TMS Java Edition
NCast Tech Tip
Telepresenter Management System
Java Edition
Control a Telepresenter or Presentation Recorder from your Desktop
This Tech Tip covers installation and usage of the Telepresenter Management
System (TMS), Java Edition.
TMS is a Java based utility which allows remote control of a single Telepresenter or
Presentation Recorder from a desktop PC, notebook or netbook using the serial
command set over an IP network. There are several control layouts available:
Session Start/Stop Layout
This is the simplest layout and allows Session start/stop commands to be executed.
The recorder being controlled is listed at the top along with its current status. The
colors on the buttons indicate whether the unit is active or not. Although there are no
recording buttons available, a Channel may be setup to provide for automatic startup
of recording when a Session starts. When the Session stops, recording stops. There
is a version of this layout with three text fields for entering Title, Presenter and
Description metadata.
Record Layout – Session Start/Stop and Record Start/Stop
This layout adds separate Record start/stop buttons. There is a text version of this
layout.
Mixer Layout – Session and Record Start/Stop with Source Selection
This layout adds controls for source selection.

Telepresenter Management System – Java Edition
Control Panel Layout – Full Control of the Recorder
This layout provides for controls of all runtime features on the Telepresenter or Presentation
Recorder.
The Channel spinner specifies which channel to start. Audio sliders allow adjustment of input
and output audio gains. Audio level meters report the current audio input levels every
second. The audio input level may be forced to a given value at program startup. A
thumbnail image shows the current screen composition and material being recorded.
Usage – Starting the Program
First, you must enable the Telnet port on the unit to be controlled. Go to the Telnet tab on the
recorder's web page and set the “Enabled” option. Add the controlling IP address to the “IP
Restriction” field and click “Update”.
TMS is distributed as a Java .jar file along with two property files. Double-click on the
TMS.jar file to launch the program and enter the IP address and Layout desired.
To initially start the program from a command line use this command:
java -jar TMS.jar myunit.ncast.edu
Once initialized the “tms.properties” file retains the address of the recorder being controlled.
Properties File
The fields in the properties file may be edited to change operation of the program:
