About a “Memory
Stick”
What is “Memory Stick”?
“Memory Stick” is a new compact, portable
and versatile IC (Integrated Circuit)
recording medium with a data capacity that
exceeds a floppy disk. “Memory Stick” is
specially designed for exchanging and
sharing digital data among “Memory Stick”
compatible products. Because it is
removable, “Memory Stick” can also be
used for external data storage.
“Memory Stick” is available in two sizes:
standard size and compact “Memory Stick
Duo” size. Once attached to a Memory Stick
Duo adapter, “Memory Stick Duo” turns to
the same size as standard “Memory Stick”
and thus can be used with products
compliant with standard “Memory Stick.”
There are five types of “Memory Stick”
depending on various uses.
• “Memory Stick PRO”
Equipped with MagicGate copyright
protection technology, designed for use
only with equipment compatible with
“Memory Stick PRO”.
• “Memory Stick-R”
Data stored in this type of “Memory Stick”
is not overwritten. It can be used only with
equipment compatible with “Memory
Stick-R”. Data that requires MagicGate
copyright protection technology cannot be
stored on this type.
• “Memory Stick”
Any type of data except copyrightprotected data that requires MagicGate
copyright protection technology can be
stored.

Chapter 5: Data
Conference
This chapter shows you how to use the data from a computer, etc. connected
to the optional PCSA-DSB1S Data Solution Box for a conference.
The optional PCSA-DSB1S Data Solution Box is equipped with various input/
output connectors. For example, connecting the RGB output on a computer
enables you to transmit the pictures or text data displayed on the computer to
a remote party. When you connect a projector, you can display a highresolution image from a computer on the projector at a high transmission rate.
The PCSA-DSB1S is also equipped with connectors for connecting active
speakers and microphones. The PCSA-DSB1S is connected with the Video
Communication System using the interface cable for exclusive use.
The party who receives the data, even if the party has no Data Solution Box or
uses another videoconferencing system such as PCS-1/1P, PCS-11/11P and
PCS-1600, can view the computer images sent from the other party. However,
the quality of the picture received varies with the components of the system. If
the Data Solution Box is used by the party who receives the data, a larger
number of frames per second is obtained than the system without the Data
Solution Box. It allows you to obtain a high-resolution motion picture from a
computer.
For details on picture quality depending on the system components, see
“Picture quality of the data solution box” on page 134.
For details on RGB signal specifications, see “Acceptable RGB Input/Output
Signals” on page 203.
Restrictions on the IP address of the system when using the Data
Solution Box
The IP address available for the PCS-TL50 Video Communication System is
restricted when you use the Data Solution Box. Moreover, a network for
communication between the Data Solution Box and the Video Communication
System should be set up to be a separate segment.
As a result, unusable IP address is the value obtained from the AND operation
with the address of the Data Solution Box for communication and the network
mask.
(Unusable IP address for the PCS-TL50) = (IP address of the PCSADSB1S)&(Network mask)
The IP address of the PCSA-DSB1S is fixed at “192.254.1.2”. If the Network
mask is assumed to be “255.255.0.0”, an unusable IP address is as follows:
192.254.m.n (0
m
255, 0
n

Note on the camera picture when using the Data Solution Box
When transmitting a signal via the Data Solution Box, the camera picture
quality will be lower owing to the decreased number of frames.

Encrypted
Videoconference
via LAN
When a highly confidential videoconference is required or a videoconference
is held via internet, the Video Communication System enables transmission
and reception of encrypted video, audio and data output from the Data Solution
Box between the systems identified as the same password. Conducting a
videoconference using this feature is known as an encrypted videoconference
via LAN.
This chapter describes how to conduct an encrypted videoconference via LAN.
The encrypted videoconference via LAN is available only between PCS-TL50
or PCS-1/1P Video Communication Systems connected via LAN. You cannot
conduct an encrypted videoconference if the system is connected via an ISDN,
via ISDN & LAN, or with Sony video communication systems other than the
PCS-TL50 or PCS-1/1P or with other manufacturers’ videoconferencing
systems.
The encryption feature can also be used in multipoint conference using LAN
connection (including the cascade connection via LAN).
Note
In an encrypted conference only video signals, audio signals and RGB signals from a
computer connected to the Data Solution Box are encrypted. Camera control signals (for
controlling the other party’s camera) and whiteboard pictures cannot be encrypted.
138
Preparing for an Encrypted
Videoconference via LAN
To start an encrypted videoconference, each terminal has to set the same
password and set “Encryption via LAN” to “On” in the Encryption via LAN
menu.

