The Lync Video Conferencing Systems Market is Growing
Market Solutions for Lync Interoperability with Legacy A/V Systems Is Expanding
Having two disparate systems will require a lot of investment in media gateways, licensing, maintenance, and IT overhead. Organizations simply want to adopt a native Lync Video Conferencing solution to leverage their Microsoft Lync infrastructure investments and have a Lync experience in the meeting room similar to that of the PC or laptop. So, after working with temporary solutions for a while, replacing those legacy systems with Lync-enabled solutions becomes on their alternatives.

Do-It-Yourself Solution Does Not Work Well
1- No fixed room identity (No specific Lync account for the room, use would use their own Lync accounts to sign in).
2- PC's OS maintenance and updates.
3- No enterprise-grade management for the DIY conference rooms since all are using dedicated PCs.
4- Some issues related to connected peripherals like camera and speakers and switching between multiple devices like those.
5- No great user experience of the desktop Lync client in the meeting room.
6- PC control is limited to one meeting participant and there must be a meeting moderator to control the meeting.
