Before you install the camera, read the safety information in the documentation that accompanies the camera.

The GT Mini can be used with either a PTZ (Pan, Tilt, Zoom) video conferencing camera or with a supported USB camera.

For PTZ cameras, the required camera settings vary from camera to camera. Ensure the camera is using the correct settings. You must refer to the documentation that accompanies the camera to find out the settings for that particular camera.

PTZ cameras are supplied without a remote control as you control the camera with the StarLeaf Group Telepresence system.

Camera control for the PTZ camera

The Camera Control tab on the home screen provides you with controls for the PTZ camera. (You will not see these controls if you are using a GT Mini with a USB camera.)

Camera control on the GT Mini 3330:

The near-end camera control allows you to pan, tilt, and zoom your camera. This control is available both in a call and before you make a call. If the far end is using a PTZ camera, you might be able to control it yourself using the far-end camera (their camera) control.

Camera presets are pre-defined camera positions. For example, a pre-defined position that points the camera at the whiteboard, or that changes the camera to a wide-angled view. Select the position you require from the touchscreen controller.

Camera presets

Camera presets allow you to save up to five pre-defined camera positions. Users can then select these positions from the touchscreen controller.

To create camera presets:

  1. Use the touchscreen controller to move the camera to the required position.
  2. On the StarLeaf Portal, find the Edit room system page for this meeting room system and open the Audio and video settings.
  3. In the Portal, enter a name for the preset and select Save. To move the camera to a preset, select Test. To delete a preset, select Clear.
