disconnect the Polycom HDX system from the call, just as you would hang up a
telephone receiver in a regular phone call.
Types of Video Calls You Can Make
Depending on your system configuration, you might be able to make calls
using ISDN, H.323, SIP, or V.35/RS-449/RS-530. You can place an audio-only

Protected and Private
Sites
Typically, the far site's gateway number
then the number of the far-site system.
Consult with the far site about the best
method for placing the call.
ISDN
Depending on the H.323 gatekeeper or
SIP server, the access code of the
near-site gateway, the speed code, and
the ISDN number of the far site. Contact
your system administrator for more
information.
Points to note about special dialing scenarios:
•
When you call an IP system through a gateway that requires an extension
(E.164 address), enter the extension in the dialing field whenever possible.
Check with your network administrator for the extension delimiter you need to
enter into the dialing field. For example, some networks use ## to separate the
extension from the IP address.
•
When you include the extension, you are prompted to save both the number and
the extension in the directory when the call ends. If you enter the extension after
the gateway connects, you can save only the gateway number when the call
ends.
•
To place a call within your PBX system, enter the internal extension instead of
the full number.
•
If you need to insert a pause, add one comma in the dial string for each second
you want the system to pause.
Participating in an Encrypted Call
If encryption is enabled on the system, a locked padlock icon appears on the
monitor when a call is encrypted. If a call is unencrypted, an unlocked padlock
appears on the monitor.
8
•
If you are in a point-to-point call or a multipoint call hosted by another
system, the padlock icon displays the state of your individual connection.
•
If you are hosting a multipoint call, the padlock icon displays the
combined state of all connections: encrypted if all connections in the call
are encrypted, unencrypted if one or more connections in the call are not
encrypted.
Polycom, Inc.
User’s Guide for Polycom HDX Room Systems
In one call, some connections might be encrypted while others are not. The
padlock icon might not accurately indicate whether the call is encrypted if the
call is cascaded or includes an audio-only endpoint. To avoid security risks,
Polycom recommends that all participants communicate the state of their
padlock icons verbally at the beginning of a call.
Controlling What You See
Selecting and Adjusting a Camera or Other Video Source
You can use the remote control to select and adjust the main camera or other
near-site or far-site video sources, such as document cameras, computers,
VCRs, or DVD players. You might be able to adjust other auxiliary cameras or
far-site cameras that support pan, tilt, and zoom movement.
You can adjust the far-site camera only if it is configured at the far site to allow you
to control it.

>> Move the slider to the right to close the privacy shutter, or to the left to
open it. You can still make and receive calls when the shutter is closed, but
the people at the far site cannot see you.
Setting and Using Camera Presets
Camera presets are stored camera positions that you can create ahead of time
or during a call.
Presets allow you to:
•
Automatically point a camera at pre-defined locations in a room.
•
Select a video source such as a VCR or DVD player, a document camera,
or an auxiliary camera.
If your system’s camera supports pan, tilt, and zoom movement, you can
create up to 100 preset camera positions (0-99) for the near site. Each preset
stores the camera number, its zoom level, and the direction it points. These
presets remain in effect until you delete or change them.
If far-site camera control is allowed, you can create up to 16 presets (0-15) for
the far-site camera. These presets are saved only for the duration of the call.
You might also be able to use presets that were created at the far site to control
the far-site camera.

The Polycom RMX must be configured to use the default DTMF codes
assigned to the recording process. Contact your system administrator for more
information.
Working with Directory Entries and Favorites
The directory on your Polycom HDX system stores dialing information that
helps you make calls quickly and easily. When a site listed in the directory calls
your system, the system displays the name on the screen when the call comes
in. If a site that calls you is not listed in the directory, you might be prompted
to save the contact information in the directory when the call ends.
If your system is registered with a global directory server, you can see
information about other active sites that are registered with the same Global
Directory Server. These entries are stored on the Global Directory Server, and
you cannot edit them. You can, however, add a global entry to your Favorites.

unexpected caller could interrupt a meeting in progress or look at equipment and
notes left in an empty room.

After the call connects, you can press

you’re ready to unmute the microphones.
Note that, if you enable this option during a call, the audio for the current
meeting is not affected.
