Beginner Question: Standalone Unite Hub, can I run VC software on same PC?

Before I will buy Unite Hub compatible PC let me make sure, that I enable anything correct.

My scenario is to setup an standalone Unite Hub. This Unite Hub should be running as a server where useres sent their screen presentations too. At the Unite Hub the server software should be running in background and I want to run VC software (WebRTC, Zoom, Skype, ...). Is this possible as a use case?

How CPU intensive is Unite Hub software?

Thanks

Hello JeiBie,

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Support,

 

 

I understand that you have an inquiry regarding using the Intel® Unite stand alone and VC software like Skype for example. It will be my pleasure to assist you.

 

 

Regarding using the VC software, it is possible, however it will use more of the available resources of the PC, Nevertheless, Intel® Unite does not use many resources itself.

 

 

Now, it is recommendable to check the "settings" of the Intel® Unite Stand Alone settings so you can change the program from "full screen", remove the check from it and then you will be able to properly use your PC while running the Intel® Unite Hub in the background.

 

 

 

I hope you find this information helpful.

 

 

 

Regards,

Hi David,

sorry for my late reply, was not able to respond earlier.

As a followup to my first question: I want to install standalone Unite Hub. According to

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/software/software-applications/Intel_Unite... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/software/software-applications/Intel_Unite...

no Plugin Installation is possible? (See page 5) Want to install Logitech and Zoom Plugins.

If thats right, is the only workaround to Install Unite Enterprise solution?

If this is correct, do you have an overview of Enterprise and Educational solution?

Thanks and best regards

Juergen

Hello JeiBie,

 

 

Thank you for your response,

 

 

I understand that you are interested in our Intel® Unite Enterprise, however I do not understand the question correctly.

 

 

Are you looking for a link to download the software or are you looking for a user manual for example? If that is the case please refer to the user manual in the link below:

 

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/software/software-applications/Intel_Unite...

 

 

Also, depending on the unit that you will be using to implement Intel® Unite, the OEM releases a version that can be downloaded from their website, for example Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. It all depends on what unit you will be using to implement the Intel® Unite.

 

 

I hope you find this information helpful.

 

 

 

Regards,
