1.1 At a Glance
Camera
The built-in camera includes a high quality colour camera with a fast pan/tilt/zoom action. The
camera is
controlled by the system’s infra-red remote control and operates pan/tilt, focus and zoom.
Codec
The Codec is the heart of the system. The main task for the Codec is the compression of
outgoing video, audio
and data, the transmission of this information to a remote site and the decompression of the
incoming
information. Hence the name Codec. Intelligent Call Management (ICM) and the SoftMux are
features built into the
Codec.
Remote Control
The remote control is used to control all functions of the system. If the screen saver is
activated (black monitor), touching the remote control will automatically wake up the system.
The remote control uses 4 AAA batteries. The system will tell you when batteries are running
low. Change batteries from the backside of the remote control.
The reach of the remote control signal is 20 meters. For users sitting in an open plan office,
this can cause problems. Use the little, white switch placed under the batteries to change the
reach of the signal from 20 meters to 2 meters. This will prevent you from unintentionally
controlling your neighbor's video system, when you control your own system.

1 Introduction
Table microphone
The high quality table microphone is designed to use on a table during a videoconference.
You can connect up to three microphones. The ideal location for the microphone is on a flat
surface at least 2m (6.5 ft) from the front of the system. The microphone cable should always
point towards the system. The system will automatically equalize sound levels. Loud and soft
voices are picked up and transmitted to the far end at approximately the same level.

29
TANDBERG 770_880_990MXP User Manual
Call Type
Call Type can be set to Video Call (default) or Telephone Call. Using
Video, the system will try to connect as a video call. Some network
configurations will cause the fallback to a telephone call to fail. In these
cases, you should set the call type to telephone and the call will be placed
as a telephone type only. For MultiSite calls, Call Type enables you to
specify both telephone calls and video calls in the same conference.
Network
The Network alternatives are: Auto, ISDN and H.323 (LAN). The system
will, by default, try to connect using Auto Network. That means that the
system will automatically use the right network depending on the number
you have dialed.
If Auto is selected, the system will select a network based upon the
following criteria:
 If an IP-address (e.g. 10.12.34.56 ) is entered, H.323 (LAN) is
selected.
 If the first digits in the number match those set in H.323 Prefix
under H.323 Settings, LAN is selected.
 In other cases, ISDN (H.320) is selected.
If you need to ensure that you make an H.323 or ISDN call, specify this by
choosing H.323 or ISDN. ISDN indicates ISDN-BRI, ISDN-PRI, Leased
E1/T1 and External Networks. If a gatekeeper is present, you may place
IP-calls using “telephone-style” numbers (an E.164 alias), according to the
numbering plan implemented in the gatekeeper. The gatekeeper will then
translate the dialed number into an IP-address (see chapter 4.8.2.2 H.323
Settings for more information about gatekeepers).
Bandwidth
Bandwidth decides the quality of the video picture. The system will, by
default, connect using Auto Bandwidth. This means that the system will
establish a connection using a proper bandwidth for your call. If a call is
added or dropped during a meeting, the call will automatically maintain the
optimal connection without interrupting the call in progress. This is called
downspeeding. The system regulates the bandwidth according to how
many calls that are in the conference.
The typical bandwidths used for ISDN and IP calls are 384kbps and
768kbps respectively. When bandwidth is set to auto, the unit will default
to 384kbps for ISDN calls and 768kbps for IP calls. When downspeeding is
enabled, the system will automatically adjust to a lower speed if the
receiver can not handle the default bandwidth. See table below for more
information about the different bandwidths.
Restrict
(56k)
A restricted call is a call that uses 56kbps channels rather then the default
unrestricted 64kbps channels. Some older networks (primarily in the USA)
do not support 64kbps channels and require the use of restricted 56kbps
calls. By default the system will dial an unrestricted call and downspeed to
56kbps if necessary. To force a restricted call, choose Restrict (56k) On.
An indicator “(56k)” will be shown beside the number.
Use Set as
Default
If you want to change the default Call Settings, make the desired changes
to the Call Settings and Press Set as Default. Press OK to Save. These
settings will now be the default settings for all future manually dialed calls.

