Solstice Conference Supported Peripherals

In addition to the ability to wirelessly share content shown on the Solstice display to any supported video conferencing app on the meeting host's laptop, Solstice Conference makes USB peripherals plugged in to the Solstice Pod available for audio and video use in the video conferencing application. When a laptop wirelessly connects to the Pod, these devices are presented to the host laptop as though they have been directly connected, enabling the video conference host to select them as cameras, microphones, and speakers.

Peripheral Types

Peripherals can include microphones, speakers, cameras, and composite devices that include one or more of these capabilities. The Gen3 Solstice Pod supports both USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices. Multiple peripherals can be plugged into the Pod, including the use of a third-party USB hub.

Connectivity and Setup

The Solstice Pod supports a plug-and-play experience. No drivers or new software needs to be installed on the Pod itself. 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.

Connected USB devices are only supported when using the USB 2.0/3.0 ports on the back of a Gen3 Solstice Pod. The USB-C port on the front of the Pod does not support any connected devices. Attempting to utilize the Pod's USB-C port may result in unexpected outcomes.

If you have multiple audio devices connected to 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.

Power Considerations

Peripherals that contain rechargeable batteries are not recommended. These devices will attempt to charge their batteries via the USB connection to the Solstice Pod, which the Pods were not designed for. If the connected peripherals require more than 1.5 amps total power over USB, it should first be connected to a powered USB hub that is then plugged into the Pod, or to a separate power supply, so that it does not draw power from the Pod.

If a Solstice Pod has multiple USB devices attached, PoE+ alone may not provide sufficient power and can result in unexpected peripheral device and/or Pod performance. Mersive recommends powering Pods with the Mersive-provided external power supply instead of, or in addition to, PoE+ in these cases.

Verified Peripherals

Solstice Conference supports plug-and-play USB devices such as room cameras and microphones. These devices must be connected to the Pod via USB 2.0 or 3.0. The devices listed below have been tested and verified by Mersive to work with Solstice Conference and have full support of the device’s functionality unless noted otherwise. The following list is not a comprehensive list of all compatible peripherals, but contains those that have been tested and verified by Mersive.
