Skype Room System Update – April 2016 (15.15.04)

Just noticed on SMARTs website that there’s an updates for SRS last month on 19th April 2016 software version 15.15.04. Reading the MS KB looks to also apply to Crestron RL and Polycom Cx8000 systems.

Looks to be some bug fixes, improvements,UI tweaks, SMART bios update, a bunch of Microsoft updates and adding a new front of room touch administrator setting to allow use of non-touch front of room displays which sounds interesting. Ill have to do some more digging on this one but I’ve noticed if you have touch displays its not recommend and has some things to be aware of when enabling listed below.

Things to be aware of when you enable the non-touch user interface (UI):

  • The whiteboard can be launched only by remote participants.
  • Embedded PowerPoint videos can be played only by remote participants.
  • The non-touch UI isn’t recommended when you use touch displays.
