Microsoft-certified CVI for Cisco devices

Cloud Video Interop (CVI) is a Microsoft-certified solution that enables third-party SIP and H.323 video room devices to join Microsoft Teams meetings. 

Integrated with VQ OBTP

Pexip integrates directly with Cisco's VQ Conference Manager, allowing users to join meetings with One Button to Push (OBTP).

Teams-like user experience

Benefit from a Teams-like user experience in every meeting room, even when using Cisco video conferencing systems.


Display avatar images from Active Directory (AD) or initials if no image has been uploaded. 

See indicators such as status, far-end mute, raised hand, and active speaker. 

Dual screen support

Enable a more immersive experience for dual-screen endpoints. When content is not being shared, participants will automatically span both screens to drive up a face-to-face experience. When content is shared, people will automatically show up on one screen, and the content will appear fullscreen on the other. The experience will dynamically shift between both appearances without any end-user intervention.

Large gallery view support

Automatically show all participants within large meetings when large gallery view is enabled on the Teams meeting. This feature even spans both monitors in a dual monitor setup.

Deploy CVI in a secure environment of your choice

Choose the environment that meets your needs. You can deploy the Teams Connector in a standard Azure commercial cloud or in Azure U.S. Government (GCC High or GCC DoD).


You can also even deploy in a combination of Azure U.S. Government and a commercial Teams environment or a Teams GCC environment. But, for Teams GCC High environments, Teams Connector must be deployed in Azure U.S. Government.
