Admin UI: Using the Login and Settings Tabs

Follow

This article describes how to use the VidyoRoom™ Admin UI Login and Settings tabs, and contains the following sections and subsections:

 

Logging In and Out

After you first boot up the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600, the Home screen typically appears. If you have more than one display, you will see the IP address of the system on one of the displays. You use this IP address to access the Admin UI. Alternatively, you can go to the Settings screen of the On-Screen UI to obtain the IP address.

If you need the IP address of the system once you are already logged into the Admin UI, click the Identify button on the Display Layout page. You can also use the CTRL + I keyboard command to get the IP address.

 

Logging In

To log in to the Admin UI:

  1. Enter the IP address or FQDN of the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 in the URL bar of your web browser:

    [IP address or FQDN]

    The Admin UI Login page displays.

    Configuring_the_Account_Settings_1.png

  2. Click the blue triangle next to the word Account to view the account settings if needed.

  3. Enter the VidyoPortal FQDN in the VidyoPortal field.

    If a secured VidyoPortal is being used and port 80 is not open, you must explicitly add https:// to the VidyoPortal FQDN; otherwise, the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 will be unable to log in to the VidyoPortal.



  4. Enter your VidyoPortal user name (as created on the VidyoPortal) in the Username field.

  5. Enter your VidyoPortal password (as created on the VidyoPortal) in the Password field.

  6. Click Apply.

 

Configuring the Network Settings

When configuring the network settings as described here, you should also consider the following:

  • VidyoRoom and VidyoPanorama 600 are automatically configured to respond to Wake-on-LAN (WoL) packet requests. Review your current firewall settings and make sure they permit WoL requests over ports 7 and 9.

  • To ensure proper functioning of the system and to support all of its features, the following ports are opened on the VidyoRoom side: 8090, 60777, and 63459. Please ensure that no firewall or other restriction is blocking these ports in your network. In addition, either port 80 or port 443 can be blocked, but they cannot both be blocked at the same time.

To configure the network settings:

    1. Click the Settings tab.

      Configuring_the_Network_Settings_1.png

    2. Click the blue triangle next to the word Network to view the network settings if needed.

Configuring the Advanced Phoenix Settings

Firmware for the Phoenix PowerHub and Quattro is needed to support this functionality. This firmware will be included as part of the VidyoRoom installer for versions 3.3.21 and later. Phoenix will provide the new firmware for the Phoenix Spider devices to support these controls in the near future. 

The settings described in this section are not applicable to VidyoRoom HD-230 Rev A and Rev B or to VidyoRoom SE running on any hardware.

 

To configure the advanced Phoenix settings:

  1. Click the Settings tab.

    Configuring_the_Advanced_Phoenix_Settings_1.png

  2. Click the blue triangle next to the word Advanced Phoenix Settings to view the advanced Phoenix settings if needed.

    By default, Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode is disabled, enabling the Automatic Volume Control, Automatic Gain Control, Noise Cancellation, and Mixer settings.

    Deselecting the Automatic Gain Control, Noise Cancellation, and Mixer checkboxes enables Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode. If you do not want to retain these default settings, then you can always make configuration changes to meet your specific needs.

    Caution: You should only adjust the advanced Phoenix settings if you have the knowledge and expertise to make configuration changes. Otherwise, consult an expert or retain the default system configurations.



  3. Deselect the Automatic Volume Control checkbox if you do not want to adjust the volume or loudness of the audio signal.

    The remote control API can still be used to enable or disable Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode. Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode remains in effect until the end of the call. Since Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode is automatically disabled by default, it has to be re-enabled at the beginning of each call.

    If the Phoenix Quattro device is connected to a Phoenix PowerHub, then the All Microphones and Single Microphone radio buttons will not display.



  9. Select the All Microphones radio button if you want audio to be heard from all microphones on the Phoenix Quattro device.

  10. Select the Single Microphone radio button if you want audio to be heard from only one microphone on the Phoenix Quattro device.

    The Admin UI does not allow you to select a specific microphone. The second microphone inside the Phoenix Quattro device is selected as the single microphone by default when the Single Microphone radio button is selected.

    Selecting the Single Microphone radio button is only allowed when the Phoenix Quattro device is plugged directly into the VidyoRoom system instead of being daisy chained via the Power Hub.



  11. Click the Save button.

    Changes made here are not applied to the Phoenix device until the Save button is clicked.



