Navigating the User Interface
When your Avaya system is idle, a screen saver appears on the display, or the screen is
black. An incoming call or pressing any button on the remote control automatically invokes
the system.
The Main Screen
Use the arrow keys on the remote control to navigate the main screen. As you navigate to
different parts of the screen, the icons and their descriptions that appear in the navigation
bar change to indicate what actions are available for a selected object or screen.
The main screen includes the following features:
•
The top right corner of the screen displays system information such as the system
name, and video number. This information is hidden during a call.
•
Video from the primary input, typically a camera connected to the system, appears in a
small window below the system information.
•
The center of the screen contains the REDIAL list and the Voice Call and Video Call
buttons. From the REDIAL list you can place a call by selecting a number from a list of
recently dialed numbers. Use the Voice Call and Video Call buttons to dial a number
manually.
•
The system status bar is a white bar that appears immediately below the REDIAL list.
The system status bar indicates system and network status, including the number of
voice and video calls, the time and date, or the duration of a call when a call is in

150 using the remote control. To prevent far end users from controlling your near end
camera during a call, contact your administrator. Avaya Video Camera 100 does not support
camera control.

Left and right arrows pan the camera.
Up and down arrows tilt the camera.
Zoom in and zoom out keys make objects appear closer or farther
away.
Configuring Avaya Video Camera 150 Presets
A camera preset is a predefined camera position that is associated with a numeric key on
the remote control. Camera presets enable you to quickly change the position of the near
end PTZ camera during a call by pressing a single key on the remote control instead of
using the arrow and zoom keys. Far end participants see the video image without the delay
that is associated with using more than one key to position the camera.
You can configure and use presets in the Primary Input and Presentation Input screens
before placing a call and from any video screen during a call. To configure and use presets
during a call, you must first select Presets from the Call Manager screen. For more
information about using presets during a call, refer to “Using Avaya Video Camera 150
Presets During a Call” on page 24.
You can save nine presets. When presets are available for use, icons for the numeric keys
(0 through 9) followed by the word Presets appear in the navigation bar.
Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
11
Configuring presets before placing a call ensures that you can quickly change the near end
camera position during the call. To configure a preset for the near end camera before
placing a call, follow these steps:
1. Select the near end camera and adjust its position. Refer to “Controlling Avaya Video
Camera 150s” on page 10.
2. Press and hold a numeric key (1 through 9) on the remote control until you hear a beep.
The current position of the camera is associated with the key. Preset x saved, where x
is the numeric key associated with the preset, appears above the status bar.
If you choose a numeric key that already has a preset configured, it is overwritten. An
administrator can lock existing presets to prevent them from being overwritten. If an
existing preset associated with the key is locked, Preset x locked appears on the
screen. The 0 key, when used as a preset, always moves the selected camera to the
default position and cannot be overwritten.
3. To test the preset, use the arrow keys to move the camera to a different position, and
press the numeric key associated with the preset to move the camera to the preset
position. Preset x, where x is the numeric key associated with the preset, appears
above the status bar.
Managing Near End Video Quality
Before you place a call, examine the near end video image from the camera connected to
your Avaya system. If the image flickers, colors appear unbalanced, or the image appears
too dark, you may need to adjust the room lighting or camera settings. For more information,
refer to “Adjusting Room Lighting” on page 30 and “Camera Issues” on page 31.
Placing a Call
You can place a video or voice call with your Avaya system in the following ways:
•
Select a stored number from the REDIAL list on the main screen or from the directory.
•
Manually dial a number using the Video Call or Voice Call buttons on the main screen
12
Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
Placing a Call from the REDIAL List
The REDIAL list on the main screen stores up to 15 recently dialed numbers. A scroll bar
appears when more than five entries are available for selection. The oldest entry in the list is
automatically removed when the system receives a call after the maximum number of
entries has been reached.
The last call placed always appears at the top of the list. The entry includes the name of the
system called and an icon that indicates whether the call was a voice
or video
call.
The entry’s number (and bandwidth if the entry is a video call) appears below the list when
the entry is selected. If the system receives a call, but does not answer it, the call appears in
the REDIAL list as a missed call. The
symbol appears next to the name in the entry.
Select the entry to display the date and time of the missed call below the REDIAL list.
To place a call from the REDIAL list, use the arrow keys on the remote control to select an
entry and press OK.
To change the bandwidth for a video call on the REDIAL list before placing the call, select
Video Call on the main screen, press OK twice, and use the right arrow key to select the
desired bandwidth from the list.
Note:
Selecting Auto from the Video Call selection before placing a call does not change
the bandwidth selection for an entry on the REDIAL list that does not have Auto as
its last called bandwidth.
You can adjust the maximum number of entries that appear in the REDIAL list by adjusting
the Maximum Redial Entries preference in User Preferences : Calls.
The None option for the Maximum Redial Entries preference removes existing entries from
the REDIAL list and prevents new entries from appearing on the list.
You can also add entries from the REDIAL list to the local directory and manually remove
entries or lock them to prevent them from being automatically removed when the maximum
number of entries is reached. For more information, refer to “Managing the REDIAL List” on
page 26.

