In Microsoft Teams meetings the new presenting experience with PowerPoint Live, Whiteboarding, and Hand raising introduces interactivity beyond traditional static presentation sharing (BFCP).

Only Synergy SKY gives you a similar native MS Teams experience on SIP devices.


Many organizations have invested in SIP video teleconferencing devices which do not connect to Microsoft Teams Meetings. However, there is a way to retain your existing SIP video devices and STILL connect to all internal and external Teams meetings. 

With Synergy SKY CONNECT, an award-winning multi-vendor gateway, you can join any internal and external MS Teams meeting from your Cisco and Poly endpoint. It is not CVI (which does not deliver a native MS Teams meeting experience and does not support these advanced MS Teams features). Synergy SKY is a cloud-based videoconferencing gateway, allowing you to experience these advanced features in your SIP to MS Teams meetings.

Meeting features that elevate your meeting no matter if you connect from Cisco device or Teams client.   

1. Presentation Sharing

You can now do Application sharing and Presentation sharing on all meetings between Cisco Webex, SIP endpoints and Microsoft Teams clients.

  • From a video conferencing device:

    • Cable (HDMI and USB-C)

    • Wireless (Webex, Barco Clickshare, etc.)

  • From a Microsoft Teams Rooms (MTR) or soft client:

    • Via cable or wireless

    • Supports PowerPoint Live, whiteboarding and screen sharing

The future is application sharing, not screen sharing 


What does that mean for you?

 Your SIP room can receive and see whatever is shared in the meeting; a screen, presentation or an application

2. Teams' interactions on SIP devices

You can now get native Microsoft Teams experience on Cisco Webex Touch 10 (requires management suite version 31.01) with features including -

  • People/Participant List - All participants, including SIP rooms, will be visible. It will also show visual cues on each participants’ status such as if a participant is muted, has raised hand, or is currently sharing a presentation.

  • Meeting Views/Layouts - You can choose your preferred layout view, gallery, large gallery and together mode, directly from the SIP endpoint.

  • Interactions – You can pin and fit-to-frame a participant in a Microsoft Teams meeting. You can also raise/lower hand directly from the SIP endpoint.

What does that mean for you?

You can get a similar Microsoft Teams experience including its native features on your Cisco devices. This will enable you to connect to Microsoft Teams meetings via your Cisco SIP devices without replacing your video hardware, protecting your investments, and saving costs. All of this with no user-training required since it’s been built to work intuitively.

If you are a government agency, looking for a similar MS Teams meeting experience on SIP devices, CONNECT is also available as a self-hosted gateway solution. Read more about Synergy SKY CONNECT for Government here.
