            Audio and video devices used by Skype for Business are the ones, which the RealTime Media Engine enumerated locally on the client side
            Skype for Business working in optimized way with RTME does not make any use of the Citrix HDX Audio and Citrix HDX Webcam devices redirected from the client to the VDA with the “traditional” Client Audio Mapping and Citrix HDX RealTime Video Compression techniques
