Release Notes
Polycom PVX 6.0.2
System Performance
For systems with a ViaVideo or ViaVideo II camera, most of the media processing is done by the
camera. Systems with a 1.2 GHz Pentium 4 or greater can support People+Content. The
People+Content sharing requires PC processing and therefore demands the higher performance
processor. Content sharing will benefit from additional CPU speed.
For systems with a web cam, all of the processing is done on the PC. There is a wide range of PC
performance levels. To optimize the video experience on each system, a CPU resource manager
within the Polycom PVX software gauges the system performance and adjusts the media features
accordingly.
If you do not use People+Content, disable this feature for the best video and audio quality. If you
use People+Content, you can adjust the way the Polycom PVX software allocates system
resources between people video and audio and content. To do this, choose Setup > General and
then click Performance. Choose one of these performance settings:
This Setting
Provides:
Balanced
Good video without too great an impact on general application
performance.
Other Applications
More processing power for running critical applications while reducing
the processing allocated to people video and audio.
Polycom PVX
Great audio and video while reducing the responsiveness of other
applications.
Issues and Restrictions
The following types of issues are described in this section:
Audio Issues
Calling Issues
Microsoft Windows
Network Issues
VideoMail Issues
ViaVideo Hardware Issues Web Cam Hardware Issues
Video Issues
Audio Issues
‰
If the audio from a system with a web cam and PC microphone is loud or distorted,
reduce the microphone gain setting. This is under the audio tab of the setup screen.
‰
When adjusting audio settings, ensure that your system is not muted. The audio
adjustment slide bar is accessible only if the system is unmuted.
‰
To minimize the echo that might be returned to the person at the far end, do the
following:
‰
•
Reduce the web cam microphone gain under the audio tab of the setup screen.
•
Reduce the volume of the local speakers.
•
Separate the microphone and speakers as far as possible.
In a multipoint call, a Polycom PVX system with a web cam may sound either too loud or
too soft compared to the other participants in the call. If this is the case, adjust the
microphone gain. To do this, click Setup > Audio. This solution is much more effective
than adjusting the playback volume depending on who is speaking.

Release Notes
Polycom PVX 6.0.2
‰
Users may experience various audio anomalies using USB audio with their ViaVideo or
ViaVideo II cameras. Polycom recommends using analog audio instead.
‰
For optimum audio performance, connect external microphones to the same device as the
external speaker set. Once connected, be sure to select the device in the PVX audio
options under Setup > Audio > Audio Input Device.
‰
You may notice loss of far-end audio when you speak at the same time as the far end
when using a ViaVideo or ViaVideo II camera.
‰
Users may notice an increase or decrease of the audio volume level when starting the
Polycom PVX application.
‰
When using a headset with the ViaVideo or ViaVideo II cameras, connect the headset to
the camera via a 2.5mm Stereo Jack to 3.5mm Stereo Plug adaptor. While many cell
phone headsets are compatible for use with ViaVideo cameras, those that support an
audio range up to 7kHz are recommended.
Calling Issues
‰
When users are in an audio-only call, they may lose their local video if they click the PIP
button. Local video will return once the call is terminated. To avoid losing local video, do
not click the PIP button in an audio-only call.
‰
If your system is registered with a gatekeeper, you must use quotes when you call an alias
or extension that includes a space in the name. For example, to dial Polycom Austin as an
alias, you must enter “Polycom Austin” in the address field to connect the call.
‰
When placing a call from the Directory dialog either by manually entering an address or
by selecting a number from a directory, use the Call Quality drop-down list to choose a
call rate for that address. The selected rate will override the rate stored in the directory for
that number. If you choose a different address from the directory, the call will be placed
using the rate stored in the directory rather than the Call Quality override rate.
‰
If you change the available speeds on the directory drop-down list (via the H.323 >
Dialing Speeds tab) or remove the current directory default speed, you must go back to
the directory and explicitly change to the new speed. If you do not select a new speed in
the directory, Polycom PVX will continue to place calls at the previous default speed,
even though that speed no longer appears in the list. This issue will be addressed in a
future release.
‰
If users are having problems with E.164 or ISDN dialing, check on the Setup > Directory
screen that they have the Dial using H.323 extension when connected to a gatekeeper
option enabled.
‰
Users may see incorrect information in the Recent Calls list when dialing E.164 prefixes
through an MCU. This issue will be addressed in a future release of the Polycom PVX
software.
‰
Encryption is not supported when the system is registered to a gatekeeper that is
configured to do H.245 routed signaling. Either change the AES Encryption setting to
OFF in the H.323 tab under Polycom PVX setup or disable H.245 routed signaling on the
gatekeeper.
‰
The use of the Call Forwarding feature requires that your system be registered with a
gatekeeper. Once you have registered your system with a gatekeeper, the Call Forwarding
options will be enabled.
‰
The use of People+Content requires calling speeds above 128 kbps.