Hierarchies are predefined organizational units similar to folders or directories on a
computer system. You can place an entry into a hierarchy when you create the entry or
at any time by editing the Hierarchy field when editing the entry. For more information
about creating hierarchies, refer to “Managing the Directory” on page 28. Using the
hierarchical method, you can select a hierarchy in the Browse column to locate an

Adjusting Volume
To adjust the volume in a call, use the
button on the remote control. You can also adjust
the active microphone volume, or the treble and bass levels for audio out by adjusting
preferences in User Preferences : Audio.
Volume preferences for audio inputs appear with a bar graph audio meter next to the slider.
The audio meter expands below the slider when you select the slider and press OK on the
remote control.
The audio meter displays the level of the transmitted voice. The meter is calibrated in
decibels (dB) RMS below digital full scale (DFS). The meter is accurate to ± 1 dB.
•
A level of 0 dB is the maximum.
•
Levels below –50 dB are not displayed, and indicate a very quiet or inactive input.
•
Typical levels during a call peak around –28 to –22 dB DFS. The AEC (Acoustic Echo
Canceller) and AGC (Automatic Gain Control) In Avaya 1010/1020 attempt to keep the
RMS transmit level below –20 dB DFS.
To set the level for your audio input, position someone the same distance from the
microphone as participants would be in the room during a video conference and have them
speak at a normal volume. Green bars indicate an acceptable setting at normal speaking
volume. Yellow bars are acceptable if you are shouting or speaking loudly. Avoid settings
that produce red bars in the audio meter.
Avaya recommends a volume setting of 5 to 8 for most Avaya Video MicPod 1000
applications. Avaya recommends a volume setting of 5 to 10 for most Avaya Video Camera
100 applications. Use the meter to visually verify that the transmit level peaks in the desired
-28 to -22 dB range.
When the user interface is visible during a call, a volume meter for the active microphone
appears in the near video image next to the dominant speaker icon.
Muting the Active Microphone
Pressing the mute
button on the remote control or Avaya Video MicPod 1000 mutes the
active microphone. When the near side active microphone is muted in a call, the
symbol appears.