• If you set “Encryption via LAN” to “On”, you cannot connect to a terminal that is not
equipped with the encryption feature, to a terminal with “Encryption via LAN” set to
“Off”, or to a terminal without the same password as that of your system.
• You can conduct a videoconference without an encryption feature with a terminal
connected via an ISDN even if you set “Encryption via LAN” to “On”.
Starting an Encrypted Videoconference
via LAN
You can start an encrypted videoconference via LAN by calling a remote party
in the same manner as a daily videoconference.
During an encrypted videoconference via LAN, the
(encryption) icon is
displayed on the screen.
Notes
• When the
icon is not displayed on the screen, transmission and reception data
will not be encrypted. Be sure to confirm if the
icon is displayed before starting
an encrypted videoconference.
• As the encryption feature is not available for a terminal connected via an ISDN, the
icon does not appear on the screen of such a terminal.
When the encrypted videoconference via LAN is disabled
If the following message appears when you call a remote party, an encrypted
videoconference via LAN is not available.

Starting an Encrypted Videoconference via LAN
This chapter describes how to conduct a multipoint videoconference.
For conducting a multipoint videoconference, installation of the optional PCS323M1 H.323 MCU software (for LAN connection) or the optional PCS320M1 H.320 MCU software (for ISDN connection) is required.
Multipoint videoconference among up to ten points including the local site is
available when connecting via a LAN.
When connecting via ISDN lines, you can conduct a multipoint
videoconference among up to six points including the local site. You can use
a normal phone at up to five points over ISDN.
A multipoint videoconference using the ISDN and LAN connections mixed is
also available.
Restrictions on the use of the MCU software
• When a multipoint videoconference is held via LAN, the bandwidth is
automatically set so that the total value of all the points is 1920 Mbps at
maximum. The bit rate for each point varies with the points you connect.
• When a multipoint videoconference is held via ISDN, the same number of
channels should be used on all the points and the total channels are up to 12B.
• The supported video modes are H.263 and H.261 only.
• The supported audio modes are G.711, G.722 and G.728 only.

The following submenu appears.
Notes on Secondary
Terminals
If there is a terminal that is not adequate for
the settings set by this system, that terminal
is called the secondary terminal.
Communication capabilities between the
secondary terminal and this system are
shown below.
• Sending/receiving audio
• Receiving video from the secondary
terminal
• Disables transmission of video to the
secondary terminal
For details on the secondary terminal, see
Glossary on page 211.
When a normal phone is connected
The audio mode of the other terminals is not
affected if a normal phone is connected or
disconnected any time.
When terminals with “Far End
Camera Control” set to “On” and
“Off” are mixed
As the bit rate of video signals differs
depending on the setting of “Far End
Camera Control”, the picture is not
displayed on some terminals.
When a 56K network is mixed among
the terminals if the conference is held
via 64K network
The conference automatically changes to
that via 56 K network. Terminals that cannot
change to that network are regarded as
secondary terminals, and the transmission of
video is not available.
When a terminal with different audio
mode is connected and its video bit
rate is different
The conference is conducted in the video
mode according to the terminal with the
lowest video bit rate. A terminal that cannot
fit this rate is regarded as a secondary
terminal, and the transmission of video is not
available.

Notes on Secondary Terminals
When a terminal whose video mode is
QCIF standard only
The system does not send video to the QCIF
terminal.

