Restrictions

No web proxy is supported on the UCServer for the connection to UCConnect. This must be bypassed for the connection.

For the clients, it is not recommended that the connection to the services takes place via a web proxy or via a VPN connection. This can lead to limitations in the accessibility of the services and quality within meetings.

Please check with the system administrator if you are connecting to the Internet using VPN or a web proxy. You can also optionally use the following websites for this purpose:

Maximum bandwidth video (blue star)

transmit: max. 2500 kB/sec
receive: (2-15 participants): maximum per participant 2500 kB/sec
Codec: VP8

Maximum bandwidth audio (blue star)

transmit: max. 50 kB/sec
receive: (2-15 participants): maximum per participant 50 kB/sec
Codec: Opus

Maximum bandwidth desktop sharing (blue star)

transmit: max. 2500 kB/sec
receive: max. 2500 kB/sec
Codec: VP8

(blue star) These specifications are maximum values determined under laboratory conditions. The actual values depend on factors such as currently available bandwidth, available CPU, additional screen sharing requirements, or other applications.


CPU/GPU requirements

For the best possible meeting experience, use a modern CPU/GPU that supports hardware acceleration in encoding/decoding of the VP8 video codec. Otherwise, the performance of the overall system can suffer due to software encoding/decoding.

The necessary technical information about the performance of your CPU/GPU can be found in the designated documentation.
A listing for Intel CPUs can also be found in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Quick_Sync_Video#Hardware_decoding_and_encoding

Scalability

Maximum meeting participants: 15

It is irrelevant whether a video is transmitted or only audio.