ViaVideo and ViaVideo II Hardware Issues
‰
The Polycom PVX software may intermittently fail to recognize the ViaVideo cameras.
If this happens, close the camera’s shutter and open it again. You may need to restart the
Polycom PVX application if the camera preference is set to “Use ViaVideo hardware if
present”.
‰
If you do not plan to switch between using a ViaVideo camera and a web cam, you
should configure the system to always use ViaVideo hardware. This prevents Polycom
PVX from switching to web cam mode if a ViaVideo camera is not detected on startup.
To do this, click Setup > General.
‰
If you use a laptop docking station, you may encounter difficulty while loading the
ViaVideo camera’s firmware. If this happens, connect the ViaVideo unit directly to
computer’s USB port.
‰
If you experience problems loading ViaVideo firmware through a USB hub, connect the
ViaVideo unit directly to computer’s USB port instead.
Video Issues
‰
H.264 video is only available when you are using a web cam on a PC running with a 1.5
GHz Pentium 4 processor or greater. At high call speeds, the software will switch to
H.263. In some cases connecting at a lower speed with H.264 will produce better results.
‰
With some web cam drivers, the camera appears to be connected when it is not actually
connected. The system does not display an alert and no video is displayed locally or
during a call.
‰
Users may experience no video from the Polycom PVX application after a computer
reboot or upon leaving hibernation or standby mode. To correct: Cycle the power switch
to refresh the ViaVideo camera’s firmware.
‰
Users may experience no video from the Polycom PVX application after a computer
reboot if Auto-start Application in Background under the General tab is checked. To
correct: Open the system’s Windows Task Manager, click on vvsys.exe and click End
Task. Exit the Windows Task Manager and restart the Polycom PVX application.
‰
For optimal low light calibration with the ViaVideo camera, the camera lens must be
completely covered. To cover the lens, move the slider on the front of the camera to the
middle position. With the slider in the middle position, the camera is still running but the
lens is covered.
If the lens cover is not completely closed during calibration, you may need to repeat the
calibration process. To repeat the camera calibration:
1.
Power off the ViaVideo camera.
2.
In the Polycom PVX application, go to Setup.
3.

Restart the Polycom PVX application and complete the setup wizard.
5.
Power on the ViaVideo camera and allow 30 minutes for the camera calibration
to begin.
6.
When prompted, move the slider on the front of the camera to the middle
position to cover the lens.
Users may experience a corrupted video display if the camera has been on for a long
period of time. Use one of the following solutions to correct:
•
Recycle the power on the ViaVideo camera.
•
Close all programs and restart the Polycom PVX application.
When the user launches the Polycom PVX application, the application loads software to
the camera. This is normal operation for the ViaVideo unit. This occurs when:
•
The camera is powered on.
•
The computer is restarted and the application is launched while the camera is
powered on.
The ViaVideo camera software may fail to load when the customer is using a nonpowered USB hub. Complete the following steps to load the software to the camera:
1.
Power off the ViaVideo camera.
2.
Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the ViaVideo camera.
3.
Verify that the Polycom ViaVideo device driver has been removed from the