H.221 or 2x64 (2x56) Calling
Some older or low end video systems do not have the ability to make bonded ISDN calls. In
these cases you may have to dial both ISDN numbers separately to call those systems.
These types of calls are often referred to as H.221 calls, 2x64 calls, or 2x56 calls, as you are
making 2 x 64 kbps or 2 x 56 kbps calls to the same system. To place this type of call, set
bandwidth to 128 kbps and Network to ISDN. A field for 2nd number pops up in Call Settings.
Enter the first number in the call menu and the second number in the Call Settings field. For
128 kbps calls that use bonding, ignore the second number field and just enter one number to
be dialed.
Using sub-address / extension address / MCU password
Sub-address is used to address different systems on the same ISDN line and is primarily
used in European Countries. TCS-4 is used to address different systems on a LAN, when
dialing in via a gateway.
To specify an ISDN sub-address or its LAN equivalent extension address (TCS-4), add a star
(*) after the number and then enter the sub-address/extension address.
Example:
12345678*10
( <number>*<Sub-address/extension address/MCU password>)
When calling to external MCU’s requiring a password (TSC-1), this password can be added
after the star (*). If no password is specified, a menu will prompt you to enter the password
(after connecting to the MCU).

 Dial the ISDN number of the system. All sites can dial the same number.
To dial in to the MultiSite on ISDN-BRI:
51
TANDBERG 770_880_990MXP User Manual
 The MultiSite has specific numbers for each call that participates in the conference.
To find the dial-in numbers for the MultiSite, choose Information from the main menu
and open System Information from the bottom menu line.
 Site 2 must dial MultiSite Number 2.
 Site 3 must dial MultiSite Number 3.
 Site 4 must dial MultiSite Number 4.
 And so forth
Receiving calls to a MultiSite
When the MultiSite receives incoming calls you can accept or reject it. Pressing the green key
is equivalent to pressing Accept. Pressing the red key is equivalent to pressing Reject.
End a MultiSite Call
Ending a MultiSite Call is not very different from ending a normal point-to-point call. Use the
red key on the remote control or End Call from the main menu. The end call menu lists all the
calls that participate in the conference. To end a single call, select the call, press OK or the
red key on the remote control. To end all calls, press the End All Calls button in the menu.
Duo Video in MultiSite calls
In a MultiSite call, the MultiSite can transmit the Duo Video and/or H.329 to the other
participants that support Duo Video and/or H.329. This means that any participant can send
Duo Video and the MultiSite will transmit it to the other participants. The participants that do
not support Duo Video or H.329 will only receive Main Video.
Bandwidth for MultiSite calls
If the MultiSite system does not have enough bandwidth to add another site, the system will
automatically downspeed to allow an additional site to be added to the conference. Be aware
of that Far End must support downspeeding and must have enough bandwidth.
Downspeeding can be time consuming. In order to optimize connection time, use low
bandwidth in the first call.
Example: The system has 512 kbps available and you want to connect 3 sites in addition
to the host.
1. Begin the first call with Auto. As you add more participants with Auto Call Settings,
bandwidths will downspeed. This is the simplest way to establish a MultiSite call,
but downspeeding will lengthen the connection time.
2. To save time, specify 128 kbps for the calls. The system will end up with 4x128
kbps = 512 kbps.
The video calls in a conference do not have to use the same bandwidth. If you have
enough bandwidth available, you can use 128 kbps on one call, while 384 kbps or any
other bandwidth on another call in the same MultiSite conference.
MultiSite supports both Voice Switched and Split Screen mode (see chapter 3.12.2 MultiSite
Layout for more about Layouts). The system has Auto Split as default picture mode.
Mix ISDN/LAN
A conference can consist of any combination of ISDN/IP sites.
MultiSite cascading
52
3 General Use
By connecting MultiSite systems together, it is possible to connect even more sites in a
cascaded MultiSite (see example below). All connections can use any combination of
ISDN/IP. The host can connect up to 5 other video systems with MultiSite functionality. The
cascaded systems can connect to 4 other video sites. These systems will automatically run
Voice Switched mode and transmit a full screen image to the host. In this case you get 20
participants in the cascaded MultiSite conference.

