Call Quality
Button
Function
Pressing this button displays the Call Quality Configuration Screen (see Figure 12).
This allows the Codec to be set to make a specific type of call. The Codec will negotiate with the remote site using the
given call parameters.
Default Call Quality is the number of channels the system will attempt to call at unless changed using the ‘Quality’
function on the dialing page.
Video Resolution: QCIF: Low resolution video (176 x 144 pixels). CIF: High-resolution video (352 x 288 pixels). iCIF: CIF
resolution at 60 fields/sec. 4CIF: Highest resolution (704 x 576 pixels). AUTO: Allows the system to set the optimal resolution.
Video Mode: H.261: Normal video compression and decompression. H.263: Bandwidth efficient video compression and
decompression. AUTO: Allows the system to set the optimal quality.
Audio Mode: G.728: Compressed normal quality audio leaving more bandwidth for video.G.711: Normal quality audio
(telephone quality, 3.1 kHz). G.722 and G.722.1: High quality audio (7 kHz). AUTO: Allows the system to set the optimal quality.
Optimize- Quality is a speed button, which sets all three elements to AUTO. AUTO lets the Codec determine the best call
parameters to use.

Gatekeeper & Routing Settings
Buttons
Function
No
The Codec will not use a gatekeeper and an IP-address must be used in order to make an H.323 call.
Auto
The Codec will automatically try to register on any available gatekeeper. If a gatekeeper responds to the request sent
from the Codec within 30 seconds, this specific gatekeeper will be used. If no gatekeeper responds, the Codec will not
use a gatekeeper for making H.323 calls and hence an IP-address must be manually specified.
Manual
The Codec will use a specific gatekeeper specified using the ‘Gatekeeper IP-address’
H323 Alias
This is the H323 address of the Codec. The H323 address is equivalent to a telephone number, sometimes combined
with access codes. Valid characters are 0-9, * and #. Pressing the H323 Alias button allows access to numeric keypad,
where an alias number can be entered. When using a gatekeeper, the Codec will send a message to the gatekeeper
containing both H323 address and the system name of the Codec. The Codec will not register with the gatekeeper if the
H323 alias is not set.
Gatekeeper IP
This is the gatekeeper IP-address if you specify ‘manual’
RSVP
(Resource Reservation
Protocal)
This can be enabled and disabled from the System Setup > Terminal Setup > Ethernet > Gatekeeper/Routing. RSVP

Installation Considerations
1. The standard hardware included with the microphone is intended to be clipped to ceiling tracks with the standard
inverted “T” shaped cross-section, and with the horizontal part of that “T” to be either 9/16” (14 mm) or 15/16” (24
mm) in width. Ceilings which are not of this design need to have a secure anchoring installed in the ceiling to
hang the microphone.
2. The standard cable included with the microphone is 47 feet (14 meters) long and plenum rated to comply with fire
code regulations. This allows the microphone to be mounted up to about 30 “ceiling feet” (9 meters) away from
the system. If the microphone is mounted further away, additional cable needs to be ordered. This cable is
available in several standard lengths and can be ordered from your local TANDBERG Representative.
3. The microphone assembly has a pickup range of about 14 feet (5 meters). This means that all seating positions
should be within this range of the microphone capsule. If there are substantial numbers of desired seating
positions outside this area, then additional microphones may need to be installed.
4. The microphone cable should be routed from the microphone on the ceiling to the system on the floor in an
aesthetic manner, such as within a conduit or wall “punch-out”.
5. The AudioScience microphone is currently limited for use on the TANDBERG Educator and other approved
systems. Other applications will be documented, as they become available.

Selecting a Mounting Location
The mounting location of the AudioScience microphone can be determined through the application of three principles:
1. All desirable seating positions should be within 14 feet (5 meters) of the microphone capsule, with an
unobstructed line of sight to the microphone capsule.
2. All undesirable noise sources should be blocked from reaching the microphone capsule by one or both
boundaries of the microphone.
3. The mounting holes of the microphone boundary must be directly under a ceiling track to allow for mounting
hardware. Additionally, to allow for easier changing of lighting tubes or bulbs, the microphone should not be
mounted where the microphone blocks these items. If, due to acoustic concerns, a light fixture has to be
“blocked” then string the microphone cable in such a way as to allow for removal of the microphone when light
bulbs or tubes need to be changed.

Assembly and Installation Instructions
1. Read the “Installation Considerations” on page 56 and proceed after all considerations have been understood and
satisfied.
2. Read the guidelines for “Selecting a Mounting Location” on page 57 and select a mounting location.
3. Determine if the ceiling tracks are 9/16” (14 mm) wide or 15/16” (24 mm) wide. Eight ceiling track clips have been
included. Four are for 9/16” ceiling tracks, and four are for 15/16” (24 mm) ceiling tracks. Discard the four that
are not required.
4. Attach the ceiling clips to the ceiling grid. Attaching the ceiling clip requires a twisting motion while applying
upward pressure on the clip. Adjoining ceiling tiles may need to be pushed up to fully attach the ceiling clip.
Place the clips in positions to match the location of the AudioScience microphone’s mounting holes at each corner
of the top deflector.
5. Remove the protective paper from all surfaces of the top and rear deflectors.
6. Attach the rear deflector to the top deflector using the two cable suspension assemblies at the outer mounting
holes, and two of both the shoulder screws and Nylon washers. Tighten the shoulder screws to be “finger-tight.”
In the same manner, attach the two remaining cable suspension assemblies to the opposite corner mounting
holes of the top deflector.
7. With the assistance of another person, attach the AudioScience microphone assembly to the ceiling. This is done
by supporting the acrylic structure while the cable suspension assemblies are threaded onto the ceiling clips.
8. Attach the two safety cables to the AudioScience microphone, and connect them to solid anchoring points in the
ceiling. Do Not attach the safety cables to electrical or other wiring. (The _” universal snap hooks and the bailing
wire may be used to achieve this.) Allow enough slack to let the ceiling tiles slide into place, but not enough to
allow the microphone unit to hit anyone in the case of ceiling track failure.

9. Push back the ceiling tiles located directly above the microphone unit. Route the microphone cable up from the
hole in the top deflector, along one of the safety cables, to the ceiling. Use the supplied cable ties to attach the
microphone cable to the safety cable.
10. Plug the 47’ microphone cable assembly into the XLR connector connected to the microphone capsule. Route
the cable across the ceiling and down a wall located near the Videoconferencing system. If the cable is to be
installed in a wall, a “fish tape” or conduit may be necessary to get the cable from the ceiling to the floor.
11. Replace the ceiling tiles. Small notches may need to be cut in the ceiling tiles to allow for the microphone cable
and safety cables.
12. Using the Brillianize plastic cleaner, and the Sofkloth towel, wipe clean the plastic surfaces of the AudioScience
microphone. The microphone is now ready for use.

Appendix 2:
The Tracker
The Tracker is a hand held Infrared transmitter that allows user to request the student camera to focus on their
location.
Each Tracker has a specific Student camera preset allocated to it and hence the Tracker must be used from the
location the camera preset will focus on.
The Tracker has two buttons, one for requesting to view the individual (single person) the other viewing a group or the
wide-angle room view (three people).
The Tracker must be pointed towards the student camera for correct operation.
To set the Tracker address a rotary dial switch within the unit must be configured.
•
Remove the battery cover on the underside of the Tracker.
•
The switch has an arrow design to show it’s current setting. Using a small flat bladed screwdriver rotate clockwise
the switch until the required setting is selected.
The relationship between Student camera presets and Tracker switch settings are as follows.
NB. Tracker settings 0.1.F will not function correctly.
