With Real-Time Audio-Video, users can run Microsoft Teams in their remote sessions.
Webcam and audio devices that are connected locally to the client system are redirected to the remote sessions, and use a significantly lower bandwidth than by using USB redirection.
When you launch the Microsoft Teams application inside a remote desktop, you select VMware virtual input and output devices from menus in the application. The VMware virtual devices redirect the audio and video devices that are connected to the client machine.
- For virtual desktops, with Horizon Client for Windows 5.2 and later, Real-Time Audio-Video can redirect more than one audio and video device. The names of redirected devices in the virtual desktop are the actual device names, but with (VDI) appended, for example, C670i FHD Webcam (VDI).
- For virtual desktops, with Horizon Client for Windows 5.1 or earlier, or with a non-Windows client, Real-Time Audio-Video can redirect only one audio device and only one video device to a virtual desktop. The device names are VMware Virtual Microphone and VMware Virtual Webcam in the virtual desktop.
- For published desktops and published applications, Real-Time Audio-Video can redirect only one audio device and only one video device. The device names are Remote Audio Device and VMware Virtual Webcam in remote sessions.
To use Real-Time Audio-Video with Microsoft Teams, you must install the audio and webcam device drivers on your Horizon Client systems.
After you install Horizon Agent with Real-Time Audio-Video, Microsoft Teams works on your remote sessions without any further configuration. See Configuring Real-Time Audio-Video.
