Screen Mirroring with AirPlay-Certified Devices

This section provides information you need to set up and configure a Polycom Trio 8800 system to work with AirPlay-certified devices.

The following information applies to using AirPlay-certified devices with the Polycom Trio system:
  • You can display local content only from your AirPlay-certified device to the Polycom Trio 8800 system monitor.
  • Sharing content from direct streaming sources, such as YouTube™ or web links, is not supported.
  • If you share content during a point-to-point or conference call, the content is not sent to far-end participants.
  • Audio-only content is not supported. If you only want to share audio, consider using Bluetooth or USB connectivity.
  • Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) is not supported.
Polycom Trio 8800 systems support the following AirPlay-certified devices:
  • Apple ®
  • iPad®
  • iPad Pro™
  • MacBook Pro®

The Polycom Trio 8800 system supports a maximum resolution and frame rate of 720p@60fps or 1080p@30fps. If configured for 1080p resolution, an iPad often sends 60fps video, which can result in latency in mirroring, visual artifacts, or both.

When the Polycom Trio 8800 system receives content from a Skype for Business client using the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) at the same time as content from an AirPlay-certified device, the AirPlay content takes precedence and displays. When you end AirPlay content, available Skype for Business content displays.
