User administration
From this page you can manage the user accounts of your
video conference system. You can create new user accounts,
edit the details of existing users, and delete users.
The default user account
Default user account
The system comes with a default administrator user account
with username admin and no password set. The admin user
has full access rights, and it is highly recommended to set a
password for this user.
The system comes with
admin as the default
user account. This user
has full access rights.
Read more about passwords in the Password protection
chapter.
About user roles
A user account must hold one or a combination of several
user roles. Three user roles exist, representing different
rights:
• ADMIN: A user holding this role can create new users and
change all settings, except the security audit settings. He
cannot upload audit certificates.
• USER: A user holding this role can make calls and search
the phonebook.
• AUDIT: A user holding this role can change the security
audit configurations and upload audit certificates.
It is important to note that these three roles have nonoverlapping rights.
An administrator user account with full access rights, like the
default admin user, must possess all the three roles.
Security mode
You can enable/disable the strong security mode from this
page.
Strong security mode sets very strict password requirements,
and requires all users to change their password on next sign
in.
Software upload from TMS, web snapshots and making calls
from the web interface are prohibited in strong security mode.

H323 NAT Mode
The firewall traversal technology creates a secure path through the firewall barrier, and enables
proper exchange of audio/video data when connected to an external video conferencing system
(when the IP traffic goes through a NAT router). NOTE: NAT does not work in conjunction with
gatekeepers.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <Auto/On/Off>
Auto: The system will determine if the "NAT Address" or the real IP-address should be used
within signalling. This is done to make it possible to place calls to endpoints on the LAN as
well as endpoints on the WAN.
On: The system will signal the configured "NAT Address" in place of its own IP-address
within Q.931 and H.245. The NAT Server Address will be shown in the startup-menu as: "My
IP Address: 10.0.2.1".
Off: The system will signal the real IP Address.
Example: H323 NAT Mode: Off
H323 NAT Address
Enter the external/global IP-address to the router with NAT support. Packets sent to the router
will then be routed to the system.
In the router, the following ports must be routed to the system's IP-address:

Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <On/Off>
On: If the H.323 Gatekeeper Authentication Mode is set to On and a H.323 Gatekeeper
indicates that it requires authentication, the system will try to authenticate itself to the
gatekeeper. NOTE: Requires the Authentication LoginName and Authentication Password to
be defined on both the codec and the Gatekeeper.
Off: If the H.323 Gatekeeper Authentication Mode is set to Off the system will not try to
authenticate itself to a H.323 Gatekeeper, but will still try a normal registration.
Example: H323 Profile 1 Authentication Mode: Off
H323 Profile [1..1] Authentication LoginName
The system sends the Authentication Login Name and the Authentication Password to a H.323
Gatekeeper for authentication. The authentication is a one way authentication from the codec
to the H.323 Gatekeeper, i.e. the system is authenticated to the gatekeeper. If the H.323
Gatekeeper indicates that no authentication is required, the system will still try to register. NOTE:
Requires the H.323 Gatekeeper Authentication Mode to be enabled.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <S: 0, 50>
Format: String with a maximum of 50 characters.
Example: H323 Profile 1 Authentication LoginName: ""

