HDX8000- Able to View Computer without Pushing the Computer Image?

Hello all, we have two televisions that our VTC (HDX 8000) pushes to. If we are in a VTC call and want to view our Computer (say we have slides) on one of the screens, while still pushing our camera feed instead of the computer screen- is that possible?

 

Thanks,

-Bearcat


Edit: Alternatively- "content" instead of computer- are we able to view content on one of our screens (near end) without sending it to the far end.

The only setting the HDX has is a "Send Content when PC Connects" located in the camera section of the Admin Tools.

 

This setting, when checked, allows the content on the PC or laptop to be sent to the HDX as soon as the PC is connected.  When un-checked you have to hit the Content button on the remote control to 'see' the content in the room.  If the HDX is in a call that content is also sent to the far end.

 

So to answer your question 'it is not possible to be in a call and only see the content at the near end room' using a monitor that the HDX is connected to. 

 

You will need some type of switching device to display the local content on a different input of that monitor or use a separate monitor.
