Configuring the GTm 5140
Installing GTm 5140Last updated July 25, 2018
The following instructions are for setting up the GTm 5140.
- On the GTm 5140 touchscreen controller, press the home button twice to view settings. In networking, view the IP address.
By default, the GTm 5140 uses DHCP to acquire an IP address. If required, you can configure the GTm 5140 with a static IP address. In networking, toggle DHCP off and tap to enter the IP address, netmask, and gateway addresses.
If the addresses entered are invalid, you are not notified in the touchscreen. Ensure you enter correct details in the networking fields.
- In a web browser, navigate to the IP address of the GTm 5140.
- Select Hosted to manage the GTm with Maestro.
- If there is a proxy server for your deployment, select Configure the proxy server. Select Automatically detect settings or Manual configuration and enter the information in the fields as needed.
Only select On-premise if a dedicated Maestro installation has been configured on your local network by StarLeaf
For more information about configuring the GTm through the Maestro management platform, start here: Introduction to Maestro.
For more information about using GTm in demo/unmanaged mode, refer to Demo/Unmanaged GTm configuration.
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.
Camera presets are predefined camera positions. For example, a predefined position that points the camera at the whiteboard, or changes the camera to a wide-angled view. You can add up to five camera presets that can be selected by users on the touchscreen.
On the touchscreen, select a position from the Camera Control tab. You can swap between presets at any time.
There are a few methods you can use to share content from a laptop. The first, and the easiest, is to use a sharing device. After you have paired the device with the GTm 5140, plug it into your laptop and follow the instructions given for the device. The other two methods are for sharing your screen with a room or a conference without a sharing device using Skype for Business.
For more information and further instructions, refer to Connecting a laptop to the GTm.
When the GTm goes into standby mode, the screens darken, the microphone is disabled, and the camera turns away from the room. The touchscreen controller does not dim unless it is during out-of-hours.
The GTm does not go into this state if an active content source is connected. If you touch the controller or connect a content source, the GTm comes out of standby mode such that the screens will display the content. The camera and microphone will come out of standby mode if there is an active call.
Standby mode can be configured using Maestro. For more information, refer to Meeting room management.
