Video for Skype for Business

Microsoft tests and qualifies video teleconference systems (VTCs), multipoint control unit (MCUs) or conferencing bridges, and gateways for interoperability with Skype for Business through our Video Interoperability Program. Our Video Interoperability program tests:

  • Video endpoints enable direct registration as an end point on Lync 2013 and Skype for Business Server 2015.
  • Video infrastructure to enable multipoint video conference bridge with Skype for Business users and enable standards based VTCs to connect via a gateway.

Always check if your Skype for Business version was tested to interoperate with the video systems.