H323 Profile [1..1] CallSetup Mode
H323 Profile [1..1] H323Alias E164
The H.323 Call Setup Mode defines whether to use a Gatekeeper or Direct calling when
establishing H323 calls.
The H.323 Alias E.164 defines the address of the system, according to the numbering plan
implemented in the H.323 Gatekeeper. The E.164 alias is equivalent to a telephone number,
sometimes combined with access codes.
NOTE: Direct H.323 calls can be made even though the H.323 Call Setup Mode is set to
Gatekeeper.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <Direct/Gatekeeper>
Direct: An IP-address must be used when dialling in order to make the H323 call.
Gatekeeper: The system will use a Gatekeeper to make a H.323 call. When selecting this
option the H323 Profile Gatekeeper Address and H323 Profile Gatekeeper Discovery settings
must also be configured.
Example: H323 Profile 1 CallSetup Mode: Gatekeeper
H323 Profile [1..1] Gatekeeper Discovery
Determine how the system shall register to a H.323 Gatekeeper.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <Manual/Auto>
Manual: The system will use a specific Gatekeeper identified by the Gatekeeper's IP-address.
Auto: The system will automatically try to register to any available Gatekeeper. If a Gatekeeper
responds to the request sent from the codec within 30 seconds this specific Gatekeeper
will be used. This requires that the Gatekeeper is in auto discovery mode as well. If no
Gatekeeper responds, the system will not use a Gatekeeper for making H.323 calls and
hence an IP-address must be specified manually.
Example: H323 Profile 1 Gatekeeper Discovery: Manual
H323 Profile [1..1] Gatekeeper Address
Enter the IP address of the Gatekeeper. NOTE: Requires the H.323 Call Setup Mode to be set to
Gatekeeper and the Gatekeeper Discovery to be set to Manual.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <S: 0, 255>
Format: Only the valid IP address format is accepted. An IP address that contains letters
(192.a.2.0) or unvalid IP addresses (192.0.1234.0) will be rejected.
Example: H323 Profile 1 Gatekeeper Address: "192.0.2.0"
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <S: 0, 30>
Format: Compact string with a maximum of 30 characters. Valid characters are 0-9, * and #.
Example: H323 Profile 1 H323Alias E164: "90550092"
H323 Profile [1..1] H323Alias ID
Lets you specify the H.323 Alias ID which is used to address the system on a H.323 Gatekeeper
and will be displayed in the call lists. Example: "firstname.surname@company.com", "My H.323
Alias ID"
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <S: 0, 49>
Format: String with a maximum of 49 characters
Example: H323 Profile 1 H323Alias ID: "firstname.surname@company.com"
H323 Profile [1..1] PortAllocation
The H.323 Port Allocation setting affects the H.245 port numbers used for H.323 call signalling.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <Dynamic/Static>
Dynamic: The system will allocate which ports to use when opening a TCP connection. The
reason for doing this is to avoid using the same ports for subsequent calls, as some firewalls
consider this as a sign of attack. When Dynamic is selected, the H.323 ports used are from
11000 to 20999. Once 20999 is reached they restart again at 11000. For RTP and RTCP
media data, the system is using UDP ports in the range 2326 to 2487. Each media channel
is using two adjacent ports, ie 2330 and 2331 for RTP and RTCP respectively. The ports are
automatically selected by the system within the given range. Firewall administrators should
not try to deduce which ports are used when, as the allocation schema within the mentioned
range may change without any further notice.
Static: When set to Static the ports are given within a static predefined range [5555-6555].
Example: H323 Profile 1 PortAllocation: Dynamic

SIP Profile [1..1] DefaultTransport
SIP Profile [1..1] Proxy [1..4] Address
Select the transport protocol to be used over the LAN.
The Proxy Address is the manually configured address for the outbound proxy. It is possible to
use a fully qualified domain name, or an IP address. The default port is 5060 for TCP and UDP
but another one can be provided. If Outbound is enabled, multiple proxies can be addressed.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <UDP/TCP/Tls/Auto>
UDP: The system will always use UDP as the default transport method.
TCP: The system will always use TCP as the default transport method.
Tls: The system will always use TLS as the default transport method. For TLS connections a
SIP CA-list can be uploaded to the video system. If no such CA-list is available on the system
then anonymous Diffie Hellman will be used.
Auto: The system will try to connect using transport protocols in the following order: TLS,
TCP, UDP.
Example: SIP Profile 1 DefaultTransport: Auto
SIP Profile [1..1] TlsVerify
For TLS connections a SIP CA-list can be uploaded to the video system.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <On/Off>
On: Set to On to verify TLS connections. Only TLS connections to servers, whose x.509
certificate is validated against the CA-list, will be allowed.
Off: Set to Off to allow TLS connections without verifying them. The TLS connections are
allowed to be set up without verifying the x.509 certificate received from the server against
the local CA-list. This should typically be selected if no SIP CA-list has been uploaded.
Example: SIP Profile 1 TlsVerify: Off

