Frequently asked questions — features


Q: Will I receive push notifications across every device that uses Cisco Spark?
A: A great feature of Cisco Spark is its Smart Notifications system, which only sends push notifications to your active Spark app window. That means if you have an open Cisco Spark window, you’ll only see notifications on that device rather than being inundated with notifications across all of your devices.

Q: What hardware does the Cisco Spark Room Kit include?
A: The Cisco Spark Room Kit comes with:

  • Integrated device (camera, speakers, microphones, codec)
  • Touchpad controller
  • Power adapter & network cable for touchpad
  • Media bar power adapter
  • HDMI cable
  • Network cables (2)
  • Screen mount
  • Wall mount bar
  • Wall brackets (2)

Q: Do I have to have a Cisco Spark Board to use the whiteboard app?
A: No. You can use the whiteboard app on any app-compatible device. The whiteboard app allows you to sketch ideas and notes in an instant message, video call or presentation.

Frequently asked questions — functionality


Q: How large of a conference room is this kit meant for?
A: The Cisco Spark Room Kit is intended for small to medium conference rooms seating up to seven people.

Q: How do I invite a non-Spark user to a Cisco Spark room?
A: You can invite anyone outside your organization to collaborate through Cisco Spark simply by sending an invitation URL for your meeting.

Q: Why is the picture quality not displaying at 4K?
A: Make sure the HDMI cable you’re using is HDMI 2.0-compliant — HDMI 1.4-compliant cables don’t support 4K/60 fps.
