Manages address information and routes calls between
terminals
This product manages the address information of individual terminals and routes
connection requests to the appropriate recipients. Even when a terminal’s address is not
fixed (i.e. the address is assigned dynamically by DHCP), it can always be accessed
using the same dialing number. Also, even when calls are made directly between
terminals, this product functions as a SIP server and records information about the calls.
Digital mixing function
Equipped with the digital mixing function, this product is able to connect eight ProjectPhones.
By connecting two PJP-MC24 units to each ProjectPhone, up to 24 ProjectPhones can be
connected for a voice conference with multiple participants.
Link function that supports conferences of varying scales
The link function can be used to connect up to four PJP-MC24 units. When four PJPMC24 units are connected, four conferences, each with 24 participants, can be held
simultaneously, or one conference with 96 participants can be held.

Introduction
The PJP-MC24 is a Multipoint Audio Control Unit designed exclusively for use with
YAMAHA' s IP phone conference system “ProjectPhone.”
It manages terminal address information and routes calls between terminals. It also
manages conference schedules and automatically establishes connections between
terminals for conferencing.Equipped with the digital mixing function, the PJP-MC24
enables a voice conference with multiple participants by connecting up to 24 ProjectPhones
(or up to 96 ProjectPhones if four PJP-MC24 units are linked).
Multi-participant voice conference based on interconnection
of ProjectPhones
Introduction
By using the mixing function of the ProjectPhone instead of the digital mixing function of
the PJP-MC24, up to 30 voice conferences can be held simultaneously, each with
10 participants, independent of conferences that are held using the mixing function of the
PJP-MC24. The audio data traffic is processed directly between each terminal so that the
traffic load never concentrates on a specific participant location.
Enables automated conferencing with conference
management functions and remote control
If you make a conference reservation by selecting the participants and setting the
conference time, this product automatically constructs a conference network by calling up
and connecting to all of the participants’ ProjectPhones. The participants at each location
can join in the conference immediately without bothering to operate their ProjectPhones.
The ad hoc conference function allows up to 10 participants to join a conference without
a reservation, to hold a casual conference where the participants can discuss the topics
freely in an open space.
Audio port
You can also connect an audio device to the audio port on the front panel of the PJP-MC24
to allow the audio device to join the voice conference. Devices equipped with a general
audio interface, such as mobile phones, third-party conference systems and PCs, can be
connected.
Easy to operate
• You can configure this product using its built-in Web interface (GUI screen). Not only
can you use a Web browser on the PC to configure this product, you can also monitor
active conferences and conference participants in real time.
• This product’s front panel indicator LEDs indicate connection problems as well as call
and conference status.

Data entry guidelines
Follow these guidelines when entering participant information.
1. Put quotation marks around the location number.
If you do not do this, you may experience problems when assigning location numbers
that start with zero, because Microsoft Excel automatically deletes preceding zeros.
× (0166) ○ (“0166”)
Tips
You do not need to put quotation marks around location numbers that do not start with zero.
However, the PJP-MC24 automatically puts quotation marks around all numbers when
saving data to a CSV file.
Note
• If one of the participating terminals is a PJP-50R, see page 32 for special considerations
that need to be made when choosing location number prefixes.
• Do not surround location numbers with quotation marks when entering them in the Web
interface.
2. How the PJP-MC24 handles blank spaces
• The spaces before and after character data are not recognized as data.
• Spaces inside of quotation marks are recognized as data.
• Spaces contained within characters other than commas are recognized as data.
“TokyoOffice” will be read as “TokyoOffice”
Tokyo Office will be read as “Tokyo Office”
3. How the PJP-MC24 handles single quotation marks, double quotation marks,
and commas.
They can all be used within character data.
○ Chicago’Office ○ Paris“Office ○ Beijing,Office
4. Lines that begin with a pound sign will be treated as comment lines.
5. Line feed code
CSV files are designed to be created and edited using Windows. They only use
CR+LF newline.

Step 3
Changing ProjectPhone Settings
After participant information has been configured on the PJP-MC24, configure the
participants’ ProjectPhones to join conferences via the PJP-MC24.
Configuration Flowchart
Follow these steps to configure the participants’ ProjectPhones.
2. Register SIP server information (page 45).
Configure the participant’s ProjectPhones so that they refer to the PJP-MC24 as a SIP
server.
3. Enable remote control from the PJP-MC24 (page 47).
Configure the ProjectPhone to accept control signals from the PJP-MC24 used to start
conferences.
Note
• Before performing the following operations, you need to configure the ProjectPhones network
connection settings. For more details, please see the ProjectPhone Setup Guide.
• The following explanation gives examples of how the settings would be configured using the
PJP-100H ProjectPhone.
If a participant is using a PJP-50R:
If you are using a PJP-50R and want to make calls directly to other ProjectPhones, then
you need to pay special attention to the PJP-50R dialing prefix settings.
• You can use prefixes to identify the type of network that you want to call to. To dial other
ProjectPhones, you enter the IP network prefix, followed by the location number. If you
choose not to specify a prefix for IP network calls, you can call other ProjectPhones by
simply entering their location numbers.
• However, if location numbers start with network prefix numbers (for example a network
prefix is set to zero and there is a location number “0010” then you will have to change
the PJP-50R dialing prefix settings in order to reach those location numbers. For more
details, please see the PJP-50R Basic Operation Guide.
43
Setting up a Conference
1. Set the IP address (next page).
Set the IP address, netmask, and default gateway that the ProjectPhone will use.
1. Set the IP Address

Local Conference
The mixing functions of the participant's terminals (ProjectPhones) can be used to hold up
to 30 conferences in addition to mixer conferences. Local conferences are classified into
the mesh connection type and the cascade connection type.
• The PJP-MC24 schedules conferences, manages participants and conference
resources, and constructs the conference network.
• Once connection has been established between the participants, they transfer audio
data directly with each other without going through the PJP-MC24.
