From the HOME PAGE, select Cameras; by pressing the “RED” Function Key on the
remote control you can move the camera, while pressing the other function keys you
can select different inputs (the same function can be achieved by pressing the remote
control key Input).
Note: The desired video source must be connected to the System inputs on the back of the
equipment beforehand. For a correct setup of the function keys, see the chapter “I/O
Connections”, section “Camera”.
During a connection it is also possible to control not only the local video camera’s
zoom and panning functions but also those of the remote camera (if enabled). Use the
remote control keys Far and Near to select remote or local camera.
Using the DVI-I IN
In the system rear panel there is a DVI-I input to connect a personal computer. For a
correct cabling, see the “cabling scheme”.
Correct use of the DVI-I implies that the video PC configuration has been set (setting:
screen→ properties) with one of the following picture frequency limits (or refresh
frequencies).

icon will be displayed in the local terminal.
Video Privacy :
• Once in connection.
To activate the Video Privacy function, press the video PRIVACY key on the remote control.
Local video will no longer be transmitted.
The

Administrator Settings
System
This menu contains the following configuration settings:
¾
¾
Date - time :
to set date and time values, or to enable and configure NTP server (internet Time) .
Location :
to set regional data for the terminal (country, country code, language, etc)
Note: the NTP server (Network Time Protocol) allows you to synchronize your system clock
to the clock in the network, allowing you to align with precision devices connected on the
Internet.
Calls
This menu contains the following configuration settings:
¾
Preferences :
In this section you can configure:
•
The maximum Rate for a call
•
Audio coding.
•
Video coding.
•
¾
A set of various functionalities, in order to have the system being compatible with old
systems.
Video Quality :
in this section you can configure some parameters related to video quality:
•
Error resilience – in case of packet loss (due for example to network congestion) allows
minimizing error, so making the codec much “stronger”.
•
Bandwidth adapting reduction – a bandwidth reduction request is sent to the
remote terminal, in case of packet loss.
•
Error strategies – To set the number of allowed line errors before video is frozen:
“Min Fluency”: stop video at the first occurred error,
“Max Fluency”: never stop video and allow errors through
•
Audio Delay Automatic – You can also synchronize audio with video. The audio
delay represents the value in milliseconds by which received audio is delayed.
In order to have perfect synchronization between audio and video, it is necessary to adjust
these parameters according to the connection type.
By selecting the check box (strongly recommended option), you allow this operation to be
performed automatically by the system. Alternatively, you can make manual adjustments
by moving the slider along the bar until you obtain the best synchronization.
39
¾
Encryption :
•
•
•
•
Accept protected calls
Enable Encryption – If encryption is activated, the System will use encryption in either
H.323 or H.320.
Unprotected calls – from this menu you can choose the policy the System will apply if
the remote terminal is not able to support protected calls.
Disconnect – The System will not allow connection with a remote terminal that does not
support encryption, and therefore automatically disconnects.
Ask Confirmation – During the session negotiation phase, the System will ask you to
confirm that you want to establish an unprotected call.
Inform – The System will inform you that you are about to establish an unprotected
connection by displaying a visual warning message.
State – The System will notify you that you are about to establish an unprotected call, and
once the connection is established an open padlock symbol will be displayed on the status
bar.
Length of AES Key (H.320 only)
From this drop-down menu you can choose (for H.320 connections only) three AES key
lengths:
128 bits
192 bits
256 bits
< Auto > (allows optimal choice according to the characteristics of the terminals negotiating
the videoconference session.)
Note: For an IP connection, the key length is always 128 bits.
•
Length of Prime DH Number (H.320 Only)
The encryption protocol requires the simultaneous exchange of a prime number and an
AES private key between terminals.
For H.320 calls you can choose between two prime number lengths:
High Security (length 1024 bits)
Very High Security (length 1536 bits)
Note: For IP calls, the System always uses the High Security option with a 1024-bit
length.
Most common video communication terminals normally use the High Security prime
number length and the 128-bit AES private key.

traffic. Moreover, once the ports have been opened, the protocols (TCP 1720
(Q.931), TCP 1503 (T.120), UDP 1719, and 1718 (RAS)) involved in a call must be
taken into account.
