The Video Interoperability white paper is now available in the Microsoft Download Center. Microsoft has enhanced the video interoperability story in Microsoft Lync by introducing a set of qualification programs and room-based systems optimized for Lync. With Office Communications Server 2007 R2, a number of scenarios were possible by integrating primarily with video systems from TANDBERG and Polycom. The technical requirements for interoperability have evolved to target specific video technologies and use cases. This white paper explores the new qualification programs.

The new Lync Video Interoperability Program introduces three new qualification programs—VTC, MCU, and gateway. Each program targets different use cases and addresses key interoperability areas in different ways. After you determine which use cases you would like to implement, refer to the corresponding qualification programs to determine how they implement interoperability with Lync and which ones are right for your organization.
