  2. Click the blue triangle next to the word Audio to view the audio settings if needed.

  3. Select the microphone device that the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 will use from the Microphones drop-down.

  4. Slide the Microphone slider bar left or right as needed to decrease or increase the microphone volume.

  5. Select the speaker device that the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 will use from the Speakers drop-down.

  6. Slide the Speaker slider bar left or right as needed to decrease or increase the speaker volume.

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.

  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.

  4. Deselect the Automatic Gain Control checkbox if you do not want to automatically control the gain of the audio signal.

  5. Deselect the Noise Cancellation checkbox if you do not want to reduce background noise.

  6. Deselect the Mixer checkbox if you do not want to route or change the volume level and dynamics of the audio signal.

  7. Click the Super Sensitive On button if you want the audio to be received in its native state if not already enabled.

  8. Click the Super Sensitive Off button if you want the audio to be processed by the Phoenix Quattro device if not already enabled.

    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.

Configuring the Video Settings

To configure the video settings:

  1. Click the Settings tab.

  3. Select the camera that the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 will use from the Cameras drop-down.

  4. Select one of the Transmit Bandwidth radio buttons to set the maximum video transmit bandwidth.

    The options available depend upon the VidyoRoom model.

  5. Select one of the Transmit Resolution radio buttons to set the video transmit resolution.

    The options available depend upon which Transmit Bandwidth you selected.

  6. Select one of the Transmit Framerate radio buttons to set the frames per second of the camera.

    The options available depend upon which Transmit Bandwidth you selected.

  7. Click Apply Transmit Settings.

  8. Do any of the following for Camera Control if necessary:
    • Click Reset Camera to reset the camera.
    • Click Backlight On or Backlight Off as needed to compensate for backlighting.

  9. Select one of the following Anti-Flicker Mode radio buttons:
    • Select the 50Hz radio button if your VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 system is located in Europe.
    • Select the 60Hz radio button if your system is located in North America.
    • Select the Off radio button to turn Anti-Flicker Mode off.

  10. Select the Auto-reboot if INOGENI is not detected checkbox if you have a VidyoRoom HD-40 Revision B system with an INOGENI device.
