  • If you disable Audio\Video to a user, that you cannot get any calls from any other A\V enabled users. In a conference scenario, they will get a conference join in request. But, they need to dial in to the conference from another phone to get audio.

  • Hi,

    Agree with Thamara.Wijesinghe.

    If you enable Audio\Video to Lync user, for Lync meeting, there is only one Client Policy to control video: AllowIPVideo.

    It indicates whether or not computer video is allowed in the meeting. The default value is True.

    This setting applies to the user who organizes the conference: if set to False, no conference created by a user affected by this policy will allow IP video. However, the user can take part in other conferences where IP video is allowed.

    More details:

    It couldn’t achieve your requirement as well.

    So you need to disable Audio\Video to the user and then dial in to join the Lync meeting.

  • If you disable Video capability for a user using Conferencing policy(AllowipVideo -False) and make him join a conference where there is video enabled - Yes he can see the video cause the moment he joins the conference , he has entered where the organizer has the capability to show the video - that get passed to the attendees as well. 

    So even if you restrict a person from Video when he joins a video enabled conference he will still be able to see them. 

    If your ask is to disable a person completely from joining a conference , then as Eason said need to take his Audio/Video capability and only allow him to dial in.