How to view streaming from a PC:
1. After streaming is started, an easy way to view the streamed audio/video is to start
your Web browser and enter the IP-address of the streaming system.
2. After the Web page of the system is shown, click on Streaming. Alternatively, enter
http://<codec ip-address>/stream.sdp
Streaming Settings
Address
Address is defined as the IP-address of a streaming client,
streaming server or a multicast address. Giving an address in the
range 224.0.0.1-239.255.255.255 will broadcast the stream to any
host that has joined the specified multicast group. Specifying normal
broadcast address 255.255.255.255 will broadcast to any members
on the LAN.
Address Port
If several codec’s are streaming to the same IP-address, different
ports have to be used in order for the client to know which stream to
receive. If the first codec streams on port 2240 and the second
codec on port 2250, the client has to specify which port to listen to.
Video is transmitted on the specified port; audio is transmitted on the
port number 4 above the specified video port, in this case 2244 and
2254.
TTL/Router
Hops
This is used for streaming data to limit how many routers the data
should pass before it is rejected. If TTL is set to 2, data will not
traverse more than 2 router hops.

 Off: No announcement packets will be transmitted.
Video Rate
Defines the Video streaming rate from the system. Range is 16 kbps
- 320 kbps. In addition, audio (G.711) streaming rate is 64 kbps,
providing a maximum streaming rate of 384 kbps.
Streaming
Password
Set password so that only participants entering correct password will
be able to view the streaming session. Entering a password will
prevent unauthorized people from accessing the streaming session.
3.13.3 Far End Control
It is possible to get some control of the far end system. This means that you can control your

camera for Preset 7?
57
TANDBERG 770_880_990MXP User Manual
The camera position stored at Preset 7 must be related to Microphone 1. Therefore all
participants who are located closest to Mic1 should be included in the Preset 7 camera
position etc. When camera tracking is activated and a person close to Mic1 speaks, Preset
7 will be automatically selected.
When activating another video source (for instance document camera), camera tracking will
be temporarily disabled until you re-select Main Camera or a Main Camera Preset.
The camera tracking speeds may be altered in the Video Settings menu in Administrator
Settings, see chapter 4.6.1 Camera Tracking Mode for further details.

Mic 1- 2 and Audio input 3-4
By default, all inputs are enabled. Just plug in an audio source and it is active. Audio inputs
that are On will automatically be mixed. Unconnected inputs will automatically be muted.
Select Off to prevent audio/noise from connected but unused inputs. The activated audio
sources are stored on camera presets.
Mic 1 and 2 are intended for electret type microphones. The microphone inputs are balanced
with 24V phantom power.
Audio input 3 (AUX) is intended for connection to external playback devices or to telephone
add-on hybrids. As there is no acoustic echo canceller on this input it should not be
connected to any microphones. The audio source connected to this input will be heard from
the local speaker as well.
Audio input 4 (VCR) is intended for connection to a VCR or DVD player. It can also be
connected to other external playback devices. As there is no acoustic echo canceller on this
input it should not be connected to any microphones. The audio entering this input will be
heard from the local speaker as well. If Auto is selected, the audio from the VCR will only be

The adjustment of each microphone signal is done automatically to obtain the
best possible audio and minimize the background noise.
Fixed
Fixed will maintain a constant weighting of all microphones.
VCR Ducking
If VCR Ducking is activated, the VCR audio level will be attenuated if someone talks into the
microphone or at the far end.
Level Settings
It is possible to adjust the audio input levels according to which external audio equipment is
connected. The on-screen audio level indicator will make it easier to set the correct input level
settings. The input level should be adjusted so that the average level reaches the preferred
level marker. The audio inputs are adjustable in steps of 1.5 dB from 0 dB to 22.5 dB.
The default levels for Mic 1 and 2 are set for use with an Audio Technica AT871R or AT841R
microphone in an average videoconferencing room. The gain can be adjusted correctly for a
wide range of microphones.
A few examples of microphone levels are:

VCRs or DVDs) will work.
4.5.2 Outputs
Audio out 1 - 2
Audio out 1 is intended for connection to televisions or audio amplifiers.
Audio out 2 is intended for connection to a VCR or other recording equipment. The signal is a
mix of audio from far end and local end (not from Audio in 4).
Note that audio out 2 never should be connected to a loudspeaker placed in the same room
as the microphones connected to the system. This will cause “howling” and possible damage
to the speaker system. If an output is Off, no audio will be sent to that output.
Out 1 Mode

