Have you heard the news?  New software 15.14.02 is now available for Polycom's CX8000 (with Crestron RL codec).


 Polycom's CX8000 was custom built for Microsoft Lync 2013 environments. Over the years customers enjoyed a familiar Lync experience along with powerful collaboration features like PowerPoint annotation and white-boarding on touch displays. 


However, in May 2015, Microsoft released Skype for Business Server 2015. They also updated the client user interface along with Office 365 online environment.  Since then, customers have steadily upgraded their server environment to Skype for Business and they are quickly getting used to the new look and feel of the Skype for Business client.   




The new CX 8000 software provides the Skype for Business branding and refreshed user interface. Why does this matter?

As the automatic update is turned off by default on the Crestron RL codec, the administrator of existing systems can change the setting to enable the automatic update or to manually update the system. 






The latest software release provides a host of improvements and fixes. For more details check out the Microsoft KnowledgeBase for more details. 


The Polycom CX8000 web page is being updated with new collateral to reflect the new Skype for Business branding this week.
