There are two categories of videoconferencing rooms where the interaction with the audio visual and videoconferencing system is by way of a Tandberg Remote Control
Venues fitted with flat screens
Venues fitted with projectors
In those rooms fitted with two side by side mounted flat screens, the screens will come alive once you grab hold of the remote control.
Once the flat screens are activated/the projectors are up and running, you will see the following screen:
With the Tandberg Remote Control firmly in your hand, point it towards the videoconferencing unit in the room and press the button marked selfview. This will show you the current camera angle.
The main camera is situated on top of the videoconferencing unit - zoom, pan and tilt the camera by pressing the appropriate buttons on the Tandberg Remote Control.
The presenter camera is used to project the image of the presenter to the Far End – usually mounted in the ceiling towards the rear of the room or along the back wall – controlled by a separate remote control as per the image below.

Townsville users will see this:

A short dial tone is heard before the connection is made and the screen is replaced with a camera shot of the room at the other end – Far End – if the connection was successful.
Once the connection has been established, you are able to add your presentation to the conference by pressing one of the five buttons at the top on the Tandberg Remote, Main Camera, PC, Document Camera, DVD or Aux Camera. That way you can send both the video stream of the presenter and the presentation to the Far End.
