Tandberg Codec

The two flat panel displays and the Tandberg Codec are normally in standby mode. For system management purposes, the codec and screens need to be powered on at all times.

To activate the screens pick up the Tandberg Remote Control and press the OK button. Both screens will display the ARC splash screen.

Panel Inputs:

If there is nothing at all on the displays, make sure they have power switched on and are set to the correct input. The panel to your left should be set to input VIDEO (use the TV remote control to change input) and the panel to your right should be set to RGB/HV. A little green light to your left on the front indicates the Tandberg Codec is powered on. If not, the switch is on the right hand side at the rear of the codec.

Audio adjustment:

Once the call has been connected you will see the far end room on the left panel and yourselves on the right panel. Use the VOLUME CONTROL +/- on the Tandberg Remote to adjust incoming audio. If there is still no audio, use the TV Remote to adjust volume on the Left Display. Make sure your own microphone is not muted.

Showing a Presentation Locally:

The system is set to automatically go to Standby after a while. To delay the sleep mode, press the disconnect_conference.jpg on the Tandberg Remote and select Delay Standby for 1 or 3 hours.

  1. Connect the laptop to the audio visual system using the cable provided

  2. Press the presentation button (blue)on the Tandberg Remote

  3. Press the Selfview button on the same remote

Return system to standby mode:

At the end of your session, please return the system to standby mode by pressing the disconnect_conference.jpg twice
