What is LRS?

What is LRS?

Recently we have deployed Lync Room System in our environment so thought share my experience.

LRS (Lync Room System) is basically Lync client. This client was developed from the Lync client by using the Lync SDK. The Lync client runs in the background in partial UI suppressed mode. The Lync client controls the video gallery and content stage on the screen at the front of the room. The LRS client provides a console experience on the table top display for controlling the meetings.

 Lync unified communications client that has been optimized for Lync meetings in physical conference rooms.

Lync Room System provides:
1.    A one-touch meeting join experience
2.    Automatic setup of multi-view video gallery
3.    Touch-enabled white boarding on the screen at the front of the room
4.    Calendar integration for access to scheduled meetings
5.    Content sharing and switching

Before setup LRS room you must have following things for LRS:
a.     Exchange resource mailbox account to facilitate calendar scheduling for the meeting rooms with AutoDiscover service enabled on Exchange Server (2013 preferred). e.g.
b.    A Lync-enabled LRS account on a Lync Server 2013. e.g.
c.     An LRS client appliance PC with all required software installed. The appliance PC must be running Windows 7 Embedded Standard operating system. This hardware is provided by OEM partners along with all devices (displays, camera, microphone, speakers).
d.    If you decide to join the LRS appliance PC to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain, group policy settings that do not interfere with LRS (section later in this document covers those). Alternatively, you can leave this appliance PC in the Workgroup.
e.     Appropriate user rights to run the cmdlets specified in this document. The CsMeetingRoom cmdlets are modeled after the CsUser cmdlet. Therefore, all role-based access control (RBAC) roles required to run CsUser cmdlets also apply to CsMeetingRoom cmdlets.

Thank you.
