Solstice Peripherals List

The listed USB peripherals have been certified for use with Mersive's Solstice Pod for enhanced audio and video experiences during Solstice in-room content sharing and Solstice-enabled video conferences. USB video and audio devices plugged in to a Gen3 Solstice Pod can be wirelessly connected with a user's laptop through the Mersive Solstice app. This allows users to then select them as audio and video sources in their video conferencing app of choice. Some commonly used adapters, hubs, and kits are also listed.

Certification Levels

Mersive now provides two levels of certification for USB peripherals used with the Solstice Pod:

  • Mersive Certified Devices have undergone the highest level of certification testing. The devices on this shortlist have been extensively tested by Mersive to provide a stable video conference experience across all supported platforms and chipsets with the last two versions of Solstice on Gen3 Solstice Pods (required to connect Solstice-connected peripherals to a video conference).
  • Verified Devices are those that have been tested to work with at least one version of Solstice and the listed device. This verification may come from Mersive's automation lab or a manual compatibility test by Mersive, a device manufacturer, or other trusted source at a specific point in time. Mersive provides this information as a guide but does not certify the performance of these devices in all configurations. View the Verified Devices list.

Compatibilities and Best Practices

  • The Gen3 Solstice Pod supports USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices. Multiple peripherals can be plugged into a Pod using a USB hub (powered hub recommended). Peripherals include microphones, speakers, cameras, and composite devices that include one or more of these capabilities.
  • The Solstice Pod supports a plug-and-play experience in which no drivers or software needs to be installed on the Pod itself for the peripheral device to work as desired.

    Device management or features that depend on an external application, such as RightSight for the Logitech Rally Camera, will not work with Solstice because external applications cannot be installed on the Solstice Pod. Similar features that run on the device itself, such as RightSight on the Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini, should work with Solstice.

  • Power is one of the most important considerations for the Solstice Pod and attached USB devices. Insufficient power may cause poor peripheral device performance and/or decreased Pod performance, particularly in video conferences. Follow these power recommendations for best results:
    • Use the dedicated power supply for any device that has one. The Solstice Pod is not designed to provide more than 1.5 amps total power over USB, which is not always sufficient for larger devices or more than one smaller device.
    • If connecting multiple USB-powered peripherals to a Solstice Pod, the use of a powered USB hub is strongly recommended to ensure all devices get enough power.
    • Peripherals that contain rechargeable batteries will attempt to charge their batteries via the USB connection to the Solstice Pod, which Pods are not designed for. Use a powered USB hub with this type of device.
    • Use a Mersive-provided power supply to power Solstice Pods with attached USB-powered peripherals. PoE+ can be used in addition to the power supply, but PoE+ alone may not provide sufficient power.

Connectivity and Setup

  • Simply connect supported devices to the USB 2.0/3.0 ports on the back of the Pod to enable users to wirelessly connect those devices to their video conferences on demand.

    Only use the USB 2.0/3.0 ports on the back of the Pod, not the USB-C port on the front of the Pod, to connect USB peripherals.

  • If you have multiple USB audio devices plugged into a Solstice Pod, see Default USB Audio Device Prioritization for information on how Pods prioritize audio routing with different types of audio devices and port addresses.

Mersive Certified Devices

Mersive has certified devices on this shortlist for use with Solstice to our highest level of testing. This includes full Solstice functionality, hardware remount, and longevity testing on all supported operating systems and chipsets for the last two versions of Solstice, as appropriate to functionality. Devices are listed alphabetically by manufacturer.