4 Administrator Settings
If Out 1 Mode is set to Auto, the system will select analog or digital (SPDIF) mode dependent
on the detected Audio Module. If a TANDBERG Digital NAM is detected, SPDIF mode will be
selected, otherwise analog mode will be selected.
Setting the Out 1 Mode to either Analog or SPDIF will override the auto-detected mode.
Audio Module
Select Audio Module according to the type of Audio Module installed if this is not
automatically detected. The Audio Module setting is only available if the audio module of the
system is unidentified.
Level Settings
Adjust the audio output levels according to the parameters of the external audio equipment
connected. These levels should only be adjusted when installing new audio equipment. The
default settings are correct for the TANDBERG Digital Natural Audio module and for most
consumer electronics devices (televisions, VCRs, etc.). The volume keys on the remote
control adjust the level of output 1 (the speaker output). The volume control has no effect on
other outputs.
4.5.3 Echo Control
Mic 1-2 and Audio 3
Each of the 2 microphone inputs and Audio input 3 has a separate acoustic echo canceller.
One echo canceller per input provides more sophisticated control than having one common
canceller for all microphones.
In addition to echo cancellation, the system has built-in noise reduction (NR). NR reduces
constant background noise (e.g. noise from air-conditioning systems, cooling fans etc.). In
addition, a high pass filter (Humfilter) reduces very low frequency noise.
On:
Echo control is normally set to On to prevent the far end from hearing their
own audio. Once selected, echo cancellation is active at all times. The echo
canceller continuously adjusts itself to the audio characteristics of the room
and compensates for any changes it detects in the audio environment. If the
changes in the audio conditions are very significant the echo canceller may
take a second or two to re-adjust.
Off:
You can choose to switch off the echo canceller for the available audio
sources. Echo Control should be switched Off if external echo cancellation or
playback equipment is used.
On+NR:
Activates both Echo Control and Noise Reduction.
Note that it is your echo canceller that improves the audio quality experienced by the other
site. When you hear an echo of your own audio it is most likely the far end’s echo
canceller that is malfunctioning.
83
TANDBERG 770_880_990MXP User Manual
Tips for improving the echo canceller performance:
 Place all microphones as far as possible from the loudspeaker. Minimum
loudspeaker-microphone distance should be 2 meters.
 It is recommended to place the microphones between 1 and 2 meters away from the
persons speaking. By using several microphones, the ratio distance loudspeaker-tomic/mic-to-speaker can be increased. Increasing this ratio improves the echo
canceller performance.
 Place all microphones as far as possible from noise sources.
 Reduce the volume setting. Ensure that the loudspeaker does not distort the audio.
 The echo canceller tries to estimate the echo path from the speaker system to the
microphones. Moving objects change this path, therefore try to avoid moving objects.
Be especially aware of large objects and objects placed close to either the
microphone or the speaker system as these objects will cause severe changes to the
echo path.
 Avoid putting paper sheets etc. on the microphone.
 Avoid moving the microphone or loudspeaker.
 In the presence of low frequency noise, enable the noise reduction (NR).
4.5.4 Stereo Settings
Stereo Input mode (stereo audio)
If stereo Input mode is activated, audio input 3 and 4 will behave as a stereo input pair. The
VCR Ducking and AGC setting for audio input 4 will in this case apply to both audio input 3
and 4.
If Stereo Input Mode is off, Audio out 2 will be a mix of audio input 3, microphones and the far
end (mono or left+right). If Stereo Input Mode is on, Audio out 2 will be a mix of the
microphones and the far end (mono or left+right).
Note that you are able to receive stereo through Audio out 1 (S/PDIF) independent of this
setting.
4.5.5 Audio Leveling (AGC)
On
Select On to allow automatic adjustments (Automatic Gain Control) of audio
levels. When On, the AGC maintains the audio signal level at a fixed value by
attenuating strong signals and amplifying weak signals. Very weak signals, i.e.
noise alone, will not be amplified.
Off
Audio leveling is not activated.
Note that to ensure correct behavior of the AGC, it is crucial that the levels on the input
connectors are adjusted correctly using the audio input level settings. The AGC will not
compensate for severe maladjustment of input levels.
When applying a weak signal in the presence of strong background noise, the AGC might
amplify the background noise as well as the signal. Therefore, in noisy environments, it is
advisable to turn the AGC off.
84
4 Administrator Settings
Example:
In most conferences, the participants will speak at different levels, and be at different
distances from the microphones. As a result, some of the participants would be harder to
hear than others. The AGC corrects this problem by automatically increasing the
microphone levels when “quiet” or “distant” people speak, and by decreasing the
microphone levels when “louder” people speak.
4.5.6 Alert Tones and Volume
Video Call Alert Tone and Telephone Alert Tone
To help distinguish between incoming video calls and ordinary telephone calls, it is
recommended to use different ringing tones for video calls and telephone calls.
Alert Volume
You may change the volume level for the selected ringing tone.
Alert Speaker
The system also has an internal, call-alerting speaker.
On
The internal speaker will warn you of an incoming call even though the monitor
may not be switched on.
Off
The internal speaker is switched off.
Key Sound
On
There will be a sound indicator when pressing keys on the remote control.
Off
There will be no sound when pressing keys on the remote control.

