Installation Guide

Installing the H.320 Expansion Card and Software

The product you purchased features Apple Media Conference, an application program you use to set up video conferences, collaborate with others, exchange live video and sound, and share information over a network. Apple

Media Conference takes advantage of the networking capability already built into your computer so you can connect with other video conferencing systems over a high-speed AppleTalk local area network, such as Ethernet.

In addition, you can use Apple Media Conference to communicate over an

ISDN wide area network. The product includes an H.320 expansion card that lets you connect your computer to an ISDN line and communicate with other video conferencing systems that comply with the H.320 international video conferencing standard.

About ISDN: An ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) line can carry more data than a standard phone line. You can send voice, data, and images simultaneously over a single ISDN line. An ISDN line offers high-quality voice communication and high-speed data communication.

Radio and television interference

The equipment described in this manual generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed and used properly—that is, in strict accordance with Apple’s instructions—it may cause interference with radio and television reception.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

You can determine whether your computer system is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the computer or one of the peripheral devices.

If your computer system does cause interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures: m Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops. m Move the computer to one side or the other of the television or radio. m Move the computer farther away from the television or radio. m Plug the computer into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio.

(That is, make certain the computer and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)

If necessary, consult an Apple-authorized service provider or Apple. See the service and support information that came with your Apple product. Or, consult an experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. You may find the following booklet helpful: Interference