and repeat steps 1-5.
7.
‰
Launch the Polycom PVX application software.
To optimize video quality, application sharing is disabled in Polycom PVX by default.
Users of Microsoft NetMeeting who enable the application sharing function may notice a
slight decline in video quality. Microsoft disables some DirectX video features in order to
provide a more accurate view of remote applications.
VideoMail Issues
‰
If you are having difficulty saving a VideoMail file, it may be because Windows has not
appended the .asf extension correctly in the File Save dialog box.
If you explicitly enter the .asf extension as part of the file name, the file will be saved
correctly. For example, in the file name field, enter the file name as MyVideoMail.asf.
‰
Recording a video mail is interrupted when an incoming call is automatically answered.
To resolve this issue, turn off the Auto-Answer feature.
‰
If you leave the VideoMail drop-down box open after recording a VideoMail message
and then place a call, you cannot play or record VideoMail until you close the VideoMail
drop-down box and then reopen it.

Release Notes
Polycom PVX 6.0.2
‰
The VideoMail feature cannot be used while in a call and the VideoMail control panel is
disabled.
‰
Use of the VideoMail recording feature with third party cameras is currently supported
on Windows XP operating systems only.
‰
If you expand the PVX window to preview a VideoMail recording and the video image
does not expand as well, the problem may be resolved by temporarily disabling hardware
acceleration. To disable hardware acceleration, go to Setup > Video and uncheck the box
labeled “Use DirectX Hardware Acceleration.”
Web Cam Hardware Issues
‰
Polycom has qualified the cameras listed in the Supported Web Cams section for use with
Polycom PVX software. Many other cameras with Microsoft WDM video capture
support will also work, although some are not fully compatible or place their own
demands on the CPU that prevent them from being included on the list. We continue to
evaluate cameras and will add them as appropriate.
‰
Very high CPU usage can be seen in a number of situations:
•
On systems with less than a 2.0 GHz Pentium 4 or equivalent, the software is
very busy with media processing with only a modest amount left for other
applications. Changing the resource allocation under the General – Performance
dialog in setup to favor “Other Applications” can reduce the load for video
processing.
•
On systems with some video capture devices, including some USB 2.0 cameras,
the camera driver can use a high percentage of the CPU to do video capture. If
you see the CPU load above 40% while in previewing local video while not in a
call this can be the cause. Changing the system resource allocation to favor
“Other Applications” under General – Performance in setup can help with this
somewhat. Please verify that you have the latest video capture drivers for your
device.
•
While sending the desktop to the far end you should see the CPU at or above
95%. This is expected since the desktop capture and encoder are busy running to
provide the best desktop video quality. This code however, is running at a lower
priority than normal applications which ensures that those applications run first
but that desktop video uses all remaining CPU resources.
‰
If you experience no video or audio in a call, please verify that the latest hardware drivers
are installed and check the video or audio with the vendor’s software to verify that the
operating system can handle the device properly. This can make a significant difference
in media performance.
‰
In some cases the graphics interface in older systems is too slow to render video properly.
This is especially true when multiple video windows are open at the same time or if a
video window is stretched to a larger size. If this is an issue, a newer graphics card should
be considered.
‰
You can connect multiple third-party cameras; however, not all types of cameras work
with other cameras. If you experience problems using a system with two third-party
cameras connected, try connecting only the camera you want to use.
‰
Multiple cameras of the same model are not supported.
‰
Some laptops will slow the clock speed when running on batteries and the Polycom PVX
software will show a processor alert. If this happens the PC should either be connected to
AC power or the system configuration settings under the Power Options control panel
should be changed to maximize performance (shorter battery time).

with an MGC-100 bridge running software version 5.0. MGC version 5.1 addresses this
issue.
‰
Polycom PathNavigator
Users may experience an audio screech when in a Conference on Demand call. This is
caused when one or more of the conference parties are placed on mute. To correct, users
should un-mute the far sites.
If you establish a PathNavigator address as your system gatekeeper, the Call Forward
When Busy settings may not be saved upon exiting the Polycom PVX application.
Call Transfer cannot currently be used when you are in a call using Conference on
Demand.
T.120 is not supported in a Conference on Demand call.
Users may experience poor video quality when only one endpoint is using PathNavigator
