New features and functionality

Changes to automatic updates

Automatic updates for Mac OS X

The automatic update feature is now available also for Mac OS X users.

Note: Current versions of Cisco TMS do not support uploading files with the .dmg extension. The Movi

installer must therefore either be added to ..\TANDBERG\TMS\wwwTMS\Public\data\SOFTWARE\ using Windows Explorer or hosted on a different server.

New provisioning settings for updates

Note: The provisioning settings for Windows clients have changed to accommodate Mac OS X support.

The old settings for download and software version have been deprecated.

The new settings are:

Platform Download URL setting Version number setting

Windows

Windows Software URL Windows Software Version

Mac OS X OS X Software URL

OS X Software Version

Active Directory authentication with NTLM

Administrators may now set up Movi to authenticate using Active Directory usernames and passwords instead of having special authentication credentials for Movi.

Note: Back-end support for Active Directory integration requires Cisco TelePresence Video

Communication Server version X6.1 .

For guidance on deploying NTLM with Movi and Cisco VCS, refer to Authenticating Devices Cisco

TelePresence Deployment Guide.

Automatic Gain Control (AGC)

In order to provide an optimal sound level to far end users, Cisco TelePresence Movi will now dynamically amplify or attenuate the microphone signal before sending.

Movi will also reduce the microphone level in the system settings by as much as 40% if the current level is determined to be critically high. When the call ends, the system microphone level will be reset to the original state.

Note that no equivalent microphone level adjustment is made if the microphone level is too low— this will still require manual adjustment by the user.

Support for IPv6

Movi 4.2 has the ability to receive and make calls on a IPv6 network.

The IP Version and Public IP Version provisioning settings support the options:

WARNING:

Do not force Movi to use IPv6 unless all users are permanently on an IPv6 network. Users who sign in over IPv4, for example from a home network, will otherwise be rejected.

Also note that ICE is not supported with IPv6 for Movi. When Movi signs in over an IPv6 connection,

ICE will be disabled.

Multiple server connections with SIP outbound

This version of Cisco TelePresence Movi also introduces support for the SIP "outbound" feature, as described in RFC 5626 . The feature allows Movi to keep open connections with several servers in a cluster, and failover by transferring automatically to the next server in the cluster should one server go down. Should one connection be lost, Movi will also be reachable from multiple servers.

The provisioning settings for this feature are Multiple Server Connections and Public Multiple Server

Connections, where the "public" setting will inherit its value from the regular setting unless explicitly

configured. The default setting is Off.

Windows presentation sharing enhancements

n

Movi for Windows is now able to share the user's entire screen. Note that this will also share the Movi windows themselves. We recommend minimizing the video window when the entire screen is shared.

n

In presentations shared using the Windows client, the mouse pointer/cursor will also be shared.

n

PowerPoint 2010 presentations can now be shared on Windows XP without display issues. Full screen/slideshow mode is however not available. Regular slide view/edit mode can be used for sharing.

Due to application-specific support for Windows APIs, not all applications can be shared with

Movi at this time. Platforms known to cause presentation sharing issues in Movi include Adobe

AIR and GTK+.

Windows XP only: Sharing Internet Explorer 6.0 or 8.0 as a presentation makes the presentation video flash.

Mac OS X 10.5 only: Font corruption can be seen in the video window when running Movi on

Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).

Mac OS X only: Sometimes when a call is rejected, the caller is not notified, and the ringing signal continues.

Mac OS X only: It is not possible to share full-screen PowerPoint presentations.

85992 When user ends a call while having another call on hold, the presence status erroneously changes to "Online". When the second call is resumed, the status remains "Online".

n

For optimal performance and reliability, Cisco recommends that all users of the Cisco TelePresence

PrecisionHD™ USB Camera ensure that the camera has the latest firmware.

n

Using Movi for Mac with the Cisco TelePresence PrecisionHD™ USB camera is recommended. Note that firmware must be version 1.3 or later for Mac OS X support.

n

Built-in Apple iSight cameras are supported by Movi for Mac.

Upgrading

Upgrading

The process of upgrading Movi is controlled by the IT administrator through four provisioning options in

Cisco TelePresence Management Suite: n

Windows Software URL and OS X Software URL n

Windows Software Version. and OS X Software Version

When these two options are correctly configured, users can upgrade their own Movi client by clicking a link in the application, which downloads the setup file for the new version.

This method presents users with a choice to upgrade their Movi client. If you want to make absolutely sure that all clients are upgraded, you can instead opt to use your deployment tool(s) to force the upgrade.

System requirements

Infrastructure requirements

Movi requires the Provisioning option on the Cisco VCS and in Cisco TMS to be enabled.

Product Version required

Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (Cisco TMS) 12.6 or later

Cisco Video Communication Server (Cisco VCS) X5.2 or later

X6.0 or later for ICE support

X6.1 or later for NTLM support

NTLM authentication client requirements

Movi now supports authentication with Active Directory and NTLM. For instructions on deploying

NTLM authentication with Movi and Cisco VCS, refer to the Authenticating Devices Cisco TelePresence

Deployment Guide .

Note that to useMovi for NTLM authentication with Cisco VCS, NTLMv2 must be supported by the client computer.

This requirement is especially important to be aware of if there are older computers and/or Windows XP users in your network.

On the client computer:

1. Go to My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

2. If the LmCompatibilityLevel setting (REG_DWORD) is 1, set to 2 or higher.

3. Save your changes.

WARNING:

With a setting of 1, authentication will fail for the client, and no warnings or error messages will be received from Cisco VCS, which passes the request on to the Active Directory server.

Upgrading to Cisco TelePresence Movi 4.2

The installer will uninstall whichever previous version of Movi is present on the system, and the program file and icons are completely removed. However, all profile folders and files are kept intact on uninstall.

Cisco TelePresence Movi 4.2 will then install itself to the path n

Windows Vista and 7: ~\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\ n

Windows XP: ~\Program Files\Cisco\ n

Max OS X: ~\Applications\Cisco TelePresence Movi

If upgrading from a version prior to 4.1, the following renaming will be performed when Movi is launched: n