NAT
NAT, Network Address Translation, is used in small LAN’s, often home offices, when a PC
and a videoconferencing system is connected to a router with NAT support. NAT support in
the videoconferencing system enables proper exchange of audio/video data when connected
to an external videoconferencing system (when the IP traffic goes through an NAT router).
When NAT is On, the NAT Server Address will be shown in the startup-menu: "My IP
Address: 10.0.2.1 (NAT)".
NAT Address
This must be the external/global IP-address to the router with NAT support. Packets sent to
the router will then be routed to the codec. In the router, the following ports must be routed to

PRI Red Alarm
Red alarm or Loss of signal (LOS) means that there is no signal and thus no framing info
received (this has same effect as pulling out the PRI cable).
PRI Yellow Alarm
Yellow alarm or Remote Alarm Indicator (RAI) means that the system is receiving framing
info, but in this framing info the other side tells the system that it is not reading the system’s
transmitted framing info. Typically, this may be a broken connector in the TX part of the
system PRI cable. This could also indicate weak or noisy signal in the TX part of the system
PRI cable.
PRI Blue Alarm
Blue alarm means that network on the far side of the CSU is unavailable.
Example:
The system is connected via a CSU (i.e. a NT ‘Network Termination’) as follows:

If a CSU loses framing/sync from the network (example: a bad cable B), it shall no
longer send valid framing out on cable A towards the system. Instead it transmits "Blue
Alarm". Seen from a system receiving blue alarm, this means that the network on the
far side of the CSU is unavailable.
4.9.4 System Selftest
The system performs a check to determine internal hardware integrity. System Selftest is
useful when you want to check if your network connection is active.

