Configuring the GTm 5140
Installing GTm 5140Last updated November 20, 2017
The following instructions are for setting up the GTm 5140.
- On the GTm 5140 touchscreen controller, press the settings button to view settings and the IP address.
- In a web browser, navigate to the IP address of the GTm 5140.
- Select a configuration. If you are using Maestro, choose Hosted or On-premise, or choose Demo/Unmanaged if you will not use Maestro to manage the GTm. If you choose Demo/Unmanaged, you configure the GTm using its web interface; the settings are available under Status. If you choose Maestro, you will manage the GTm using Maestro and you will only configure proxy settings, if required, through the web interface.
- : If there is a proxy server for your deployment, you need to configure the details of that for the GTm. Note that this is the same configuration as you would use for a PC running a Skype for Business/Lync client in the same location on your network. To configure the proxy server settings, go to

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 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. Room users can select the position they require from the Camera Control tab on the touchscreen controller and they can swap between presets at any time.
GTm room systems can have up to five camera presets.
You will create the camera presets using Maestro.
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, and the microphone and camera are disabled. 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 disabled using Maestro. For more information, refer to Meeting room management.
