not require the Polycom RealPresence Group Series system to be in an audio or video call.

You can control shared content from a Skype for Business client using a USB mouse and keyboard.

The following content types from Skype clients are available:
  • All Monitors: Displays content from all monitors connected to the system with the Skype client.

  • Primary Monitor: Displays content from the primary monitor connected to the system with the Skype client.

  • Secondary Monitor: Displays content from the secondary monitor connected to the system with the Skype client.

  • Program: Displays content from a particular program connected to the system with the Skype client.

For content to display properly, Monitor 2 must support progressive mode (e.g., the resolution should be set to 1280x720p or 1920x1080p). Interlaced mode for Monitor 2 is not supported (do not use resolution settings such as 1920x1080i).

For information on limitations of this feature, see the Polycom RealPresence Group Series Release Notes for your software version at Polycom Support.