6.4 Appendix 4
Environmental considerations
This section explains how to carry out basic adjustments and simple tests to ensure that you
send and receive the best possible image and audio quality when using your system.
Iris control and lighting
By default the system camera will use an automatic iris to compensate for changes in lighting.
In addition to this feature, you may further assist the system to maintain the best possible
image quality by paying special attention to environmental lighting and background colors as
described below. Remember the system will send live images of yourself and your immediate
surroundings.
 Avoid direct sunlight on the subject matter i.e. yourself, the background or onto the
camera lens as this will create harsh contrasts.
 If light levels are too low you may need to consider using artificial lighting. As
described above, direct illumination of the subject matter and camera lens should be
avoided.
 When using artificial lighting, daylight type lamps will produce the most effective
results. Avoid colored lighting.
 Indirect light from shaded sources or reflected light from pale walls often produces
excellent results.
 Avoid harsh side lighting or strong light from above. Strong sunlight from a window or
skylight may put part or all of the subject matter in shadow or cause silhouetting.
 If you still have problems with the iris and lighting, manual adjustment of the camera
parameters might help – see Video Settings menu.
 Dim scenes can also be improved by manually adjusting the camera brightness
setting.
Background
The appearance of the picture background is very important but easily overlooked. It is
important to remember that the camera also shows what is behind you when in a
videoconference. To ensure a suitable background we recommend you consider the
following:
 Use a neutrally colored background with a medium contrast and a soft texture, e.g. a
plain curtain with no heavy patterns or strong colors that may adversely tint the whole
scene.
 Avoid moving backgrounds such as curtains blowing in a draught, moving objects, or
people walking behind as this may both reduce image quality and distract the
attention of the calling party.
 Do not place the camera facing a doorway.
Loudspeaker volume
The audio system will use the Digital Natural Audio Module (DNAM). The volume of the audio
system is controlled by the Volume Control keys on the system remote control.
125
TANDBERG 770_880_990MXP User Manual
6.5 Appendix 5
Guidelines for setting up videoconferencing rooms
The following are a set of guidelines to consider when either building a videoconferencing
room, or using an existing room for videoconferencing.
Lighting:
 Low Contrast desired for light
intensity. No dark spots.
 Intensity @ table 800 - 1400 Lux
as measured with an Incident light
meter.
 Block sunlight from entering room.
Seating Area (Table):
 Should allow all participants to see
Monitors.
 Should allow camera to “see” all
participants.
 Non-shiny non-patterned
preferably light grey surface (if
table used).
Audio:
 Noise Floor preferred less than
44dBC.
 Reverb Time 0,3 to 0,5 sec.
Ventilation:
 Keep in mind Noise Floor.
 Velocity = Noise. Therefore keep
velocity of air low.
Room:
 Should be located away from
noise.
 Should not have windows.
 Doors should be located off
camera.
Walls:
 Color: Generally high contrast
color desired. Light blue is
commonly used.
 Acoustically reflective surfaces
(such as glass or concrete) should
be covered with curtains or sound
treatment.
How to prepare a typical room for videoconferencing:
The diagram below shows a typical room designed to obtain the best results when using the
system.
126
6 Appendix
The microphone should be placed at the front of the table to ensure that all speech will be
detected. The best position for the microphone is at least 2 meters (6.5 feet) in front of the
system on a plain, flat table with at least 0.3 meters (12 inches) of table in front of the
microphone.
The document camera should be close to the chair person or a designated controller of the
document camera for ease of use (remember to arrange all the peripherals so that one
participant can reach each of them to point, change the display, tape, and so forth).
The camera supports up to 15 pre-stored camera positions.
The illustration shows three possible camera positions; one for all the participants, one for the
whiteboard and one for the main speaker. The remaining camera presets are then available
for other peripheral equipment, for example a VCR.
Position the system in such a way as to avoid the possibility of somebody inadvertently
walking into the camera’s field of view when entering the room. Other than the conference
participants, there should be no moving items in the sent image.

By setting an IP Access Password on the system, all access to the system using IP (Telnet,
FTP and WEB) requires a password. This password can be enabled from telnet or dataport
using the command: ippassword <ip-password>. The default IP password is "TANDBERG".
130
6 Appendix
To remove this password, use the command: "ippassword ”. From telnet, this is only possible
by first entering the correct password.
Services
The different IP services on the system - FTP, Telnet, Telnet Challenge, HTTP, HTTPS,
SNMP and H.323 can be disabled to prevent access to the system. By using the commands
below, the services can be independently enabled/disabled:
services <telnet/telnet challenge/ftp/http/https/h323/remote-parameter/remote-software>
<enable/disable>
services <snmp> <read-only/enable/disable>
services <telnetchallenge> <enable/disable> [port]
SNMP Security alert
This function will notify any Management Application (such as TMS - TANDBERG
Management Suite) if anyone tries to perform Remote Management on the system using an
illegal password. The Security alert that is sent to the Management Application will contain
information about the IP address and the service (WEB, Telnet, FTP) being used for the
attempt. If TMS is used, email notifications or alarms about the attempt can be sent to
specified persons.
Encryption
All TANDBERG systems support both AES and DES encryption. By default this feature is
enabled such that when connecting with any other video system or MCU, a TANDBERG
system will attempt to establish a secure conference using AES or DES encryption. The
TANDBERG system will attempt this for both IP and ISDN connections. Where a remote
system or MCU supports encryption, the highest common encryption algorithm will be
selected on a port-by-port basis.
The type and status of the encryption negotiated is indicated by padlock symbols and onscreen messages. Encryption on the TANDBERG systems is fully automatic, and provides
clear security status indicators;
 An open padlock indicates that encryption is being initialized, but the conference is
not yet encrypted.
 Single padlock indicates DES encryption.
 Double padlock indicates AES encryption.
In addition to on-screen indicators the Call Status menu provides two information fields
regarding call encryption. The first field is the Encryption Code, which will identify either AES
or DES. The second field is the Encryption Check Code and is comprised of an alphanumeric
string. This string will be the same for systems on either side of an encrypted conference. If
the Check Codes do not match, this would indicate that the call has been exposed to a Man
In The Middle attack.
When a system with MultiSite functionality hosts a conference, the highest possible
encryption algorithm will be negotiated on a site-by-site basis. MultiSite conferences can
therefore support a mix of AES and DES encrypted endpoints in the same conference. A
conference will only be as secure as its weakest link. Even though conference participants
may have negotiated and are running AES encryption, if just one participant has negotiated
DES encryption, the AES system will display the single padlock symbol to advise all users of
the lowest encryption mechanism currently in effect.
All systems supporting DES encryption can upgrade to AES encryption. Please contact your
TANDBERG representative for more information. The standards supporting the encryption
mechanisms employed by TANDBERG are: AES, DES, H.233, H234 and H.235 (H235v3 &
v2 for backwards compatibility) with extended Diffie Hellman key distribution via H.320, H.323
and Leased Line connections.

