Allow hard codecs to participate in WebEx Training sessions

For distance education settings, we have (had) a hardware codec call into a WebEx Meeting. Before we installed the hard codecs, we used to use Training due to the moderation features. The features of using a hardware codec to send any content to the meeting outweigh the moderation features. However, we'd like to have both...the ability to have a codec call the meeting AND use the role-based moderation features of training.

    IE - when we to a training center session and the presenter wants to show something on the Doc Cam, the people in the traning center session do not see the doc cam -- because it is not connected to a computer host. HOWEVER, if we do a meeting center session, the far side can see the Doc Cam because it is shared from the hard codec.

    We like the ability to "mute on entry" for participants when the training session is scheduled, not as an optional setting when the meeting host begins the meeting. We like the role based permissions of TC. However, we really like the integration of our room system/hard codec calling the MC or EC session ensuring the far side can see whatever is in presented in the room, not just what is on the presenter's computer. So, if you could allow a hard codec to make a SIP call to a TC session just like is available in MC and EC, that'd be great!

    We'd need to understand the full scenario for attaching hardware codec to bring into meetings, and usecase it solves for you.