Precautions
Operating or storage location
Avoid operating or storing the system in the
following locations:
• Extremely hot or cold places
• Humid or dusty places
• Places exposed to strong vibration
• Close to sources of strong magnetism
• Close to sources of powerful
electromagnetic radiation, such as radios
or TV transmitters
• Noisy places
LCD screen
• Do not expose the LCD screen surface to
the sun. Doing so may damage the screen
surface.
• Do not push or scratch the LCD screen, or
place objects on top of the system. The
image may become uneven or the LCD
panel may be damaged.
• If the system is used in a cold place, a
smear may occur in the picture or the
picture may become dark. This does not
indicate a failure. These phenomena
improve as the temperature rises.
• Ghosting may occur when still pictures are
displayed continuously. It may disappear
after a few moments.
• The screen and cabinet get warm when the
system is in use. This is not a malfunction.
LCD display panel
• Although the LCD display panel is made
with high-precision technology, black dots
may appear or bright points of light (red,
blue, or green) may appear constantly on
the LCD screen. Color stripes and uneven
brightness may also appear when you view
from specific viewing angles. This is a
structural property of the LCD panel and is
not a malfunction.
Built-in speakers
The speakers generate magnetism. To avoid
damaging the data, keep magnetic tapes and
disks away from the speakers.
188
Precautions
Cleaning
• Before cleaning, disconnect the power
cord from the AC outlet.
• The LCD screen surface is finished with a
special coating. To remove dust from the
screen surface, wipe gently with a soft, dry
cloth.
• Do not use volatile solvents such as
alcohol, benzene or thinners as they may
damage the surface finishes.
• When you use chemical cleaning cloth,
observe the instructions that come with it.
• Do not apply volatile solvents such as an
insecticide to the screen, or allow rubber
or plastic objects to touch to the screen for
a long time, as they may damage the
surface finishes.

Layout Considerations
• Avoid having large, moving objects,
especially people, behind the participants,
as the quality of the picture transmitted to
the remote party will deteriorate.
• Do not seat participants in front of a wall
with fine stripe patterns.
• Choose a room where echo will not occur.
• Do not install the system near noise
sources such as air conditioners or copy
machines.
• Avoid placing the system in a room where
there are the speakers used for an in-house
broadcasting system.
Lighting Considerations
Do not point the camera toward a window
where sunlight comes in as back lighting
may decrease the contrast. If it is necessary,
cover the window with a thick curtain.
Adjust room lighting so that it falls on the
participants. Avoid direct light on the
210
display. Light intensity on faces should be
about 300 lux or more.
Videoconferencing Room Layout
If an inverter type or brightness-adjustable
type of fluorescent lamp is used, the
sensitivity of the Remote Commander may
deteriorate.

BONDING*
BONDING is one of the Inverse
Multiplexing methods allowing connection
of the videoconferencing system using
multiple ISDN lines. Dialing the first ISDN
line only enables you to connect all other
lines. Dialing the second and later lines is
automatically done by the communication
between the videoconferencing systems on
both sites. To use BONDING, it is required
that both videoconferencing systems are
equipped with the BONDING function and
that “Area Code” and “Local Number” in the
ISDN Setup menu on the answering site are
set correctly. As the communication
between the systems when using the
BONDING function is made via the ISDN
numbers on the answering site, setting of
“Area Code” and “Local Number” in the
ISDN Setup menu is not essential on the
dialing site.
DHCP
An abbreviation for Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol. Manages IP
addresses in the network.
G.728

I-MUX
An abbreviation for Inverse Multiplexer.
This protocol allows you to transmit the data
at 384 Kbps via 6B-channel.
Interlaced SIF
With TV pictures, 60 fields of pictures per
second are interlaced to provide high
resolution and smooth motion pictures.
The conventional videoconferencing system
uses CIF format pictures (352 pixel × 388
line) transmitted in 30 fields per second. In
CIF format, smooth motion pictures like TV
pictures cannot be obtained. In the Interlaced
SIF format, interlaced SIF size pictures (352
pixel × 240 line) can be transmitted at 60
frames per second. This enables display of
pictures with higher vertical resolution of
352 pixel × 480 lines, providing smooth
motion picture. However, a relatively higher
bit rate is required as the amount of
information is twice as much as that of the
CIF format.
ISDN

The MLP or HMLP is a protocol for data
communication such as NetMeeting. Using
the HMLP protocol allows faster data
transmission.
restriction on the functions depends on the
conditions described in “Notes on
Secondary Terminals” under “Chapter 8
Multipoint Videoconference”.
For example, this system does not transmit
video signals to a terminal that has no
common formats but can communicate via
audio signals. In this case, the terminal in
which picture viewing is not available is
regarded as a secondary terminal.*2 A
terminal communicated via a normal phone
included in the multipoint videoconference
is also called a secondary terminal. For
details on secondary terminals, see “Notes
on Secondary Terminals” on page 166.