Troubleshooting
The following sections describe symptoms, possible causes, and potential solutions for
common problems you may encounter with your Avaya system.
When experiencing a problem, visually inspect the unit. Ensure the system has not been
exposed to water or heat sources or appears physically damaged.
Improperly connected or loose cables are common causes of problems with hardware units.
When investigating a system problem, first inspect all the external controls and cable
connections. Ensure that connections are correct and secure, and that nothing is obstructing
the cables. Contact your administrator for information about proper cabling.
Adjusting Room Lighting
You can assist the system to maintain the best possible image quality by altering the
environmental lighting and background colors of your environment. If light levels are too low
you may consider adding artificial lighting. Indirect light from shaded sources or reflected
light from pale walls often produces excellent results.
Avoid the following:
•
direct sunlight on the subject matter, the background, or the camera lens which creates
harsh contrasts
•
direct illumination of the subject matter and camera lens
•
colored lighting
•
harsh side lighting or strong light from above
You can also improve dim scenes by adjusting the camera brightness. Refer to “Adjusting
Camera Brightness” on page 31.

Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
Camera Issues
If you are unable to pan, tilt, or zoom a camera that has these capabilities, ensure the
remote control contains three AAA batteries that are in good working condition. Also verify
that no objects are obstructing the sensor on the front of the camera and that the LED on
front of the camera flashes bright blue when you use the remote control to perform a task.
If no video displays from the camera, ensure the camera is connected to the Avaya system
with a camera cable to the appropriate camera input or contact your administrator.
Verify that the blue LED on the front of the camera is lit, indicating that power is active, and
reboot the system if necessary to verify that the camera turns on. To reboot the system, refer
to “Power and Connectivity Issues” on page 33.
Using Camera Diagnostic Preferences
You can use the camera diagnostic preferences in User Preferences : Diagnostics to
adjust camera brightness and white balance and correct for some types of flicker that may
appear in the video. Diagnostic camera preferences for camera brightness and white
balance are available only if the selected camera is connected to the codec and Ready
appears as the status for the camera on the System Information page.
Adjusting Camera Brightness
Camera brightness refers to the amount of light received through the lens of the camera.
You can improve dim scenes by adjusting room lighting and manually adjusting the camera
brightness. To adjust camera brightness, set the HD Camera Brightness preference in
User Preferences : Diagnostics : High Definition Camera.
Adjusting Camera White Balance
Camera white balance refers to how a camera references the color white, which is a mixture
of all colors. Adjust the white balance when video color appears to be unbalanced. White
balance is affected by the type of light source. To adjust the camera white balance adjust the
HD Camera White Balance preference in User Preferences : Diagnostics : High
Definition Camera.
Adjusting the Camera Anti-Flicker Preference
Lights powered by a 50 Hz power source can produce a flicker that the camera captures and
transmits to the system. If you are using lights powered by a 50 Hz power source and
observe a flicker in the video displayed in your system, select the 50 Hz option in User
Preferences : Diagnostics : High Definition Camera : Camera Anti-Flicker. The default
option is Auto.
Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide

Some camera exposure settings designed to be used in rooms lit by sunlight may result in a
flicker. To remove the flicker, increase the HD Camera Brightness setting in User
Preferences : Diagnostics : High Definition Camera.
Display Issues
The following issues are related to the user interface or the display.
Display Failures
If data does not appear on the display, ensure cables are properly connected on the display
and that the display cable is connected to the HD Display 1 output on the codec.
If the video image and user interface appear washed out or too bright, examine the input
settings of your HDTV to make sure the HDTV is displaying the appropriate resolution.
Some HDTVs (particularly plasma displays) allow you to configure the native resolution of
the input device from the HDTV administration interface.
Poor Quality Display
If the colors on the display appear incorrect, verify that the display cable is properly
connected to the display.
Poor Quality Far End Video
During a call, the Avaya system automatically selects the best video algorithm based on the
video source and capabilities of the remote system. If you experience poor motion handling
or visible tiling in the far end picture during a video call, contact your administrator.
Audio Issues
An Avaya system automatically selects the best audio algorithm based on the call rate and
the capabilities of the remote system. The following issues are related to the audio quality.
Problematic Sound Quality
If you are unable to hear the ringer when an incoming call arrives, adjust the Ring Tone
Volume preference in User Preferences : Audio.
Muffled audio reception from the far side may be caused by highly reverberant rooms. If you
are experiencing poor audio reception, add more sound absorbency to the room and speak
in close proximity to the microphone.
Degradation in the audio quality can also be caused by faulty microphones or dust and
debris on the microphones. Do not use any kind of liquid or aerosol cleaner on Avaya
devices that include microphones. A soft, slightly damp cloth is sufficient to clean the top
surface of the units if necessary.

