Real-Time Audio-Video works with standard webcam, USB audio, and analog audio devices, and with standard conferencing applications like Skype, WebEx, and Google Hangouts. To support Real-Time Audio-Video, your Horizon deployment must meet certain software and hardware requirements.
The desktops must have View Agent 5.2 or later, or Horizon Agent 7.0 or later, installed. For View Agent 5.2 desktops, the desktops must also have the corresponding Remote Experience Agent installed. For example, if View Agent 5.2 is installed, you must also install the Remote Experience Agent from View 5.2 Feature Pack 2. See the View Feature Pack Installation and Administration document. If you have View Agent 6.0 or later, or Horizon Agent 7.0 or later, no feature pack is required. To use Real-Time Audio-Video with published desktops and applications, you must have Horizon Agent 7.0.2 or later.
Horizon Client computer or client access device
Real-Time Audio-Video is supported on x86 and x64 devices. This feature is not supported on ARM processors. The client system must meet the following minimum hardware requirements.
320 x 240
2 core, 1800 MHz
640 x 480
2 core, 2700 MHz
1280 x 720
4 core, 3400 MHz
Horizon Client requires the following libraries:
The plug-in file (/usr/lib/pcoip/vchan_plugins/libviewMMDevRedir.so) has the following dependencies.:
libuuid.so.1 libv4l2.so.0 libspeex.so.1 libudev0 libtheoradec.so.1 libtheoraenc.so.1 libv4lconvert.so.0 libjpeg.so.8
All of these files must be present on the client system or the Real-Time Audio-Video feature will not work. Note that these dependencies are in addition to the dependencies required for Horizon Client itself.
The webcam and audio device drivers must be installed, and the webcam and audio device must be operable, on the client computer. To support Real-Time Audio-Video, you do not have to install the device drivers on the desktop operating system where the agent is installed.
VMware Blast (requires Horizon Agent 7.0 or later)
