iVIEW/NMS support
iVIEW/NMS integration allows remote monitoring, configuring, upgrading and control
features of SCOPIA XT1000 endpoints, using SNMP and an AT command-based protocol on
TCP/IP. In particular, the following features have been introduced.
•
Monitoring: NMS can request to endpoint identification and access capabilities.
•
Status traps: NMS is able to detect if the endpoint is turned on, and its call status.
•
Configuration and control: NMS is able to reboot the system, dial another endpoint and
configure general settings, H323 settings, SIP settings, Alert settings, Network settings,
and Video settings.
•
Mass configuration: it is possible to replicate the configuration from one XT1000 to
several others. The full configuration is replicated, thus also the configuration of
peripherals, such as monitors and cameras, and therefore should be used with caution.
•
Mass firmware upgrade
•
Agenda synchronization.
NOTE: when XT1000 is under iVIEW control, some parameters are fixed by the remote
management system, as Gatekeeper IP address and LDAP server address.
NOTE: when XT1000 is connected to an iView LDAP server, it is able to retrieve only a limited
number of contacts (300)
ISDN Peer to Peer
RADVISION | Release Notes
SCOPIA XT1000 | 3
When dialing an ISDN call from the SCOPIA XT1000 using a RADVISION Gateway, the user can
dial the ISDN number as it is, with no IP address or delimiters. This feature is available in
automatic mode when a RADVISION Gateway is present, with or without a gatekeeper.
User experience is the same as using an embedded board, in all possible network
configurations.
Figure 1. ISDN call
The rate used to place the ISDN call can also be chosen in the “Advanced options” call page.
Furthermore, the SCOPIA XT1000 can be configured to place ISDN calls using a generic ISDN
Gateway; in this case the service numbers offered by the Gateway must be manually
configured in Administrator settings->Calls-> ISDN section.
NOTE: multi-peer feature, enabling the gateway to connect with several XT1000 endpoints,
will be available soon. It will require an ISDN gateway software free upgrade.
SCOPIA XT1000 Desktop Client Support
The SCOPIA XT1000 can include an optional embedded MCU. The SCOPIA XT1000 MCU can be
used for SCOPIA Desktop meetings, instead of the Elite MCU. Two options are available in
RADVISION | Release Notes
SCOPIA XT1000 | 4
release 2.0: SCOPIA XT Desktop 4 ports or SCOPIA XT Desktop 9 ports.
To
o activate a SCOPIA XT Desktop 4 ports license, you must have an MCU 4 port license.
Similarly, to activate a SCOPIA XT Desktop 9 ports
port license, you must have an
n MCU 9 port
license.
Licenses available are as follows:
•
SCOPIA XT Desktop 4ports
•
SCOPIA XT Desktop 9ports
•
SCOPIA XT Desktop 4->9

upgrade
The supported Desktop clients connected to the XT100 MCU are as follows:
•
3 desktops on the MCU4
•
7 desktops on the MCU9
SCOPIA XT1000 Control
It is now be possible to control the SCOPIA XT1000 from the SCOPIA Control platform.
Figure 2. Example of SCOPIA Control GUI
The support includes:
•
Mute / un-mute
mute microphone
RADVISION | Release Notes
SCOPIA XT1000 | 5
•
Change volume of the speaker and mute
•
Toggle DND
•
Start / Stop presentation
•
Call controls
•
Camera controls
•
Endpoint status change notifications
Furthermore, the SCOPIA XT1000 communicates the identity of the remote peer to SCOPIA
Control. This information includes the vendor, product and version of the remote peer in
H323, if available. SCOPIA Control will detect if the remote peer is an Elite MCU, and
automatically manage it correctly; in this case it is possible to receive a presentation on
iPad during Dual Video conferencing.
SCOPIA Control requires a separate license.
SCOPIA XT1000 LAN/GLAN
Improved LAN routing available in version 2.0 enables using the SCOPIA XT1000’s LAN and
GLAN ports simultaneously, connecting each to a different networks (for example,
respectively public/private network), and easy realizing a simple firewall solution for small
networks.
Note that when the SCOPIA XT1000 is deployed in managed complex network scenarios and
is registered to a gatekeeper, the gatekeeper management policies will apply to both the
interfaces. Consult your IT manager for any routing problem that may arise.
The feature requires a separate license.
Standard Camera Sharpness
SCOPIA XT1000 Standard Camera provides High Resolution local Video, up to 1080p, with
optimal price/performances ratio. With particular monitors that automatically introduce
video enhancements, the camera can sometimes show noise or artifacts with low or
particular lighting conditions. To guarantee maximum performances in any lightening
condition, the Sharpness level of the SCOPIA XT1000 Standard Camera can now be fine
tuned.
The setting is available in the GUI Admin Settings -> I/O Connections -> Camera -> General,
and is available only for Standard Camera, not for Sony Camera.
Available sharpness levels are as follows:
RADVISION | Release Notes
SCOPIA XT1000 | 6
•
Low: softened image, reduced artifacts
•
Medium: default quality
•
High: enhance image details, artifacts can be more evident
MTU Setting
MTU setting may yield a major efficiency of the system, depending upon network
configuration. Default MTU is 1360; this value can be changed in the section Administrator
Settings->Network->GLAN|LAN->Parameters.
Max and min will depend on the selection of IPv4 or IPv6 option, and ranges are as follows:
IPv4 [576..1500], IPv6: [1280..1500].
NETLOG Support
NETLOG feature can be used to perform network packets capture and to produce diagnostic
log files, that can retrieved using a Web browser or can be transferred to an FTP server. Log
files are in standard libpcap capture format ( supported by the most common network
analysis tools).
Integrating with Other Components
The SCOPIA XT1000 version 2.0 includes significantly enhanced integration with the
RADVISION Solution. It is now fully integrated with:
•
SCOPIA iVIEW Management Suite
•
SCOPIA XT Desktop
•
SCOPIA Control
•
SCOPIA ISDN Gateway
Upgrading to this Release
Upgrading to version 2.0 requires a new license key. Starting from V 2.0, every time you
upgrade, the SCOPIA XT1000 reboots and then prompts you to enter a license key. Enter the
new upgrade license key and select the Enable License button.

Graphics is automatically removed after a few seconds in a call; it can be manually removed
at any time by pressing the key “C” on the remote control. Press the key “C” to bring back the
graphics again.
When in a call, pressing the key “?” on the remote control will show call status and diagnostics.
Pressing “?” again will show system information
Holding the key “?” for few seconds the system will display contextual help on the selected
item or the current menu.
To bring back the codec unit to the automatic monitor configuration press “layouts”, then press
“0” on the remote control. This shortcut applies only when no call is active.
To force the refresh frequency used for the Monitors, press “layouts”, then press “5” for 50 Hz
or “6” for 60 Hz on the remote control. This shortcut applies only when no call is active.
To personalize the remote control code, press together the “red “and “green” keys on the
remote control, then insert a two digit code [01..99]. Default code is 01. The remote control
code programmed in the remote control unit must match the setting in User Settings➠User
