What is the In-conference experience for “Office 365 Dual Homed Experience with OBTP Scheduling”?

"Office 365 Dual Homed Experience with OBTP Scheduling” provides the “dual homed experience” with 2-way audio, video and content sharing. Office 365 clients have the familiar in-conference experience determined by the Lync AVMCU, and participants using OBTP enabled endpoints have a video conferencing experience determined by the Meeting Server. All see the combined participants lists.

Note: Controls on clients do not work conference wide, and can give rise to some strange behavior. For example, if a Skype for Business client mutes an endpoint connected to the Meeting Server then the endpoint will mute, but no notification is sent to the endpoint to say it has been muted; the endpoint cannot unmute itself. If a Skype for Business client mutes all endpoints connected to the Meeting Server and then unmutes them, all the endpoints will remain muted.

Note: ActiveControl functionality such as muting and dropping participants only affect participants on the local Call Bridge and not on the Lync AVMCU.