Multiple Camera support:
The figure below is an example of how multiple cameras should be connected:
Ethernet:
To connect the system to a LAN, use the Ethernet cable provided by TANDBERG (or a
standard Ethernet cable). If no LAN is available and the codec is connected directly to a
computer, use a crossover cable.
The crossover cable specification is:
If such a connection is needed, the system and the PC must use ‘static’ TCP/IP settings
because no DHCP server is controlling the small “LAN”, which has been created between the
computer and the system. When configuring a back-to-back connection between the PC and
the system, make sure both static IP addresses exist on the same subnet.
BRI ISDN Interface:
To connect the system to BRI, use the ISDN cable provided by TANDBERG (or a standard
BRI cable).

Cisco CallManager registration
Configuring an H.323 client on the CallManager 4.0
The registration of a H.323 client in CallManager is supported on the CallManager (CCM) 4.0
software and forward.
1. To configure the CallManager with an H.323 client, log on to the administration web
interface and go to the phone configuration page.
2. The Phone configuration page is located on: device (top menu) -> Add a New device
-> Phone -> H.323 Client.
3. In the phone configuration page type the IP address of the TANDBERG system in the
Device name field, select device pool and push the insert button.
4. A pop-up box will now appear on the screen and ask you if you would like to
configure the directory number. Push the ok button.
5. You should now see the Directory Number Configuration WEB page. Enter the
E.164/phone number of your TANDBERG system in the Directory number field, and
in the “Forward and Pickup Settings” enter the time of “No Answer Ring Duration”.
The time selected has to have a value from 1 to 300 seconds.
6. Push the Add button to update the CallManager with the directory number settings.
You have now configured the CallManager with a H.323 client and should be able to register
the TANDBERG system to it.When the TANDBERG system is registered to a CallManager, it
will be possible to place and receive calls from this system to any other video and voice
systems that are registered on the same CallManager.

6.10 Appendix 10
Diagnostic Tools for IP
To use these tools, will require using a PC and setting up a telnet session towards the
system.
Q.931
To show Q.931 trace during a call you need to issue the command ‘syslog on’.One can get
traces for RAS, Q.931 and H.245 with this command. It is a complex trace and requires an
extensive knowledge in H.323 signalling to be understood.
Ping
Ping is used to see if the system is able to reach a specific IP-address, using a mechanism in
IP called ICMP. If the system is unable to register to its gatekeeper, or if it is unable to dial a
specific endpoint, one can use ping to see if there is at least an IP-route to the gatekeeper or
to the endpoint. In case you have problems, one would first ping the default gateway, then the
gatekeeper, and then the other endpoint.
Traceroute
Traceroute does exactly that; it traces the route an IP-packet takes to reach its destination
and displays all router hops. Traceroute is very useful for seeing exactly where there is a
routing-problem in the IP-network, and for checking where transport-delay is introduced.
Layer 4 Ports used in H.323 calls
The layer 4 ports used by the system in a H.323 call can be defined as follows:
 Dynamic: The ports are allocated at random from 2048 to 65535.
 Static: Will use the predefinded layer 4 ports listed in the tables below.
137
TANDBERG 770_880_990MXP User Manual
(*) Note: While using MultiSite, if a site is disconnected and reconnected without terminating
the entire conference, the next site to be connected will have a H.245 port outside of the
specified range. If this functionality is required through a firewall, the range of TCP ports can
be extended past 5564. However, if a site is disconnected and reconnected, without ending
the conference enough times one can quickly end up outside of this range again.