Video Input Source [1..2] Quality
Video ControlPanel Brightness
When encoding and transmitting video there will be a tradeoff between high resolution and high
framerate. For some video sources it is more important to transmit high framerate than high
resolution and vice versa. The Quality setting specifies whether to give priority to high frame rate
or to high resolution for a given source.
Set the brightness level for the touch screen.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <Motion/Sharpness>
Motion: Gives the highest possible framerate. Used when there is a need for higher frame
rates, typically when a large number of participants are present or when there is a lot of
motion in the picture.
Sharpness: Gives the highest possible resolution. Used when you want the highest quality of
detailed images and graphics.
Example: Video Input Source 1 Quality: Motion

Video Layout Scaling
Define how the system shall adjust the aspect ratio for images or frames when there is a
difference between the image and the frame it is to be placed in.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <On/Off>
On: Let the system automatically adjust aspect ratio.
Off: No adjustment of the aspect ratio.
Define which video input source shall be used as the default presentation source (when you tap
Presentation followed by Present on the touch controller). The input source is configured to a
video input connector.
Example: Video Layout Scaling: On
Requires user role: USER
Value space: <1..2>
Range: Select the video source to be used as the presentation source.
Define what to do if the aspect ratio of a video input source doesn't match the aspect ratio of the
corresponding image frame in a composition. For example if you have a 4:3 input source (like
XGA) to be displayed on a 16:9 output (like HD720).
Example: Video DefaultPresentationSource: 2
Requires user role: ADMIN
Video Input DVI [1] Type
The official DVI standard supports both digital and analog signals. In most cases the default
AutoDetect setting can detect whether the signal is analog RGB or digital. However, in some rare
cases when DVI-I cables are used (these cables can carry both the analog and digital signals)
the auto detection fails. This setting makes it possible to override the AutoDetect and select the
correct DVI video input.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <AutoDetect/Digital/AnalogRGB/AnalogYPbPr>
AutoDetect: Set to AutoDetect to automatically detect if the signal is analog RGB or digital.
Digital: Set to Digital to force the DVI video input to Digital when using DVI-I cables with both
analog and digital pins and AutoDetect fails.
AnalogRGB: Set to AnalogRGB to force the DVI video input to AnalogRGB when using DVI-I
cables with both analog and digital pins and AutoDetect fails.
AnalogYPbPr: Set to AnalogYPbPr to force the DVI video input to AnalogYPbPr, as the
component (YPbPr) signal cannot be auto detected.
Example: Video Input DVI 1 Type: AutoDetect
Video Layout ScaleToFrame
Value space: <Manual/MaintainAspectRatio/StretchToFit>
Manual: If the difference in aspect ratio between the video input source and the target
image frame is less than the ScaleToFrameThreshold configuration (in percent), the image is
stretched to fit. If not, the system will maintain the original aspect ratio.
MaintainAspectRatio: Will maintain the aspect ratio of the input source, and fill in black in the
rest of the frame (letter boxing or pillar boxing).
StretchToFit: Will stretch (horizontally or vertically) the input source to fit into the image frame.
NOTE: The general limitation is that you cannot upscale in one direction and at the same time
downscale in the other direction. In such situations the codec will apply letterboxing.
Example: Video Layout ScaleToFrame: MaintainAspectRatio
Video Layout ScaleToFrameThreshold
Only applicable if the ScaleToFrame configuration is set to manual. If the difference in
aspect ratio between the video input source and the target image frame is less than the
ScaleToFrameThreshold configuration (in percent), the image is stretched to fit. If not, the
system will maintain the original aspect ratio.
Requires user role: ADMIN
Value space: <0..100>
Range: Select a value from 0 to 100 percent.
Example: Video Layout ScaleToFrameThreshold: 5

