Conference control including participant mute/unmute and disconnect is not supported in Q2For RMX, RTV’s resource consumption is the same as H.264. CIF: 1, VGA:1.5, and 720pHD: 3MR/EQ presence up to 24 per MCURMX Click-to-conference is done by server side script that forwards MP calls to RMX. Otherwise, click-to-conference and other types of ad hoc multiparty calls are hosted on Microsoft MCU.