Specifying a Locally Configured IP Address
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to dynamically allocate and assign IP
addresses. DHCP allows you to move network devices from one subnet to another without
administrative attention. You can choose to enable DHCP if a DHCP server is present. If you
disable DHCP, you must enter an IP address (the locally configured IP address if not
assigned by a DHCP server), subnet mask (used to partition the IP address into a network
and host identifier), and gateway (IP address of the default gateway the system uses).
Configuring Avaya Systems Using DHCP
If an Avaya video communications system obtains its IP address using DHCP (the default), it
can accept an option from the DHCP server that specifies a location and file from which the
system can obtain configuration information. The file can be located on a web server, trivial
file transfer protocol (TFTP) server, or file transfer protocol (FTP) server. Each time the
system boots, it attempts to fetch the configuration file specified by the option. If the
configuration file has changed since the last time it was applied, the system applies the
configuration file before the boot process continues. The following prerequisites must be met
to enable this feature:
•
The DHCP preference in Administrator Preferences : Network : General on the
Avaya system must be set to Enabled.
•
An Avaya system accepts site-specific option 157 for this feature. You must configure
this option on the DHCP server.
Note: If you configure a system using DHCP option 157 and specify a TFTP server as
the source from which to obtain the configuration file, the system accepts the download
through port 5351. Ensure that firewalls between the system and the TFTP server are
configured to allow the download through this port.
36
Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
Configuring the DHCP Option
Specific configuration details of DHCP servers for use with this feature vary depending on
the DHCP server used and your environment. The scope of this section is limited to
describing the format of site-specific option 157.
An Avaya system can accept site-specific option 157 from the DHCP server if you configure
the option as a string with the following format:
“Avaya: server=<path>”
where <path> is one or more URLs separated by semicolons that specifies the location of a
configuration file. Supported protocols include TFTP, FTP, and HTTP. If the path contains
more than one URL, the Avaya system tries the URLs in the order listed and uses the first
file that exists.
Example:
If the path is:
http://example/config/fishtank.cfg;ftp://example/other/fishtank.cfg
the system attempts to obtain the configuration file fishtank.cfg from the web server at
http://example/config/fishtank.cfg. If the file does not exist at that location, the system
attempts to obtain the configuration from the FTP server at ftp://example/other/fishtank.cfg.
Note:
If the server requires a username and password to access the file, for example to
log into an FTP server, you can include the user name and password in the URL.
For example:
ftp://<username>:<password>@example/other/fishtank.cfg
where <username> is the user name and <password> is the password required for
the login. The user name and password must not contain a semicolon.
Each URL can also contain the following escapes to make the configuration unique to the
system:
Escape
Replacement Value
#M
Replaced with the MAC address using the underscore character to replace the
colon between bytes. The MAC address resolves to a hexadecimal number with
lower case letters.
#S
Replaced by the system model; passport.
#I
Replaced by the assigned IP address.
Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
37
If a machine name or IP address is used alone as a path element, then the following path is
substituted:
tftp://<name>/#M.cfg;tftp://<name>/#S.cfg
where <name> is the IP address or DNS name in the path.
Example:
For an Avaya 1010/1020 system with a MAC address of 00:13:FA:00:12:33 and an IP
address of 10.10.22.77, the path:
http://example/configs/fishtank.cfg;example;ftp://example/#I.cfg
resolves to search for a configuration file at the following locations:
1. http://example/configs/fishtank.cfg
2. tftp://example/00_13_fa_00_12_33.cfg
3. tftp://example/passport.cfg
4. ftp://example/10.10.22.77.cfg
Note:
The MAC address resolves to a hexadecimal number with lower case letters. In the
previous example, the MAC address 00:13:FA:00:12:33 is replaced with
00_13_fa_00_12_33. If you specify a path that uses the #M escape, ensure that the
file name of the configuration file contains lower case letters.
The first file found is used. If the checksum of the file is different from the last configuration
file loaded into the system, then the new file is used.
Note:
Setting preferences that result in a system reboot, for example port ranges or SIP
preferences, may cause the system to reboot once the configuration file is loaded
into the system. Because the checksum for the configuration file in this case is the
same, the file is not loaded again. The actual configuration changes are applied
when the system is fully booted. This may cause previous configuration preferences
to appear in the user interface, for example a previous system name, before the
configuration takes effect.
Specifying the Hostname and Domain Name Service (DNS) Servers
You can enter the hostname of the system and the IP addresses to configure DNS servers.
You can also enter the domain names to search when resolving hostnames. Domain Name
System (DNS) translates names of network nodes into addresses; specify this preference to
use DNS to resolve the hostnames of devices to IP addresses.
38
Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
Specifying Network Speed
If you choose an option other than Auto for the Administrator Preferences : Network :
General : Network Speed preference, ensure that it matches the speed and duplex
configured on your network switch.
Note:
If your Ethernet switch is configured for half duplex, you may experience poor
quality video when placing calls greater than 512 Kb/s.
Specifying a VLAN Tag
If you have static virtual local area networks (VLANs) configured in your environment, you
can configure your Avaya system to apply a VLAN tag to outgoing packets and only accept
incoming tagged packets that have the same VLAN identifier. To enable this feature,
navigate to Administrator Preferences : Network : General : VLAN Tag and specify the
VLAN identifier of the VLAN to which the system is assigned. The value is a number in the
range 1 through 4094.
Note:
If you set or modify the VLAN Tag preference, the system reboots when you
navigate to another screen.
Specifying an NTP Server
The system date and time that appear in the user interface are automatically set if one of the
following conditions exists:
•
The Administrator Preferences : Network : General : DHCP preference is set to
Enabled, and the DHCP server can pass an NTP server address to your system.
- or -
•
The hostname or IP address of an NTP server is specified in Administrator
Preferences : Network : General : NTP Server Hostname.
Note:
An NTP server address that a DHCP server passes to your system overrides an
NTP server hostname or address specified in the NTP Server Hostname
preference.
The System Information page displays the IP address of the NTP server that the system
uses.
Note:
The time zone is not set automatically. If you did not specify the time zone for your
system during the initial configuration, the time that appears in the user interface
may not be correct. To specify the time zone manually, refer to “Manually Setting
System Date and Time” on page 42.

Restricting Reserved Ports
By default, Avaya systems communicate through TCP and UDP ports in the range 60000 64999 for video, voice, presentations, and camera control. Avaya systems use only a small
number of these ports during a call. The exact number depends on the number of
participants in the call, the protocol used, and the number of ports required for the type
(video or voice) of call.
To minimize the number of UDP and TCP ports that are available for communication, you
can restrict the range by entering values in Administrator Preferences : Network :
Reserved Ports. Avaya recommends that the range you choose, if other than a subset of
the default range, begins with a port number greater than 10000.
Note:
Changing the TCP range causes an automatic reboot of the system.

Adjusting Video Encoder Quality
You can adjust the quality of the video image sent to the far end during a call by specifying a
relative lower or higher resolution in the Administrator Preferences : Video : Video
Quality : Video Encoder Quality preference. Moving the slider to the right decreases the
resolution of the video sent to the far end and improves the quality of the video image.
Consider using this preference to make minor adjustments to the quality of the video image
sent to the far end.
Disabling Access to the Local Directory
By default, users can place calls using entries in the local directory and add, remove, or
modify these entries. For more information, refer to “Placing a Call from the Directory” on
page 14.
Administrators can disable user access to the local directory by setting Local Directory to
Disabled in Administrator Preferences : Directory : General. Disabling access to the local
directory also disabls the following:
•
saving entries from the REDIAL list to the local directory
•
copying corporate directory entries to the local directory
Administrators maintain access to the local directory on the web administration interface
Directory page when the Local Directory preference is set to Disabled. For more
information about managing the local directory from the web administration interface, refer
to “Using Advanced Directory Features” on page 54.

Avaya 1010/1020 User Guide
Populating the Corporate Directory
Users can place calls from the directory by selecting a number to dial from a list of stored
numbers. The corporate directory is H.350 compliant and can store up to 1000 entries in
both an alphabetical and hierarchical format. All users can manage entries in the local
directory. Only administrators can manage entries in the corporate directory.
You can populate the corporate directory by configuring Auto Discovery preferences or
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) preferences in Administrator Preferences :
Directory. You can enable only one of these methods. The system automatically disables
the other method to prevent duplicate entries from appearing in the corporate directory. The
status of these methods, either enabled or disabled, appears on the Administrator
Preferences : Directory screen. The connection status of the LDAP installation also
appears on this page and on the System Information page. The values that can appear for
the connection status include the following:
LDAP Connection Status
Description
Unregistered
LDAP preferences are not configured.
Registered

Configuring Auto Discovery
Auto discovery enables Avaya systems on your network to pass address information to
other Avaya systems automatically. By default, when an Avaya system joins a network, it
sends a broadcast packet to the local subnet to announce its presence. Any Avaya system
on the local subnet that receives the packet and has Auto Discovery set to Enabled replies
by sending address information about itself and a list of IP addresses of other Avaya
systems that it has discovered.
The Avaya system creates an entry in its corporate directory for every system on the local
subnet from which it received a response. It then queries the list of other IP addresses that it
received and the IP addresses that are stored in its own Redial list, but only if those
addresses are allowed by the filters that you specify in the Auto Discovery Subnets and
Auto Discovery Ignored Subnets preferences. By default, the system replies and sends
queries to other Avaya systems in the local subnet only.
Configure the Auto Discovery Subnets and Auto Discovery Ignored Subnets
preferences to enable the system to discover other Avaya systems outside the local subnet
and share that information with other Avaya systems. Specify subnet filters (separated by
spaces) in the Auto Discovery Subnets preference to identify the subnets to which the
Avaya system can send queries and replies. By default, the preference is empty; the system
sends queries and replies to other Avaya systems on the local subnet only.
To exclude subnets from auto discovery, specify subnet filters in the Auto Discovery
Ignored Subnets preference. If a destination address does not match one of the filters in
the Auto Discovery Subnets preference, or if it matches one of the filters in the Auto
Discovery Ignored Subnets preference, then the Avaya system does not query or reply to
the Avaya system at that address.
For example, you can configure the Auto Discovery Subnets preference to include a large
subnet and the Auto Discovery Ignored Subnets preference to exclude a subset of the
subnet. Consider a network that has several subnets with the IP address 10.* and a slow
network connection to devices that have a 10.85.* address. If you enter 10.* in the Auto
Discovery Subnets and 10.85.* in the Auto Discovery Ignored Subnets preference, the
Avaya system queries and replies to all Avaya systems that have a 10.* address, except
those that have a 10.85.* address.
If you set Auto Discovery to Disabled, the Avaya system does not send a broadcast
message to the local subnet and cannot discover or be discovered by other Avaya systems.
Reading from an LDAP Server
When you enable and configure LDAP preferences to populate the corporate directory, you
specify the hostname, login and query parameters, and the refresh interval for reading data
from a preconfigured LDAP server. Avaya recommends that you use an LDAP server
configured with an H.350 compliant schema.