    If Write Protection Mode is enabled, Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode will automatically be disabled after clicking the Save button. After the VidyoRoom system is rebooted, Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode will revert back to its previous state prior to Write Protection Mode being enabled.

  2. Click the blue triangle next to the word Preferences to view the preference settings if needed.

  3. Select the Auto Answer checkbox if you want the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to automatically answer incoming calls.

  4. Select the Join/Exit Tones checkbox if you want to hear a tone whenever someone joins or exits a conference.

  5. Select the Allow Remote User to Control Camera checkbox if you want to allow remote users to control your camera.

    For this option to work, the camera must be capable of pan, tilt, and zoom.

  6. Select the Enable On-Screen UI checkbox if you want the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to display the on-screen user interface.

  7. Select the Selfview Loopback checkbox if you want to view the loopback of your self-view from the VidyoRouter™ (as opposed to your local self-view) when you are the only one in the conference.

  8. Enter the number of seconds after which the screen saver will display in the Screen Saver Timeout field, or enter 0 if you do not want the screen saver to display.

  9. Select the RIP Listener Service checkbox if you want to enable the RIP listener service.

    Some corporate networks may have firewall rules that cause the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 systems to scan for all available routes. As a result, the VidyoRooms or VidyoPanorama 600s can take up to five minutes to log into the VidyoPortal after reboot. For such environments, you can disable the RIP Listener Service to allow the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to log into the VidyoPortal as soon as it is up after reboot.

  10. Configure the audio by doing the following:
    • Select the Enable AEC checkbox if you want to enable Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC).

      AEC removes echoes, which results in clearer audio.

    • Select the Enable Audio Processing checkbox if you want to enhance the audio signal of the speaker.

      Selecting this checkbox improves the audio quality by removing echo (AEC), removing unwanted background noise (noise suppression), and additional audio improvements.

      Since the ability to configure AEC existed in the product before Audio Processing was added to the Settings page, the two options remain configurable for the user via this page. However, because AEC is a component of Audio Processing, Vidyo highly recommends leaving both checkboxes in the same state (that is, either both selected or neither selected).



  11. Select the Enable Wall Clock checkbox if you want a clock to be displayed at the bottom center of the screen during video calls.

  12. Select the SNMP checkbox if you want to enable the SNMP interface.

    When enabled, a third party can use the SNMP protocol to configure and control VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 with their UI.

  13. Select the Show Participant Labels checkbox if you want to display the participants’ names on-screen during conferences.

  14. Select the Auto Join My Meeting checkbox if you want to automatically join your room whenever you log in.

  15. Select the Auto Upgrade checkbox if you want to automatically upgrade your VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 whenever a new version is available on the VidyoPortal.

    This upgrade is not the image upgrade, which you must manually initiate using either the Firmware tab or the Recovery Console. For more information about the Firmware tab, see Updating the Firmware and Using Write Protection Mode article. For more information about the Recovery Console, see Using the VidyoRoom Recovery Console article.



  16. Select the Preview Local Content checkbox if you want to preview locally shared content before sharing it with other sites.

  17. Enter the number of seconds in the Display Sleep Timeout field and select the Power Saving Mode checkbox if you want the displays to go to sleep after a specified number of seconds of inactivity.

    If you do not want the displays to go to sleep, deselect the Power Saving Mode checkbox.

    Once the displays go into Power Saving Mode, you can wake them up by pressing any button on the remote control or by joining a room using the VidyoRemote. Incoming calls will also wake up the displays.

  18. Select the Enable HDMI-CEC checkbox if you want to use VidyoRoom to switch your TVs that are connected using a Pulse-Eight USB-CEC adapter on and off.

    This will work for most TV models. You can enable your VidyoRoom to switch the TVs on and off using the VidyoRoom Remote Control API commands. Using the commands, you can control the TV input and set it to where the VidyoRoom is connected. For more information about the VidyoRoom API commands, refer to the VidyoRoom and VidyoPanorama 600 Remote Control API User Guide.  



  19. Select the Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode checkbox if you want the audio to be received in its native state; otherwise, leave the Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode checkbox deselected if you want the audio to be processed by the Phoenix device.

    If enabling Phoenix Super Sensitive Mode, please ensure that the Enable Audio Processing checkbox is deselected; otherwise, the audio will be processed by the VidyoRoom system. The Super Sensitive fields only display if you have a Phoenix PowerHub or Spider connected to your system.