Introduction
Web interface
Setting the system password
You need a username and password to sign in to the web and
command line interfaces of your system.
The video conference system is delivered with a default user
account with username admin and no password set. This user
has full access rights to the system.
Advanced settings
Setting the Administrator settings menu
password
When starting up the system for the first time the
Administrator Settings menu password is not set.
Note: We strongly recommend that you set a password for
the admin user to restrict access to system configuration.
Note: We strongly recommend that you define a password
to protect the Administrator Settings menu on the Touch
controller, since these settings affect the behavior of the video
conference system.
Make sure to keep a copy of the password in a safe place.
You have to contact your Cisco representative if you have
forgotten the password.
You need to use a command line interface to set the
Administrator Settings menu password; you neither can use
the Touch controller nor the web interface.
Changing your system password
Setting the Administrator Settings menu password
Perform the following steps to change the system password.
If a password is currently not set, use a blank Current
password; to remove a password, leave the New password
fields blank.
1.Sign in to the web interface with your username and
current password.
66
Appendices
1.Connect to the system through the network or the serial
data port, using a command line interface (SSH or Telnet).
2.Type the following command:
xCommand SystemUnit MenuPassword Set
Password: <password>
Setting a root password
You can also protect the file system of your video system by
setting a password for the root user. The root user is disabled
by default. You have to use the command line interface to
enable the root user and set a root password.
Setting a root password
Perform the following steps to activate the root user and set a
password for it:
1.Connect to the system through the network or the serial
data port, using a command line interface (SSH or Telnet).
2.Sign in to the system with username and password. The
user needs ADMIN rights.
3.Type the following command:
systemtools rootsettings on <password>
NOTE: The root password is not the same as the system
(admin) password.
The password format is a string with 0–255 characters.
2.Click your username in the upper right corner and select
Change password in the drop down menu.
3.Enter the Current password, the New password, and
repeat the new password in the appropriate input fields.
The password format is a string with 0–64 characters.
4.Click Change password.
Changing another user’s system password
Read more about creating more user accounts in the User
management section.
If you have ADMIN rights, you can change all users’ passwords
by performing the following steps:
1.Sign in to the web interface with your username and password.
2.Go to the Maintenance tab and select User Administration.
3.Select the appropriate user from the list.
4.Enter a new password and PIN code.

Cisco VCS provisioning
When using Cisco VCS (Video Communication Server)
provisioning, a template containing all the settings that can be
provisioned must be uploaded to Cisco TMS (TelePresence
Management System). This is called the Cisco TMS
provisioning configuration template.
Downloading the provisioning configuration template
All the Advanced Settings for your video system are included
in this template. All settings except SystemUnit Name and SIP
Profile [1..1] URI can be automatically provisioned to the video
system.
For each software release there is one provisioning
configuration template for every video system model. Take
care to download the correct file.
The settings are described in the Advanced settings chapter
in this guide. Examples showing either the default value or an
example value are included.
You can download the templates here:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11776/prod_
release_notes_list.html
Read the Cisco TMS Provisioning Deployment Guide to find
how to upload the file to Cisco TMS, and how to set the
desired values for the parameters to be provisioned. If not set
by Cisco TMS, the default values will be used.

Optimal definition profiles
Under ideal lighting conditions the bandwidth requirements
can be substantially reduced with the optimal definitions
profiles.
Generally, we recommend the Optimal Definition set at
Normal.
If lighting conditions are good we recommend that you test
the endpoint on the various Optimal Definition settings before
deciding on a profile.
Go to Advanced Configuration on the web interface and
navigate to Video > Input > Source [1..n] > OptimalDefinition >
Profile and select the optimal definition profile.
You can set a resolution threshold below which the maximum
frame rate will be 30 fps.
Go to Advanced Configuration on the web interface and
navigate to Video > Input > Source [1..n] > OptimalDefinition >
Threshold60fps and select a threshold.
The video input quality settings must be set to Motion for the
Optimal Definition to work. With the video input quality set to
Sharpness, the endpoint will transmit the highest resolution
possible, regardless of frame rate.
Go to Advanced Configuration on the web interface and
navigate to Video > Input > Source [1..n] > Quality and set the
video quality parameter.
High (720p60)
Medium (w576p60)
Normal (w448p60)
Typically used in dedicated video
conferencing rooms. Requires good
lighting conditions for a good overall
experience.
Typically used in rooms with better
than normal, and consistent lighting.
This setting is typically used in
office environments where the
environment is normal to poorly lit.
Under ideal conditions the
bandwidth requirements can be
reduced by up to 50%.
The bandwidth requirements can be
reduced by up to 25%.
Generally, we recommend the
Optimal Definition set at Normal.
