Videoconferencing at UVa
Use of the Polycom Viewstation Endpoint with the Codian MCU
Polycom Viewstation Use
These instructions should be applicable to most Polycom models since they all use similar software.
Select Video Call on the home screen.
Rather than “dial” another endpoint, call the Multipoint Control Unit (MCU). Enter the IP address using the remote control. The bandwidth can be selected using the middle button in the row below.
Then press the Call button (green) on the remote.
After the Connecting screen, the conference list is displayed.
Navigate the conference list by using the FAR camera control on the remote.
Notes: PIP goes away after the remote is put down (there are sensors on the back).
The FAR control times out after a few seconds; an icon on the screen is shown while it is active.