  20. Select the Enable Prolific Recovery checkbox if you want your VidyoRoom system to automatically reboot in order to recover the camera when an issue occurs with a VISCA cable.

  21. Select the Enable Settings Access Code checkbox and then enter the access code in the Settings Access Code field if you want to set an access code so that only those people who know the code can make changes to the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 settings.

  22. Leave the Button Press URL field blank in most cases.

    However, if you have a custom application that uses a dedicated button to activate a URL, enter the URL in the Button Press URL field.

  23. Select one of the following Auto-Share Connected Devices radio buttons:
    • Select the Remember Last radio button if you want the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to remember the content share status from the last conference.

      For example, if content was being shared in a conference and the conference ended without stopping the content share, when the next conference started, sharing would start automatically if you selected the Remember Last radio button.

    • Select the Off radio button if you do not want VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to automatically share when a conference starts.

      For example, if you selected the Off radio button, sharing would not start automatically. This option is not applicable for the VidyoRoom HD-40.

  24. Edit the default 4000 ms value in the VISCA Passthrough Timeout field if you want to change the VISCA passthrough timeout value.

    The four-second (4000 ms) VISCA passthrough timeout was added to prevent the VidyoRoom from returning “buffer full” messages in response to VISCA commands.

    If a VISCA communication issue occurs with the camera, the VidyoRoom system will reboot once the conference is over in order to recover the camera. Note that when this issue occurs, the camera control may or may not work correctly, and there will be no indication of the cause of the reboot on the On Screen UI.



  25. Deselect the Call In Progress Indicator checkbox if you do not want the Call In Progress Indicator to display during active calls; otherwise leave selected.

  26. Deselect the Reset Camera Position After Conference checkbox if you want the camera position to remain unchanged at the end of each call.

    In order to use this feature, besides selecting the Reset Camera Position After Conference checkbox, you must also have a Sony® camera and you must have set the camera Preset 1 and 2 positions using the camera controls. If you have done so:

    • When the user joins a conference, the camera will move to Preset 2 and the message “RECALL 2 OK” will be displayed both locally and remotely for one or two seconds.

    • When the user disconnects from a conference, the camera will move to Preset 1 and the message “RECALL 1 OK” will be displayed locally only for about a half second.

 

Configuring the Language and Time Zone

To configure the language and time zone: 

  1. Click the Settings tab.

    Configuring_the_Language_and_Time_Zone_1.png

  5. Select System if you want the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to display in the system language selected on the VidyoPortal.

 

Configuring VidyoRoom Pairing

The VidyoRoom Pairing feature is a feature that is being introduced in phases. The first phase, which was part of the VidyoRoom version 3.3.11 release, is described in this section.


The VidyoRoom pairing feature enables you to use the cameras from two or more VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 systems in your conference. This feature is especially useful in larger conference rooms where you might want to use more than one camera to capture the active speaker.

Vidyo recommends this feature only for use at sites that have a device that can balance and route the transmitted audio (such as a Biamp®).

To configure VidyoRoom Pairing:

  1. Click the Settings tab.

    Configuring_VidyoRoom_Pairing_1.png

  2. Click the blue triangle next to the words VidyoRoom Pairing to view the VidyoRoom pairing settings if needed.

  3. Select the Make this VidyoRoom part of a paired VidyoRooms group checkbox if you want to pair this VidyoRoom with other VidyoRoom(s).

  4. Enter a name for the group of paired VidyoRooms in the Group Name field.

    You must give the same group name to the other paired VidyoRooms in the group. For example, if you want to pair an HD-230 and a VidyoPanorama 600 that are both located in Conference Room A, you must give both the HD-230 and VidyoPanorama 600 the same group name, such as “Conference Room A.”

  5. Select the Make this VidyoRoom Primary checkbox if you want this to be the Primary VidyoRoom among the paired VidyoRooms.

    If you select a VidyoRoom as the Primary VidyoRoom, only that VidyoRoom will broadcast the incoming audio.

    To ensure clear audio, you should use this feature only if your configuration includes a device that can balance and route transmitted audio (such as a Biamp).



  6. Select the Do not show video streams from paired VidyoRooms checkbox and the Do not show shared content from paired VidyoRooms checkbox if you want only the Primary VidyoRoom to show video or shared content.

    These checkboxes give you more control over what the VidyoRooms display. For example, if the Primary VidyoRoom has a large screen, you may want it to display only shared content, while the other VidyoRooms display video.

  7. Click Apply.
