• Video communications is becoming pervasive in enterprises of all sizes and
users are wanting flexible and robust deployment models for video that
enable a richer, scalable and more intuitive experience.
• Implementing and delivering these capabilities has impact on the network
infrastructure because as the demand for video increases so does the need
for high definition video multipoint conferencing ports.
• The challenge then becomes satisfying the need in a manner that is rapidly
implemented, massively scalable, and distributable.

The recently announced Cisco MCU 5300 Series provides an immensely


rich feature set that builds upon Cisco's market leading portfolio.
The MCU 5300 gives network administrators a tool for scalable
deployments through a "pay as you grow" licensing model and an industry-
first, unique stacking capability.

Stacking Ethernet

Back of unit

• Stacking connector located in the back of the unit:


• 1 connector (only connect 2 together)
• Special cable, orderable with system or as a spare.
• When stacked only master Ethernet is required to be connected.
• Front LCD panel of the slave will show different information in a stack.
• Stacking is configured on both units. Once in a stack (cluster) all configuration is
done on the master.

• Transcoded Mode
DSP resource used to transcode content to lowest common denominator
(auto: H.263+ or H.264)
Max content resolution in FullHD mode is 720p30 or 1080p15 (rel. 4.2),
otherwise it is 720p7.5
• Pass-through Mode
Incoming content is not decoded; content streams are switched through
the MCU with no use of video ports, reduced latency, and increased
resolution choices (up to 1080p30)
• Hybrid Mode
Combines passthrough and transcoding for different endpoints e.g. HD
and SD or H.264 and H.263
