How Do I Enable H.239 or BFCP? Follow

Zoom supports H.239 ITU standard for content sharing on a H.323 device and BFCP for content sharing on SIP device. This allows you to view a video stream as well as a content stream through your H.323 or SIP device if you have dual monitors. H.239 and BFCP are ON by default, and can be toggled with the instructions below.

You will need to enable H.239 or BFCP in your device settings before using this feature with the Cloud Room Connector.

Sending content from H.323 or BFCP endpoint: 

  • Plug in your computer (or other device) into the H.323 or BFCP device and share content.

Receiving content on H.323 or BFCP endpoint:

  • Single-screen - content will be displayed on the single screen
  • Dual-screen - content and video will be displayed on dual screen as default. To disable dual screen:

  2. Press "0" to access more options.
  3. Press "1" to toggle H.239 or BFCP for dual-screen.
