How to install GTm 5140
Installing GTm 5140Last updated August 3, 2018
Before installing the StarLeaf GTm 5140, read the safety information.
Before installing the GTm 5140, ensure you have the following:
- One or two commercial displays that support a 1080p60 input format
Interlaced input is not supported.
- Use displays with an audio-output capability. If the displays have “Game Mode” or “PC Mode” options, enable either option to reduce media processing delays and improve video experience
- One of the following audio options:
- Loudspeakers and amplifiers connected to the codec
- If you are not using a separate audio system, use the supplied audio injector. For more information, refer to Using the audio injector.
- Supported video camera
- StarLeaf microphone
- StarLeaf touchscreen controller
Unpack the GTm 5140. The package contents are:
- Installation sheet
- Wall mounting kit
- Power cable
- Ethernet cable
- Two HDMI to HDMI cables to connect the codec to displays
- Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adaptor for the codec-to-screen cables
- Choose an appropriate installation site:
- The codec must be accessible with all cables easily connected
- Provide ventilation for the codec; leave a space of at least 10cm (4 inches) behind, in front, and to the left and right of the codec
- Use a grounded AC power outlet for the codec
- Wall mount the unit or place on a firm horizontal surface. The codec is 57 mm (2.24 in) high. To mount the unit, refer to Mounting the GTm 5140 unit.
Using an Ethernet cable, connect the Network port on the rear of the codec to an Ethernet switch in your network. The Ethernet port is a 10/100/1000 Mbit/s auto-sensing port and is set to ‘auto’ by default.
If your network doesn’t support automatic detection, you can configure the network speed manually. On the touchscreen controller that you have connected to the codec, go to 100Mb/s (full).and select
- Connect the
camera to the GTm with the USB cable:
- If you have a PTZ USB camera, connect it to the the Camera USB connector. This is a blue USB 3.0 connector
- If you are using a static USB camera (such as the Logitech BRIO), connect it to one of the pair of USB 2.0 connectors at the bottom of the rear panel (refer to About the GTm 5140 codec)
- Connect the microphone to the Microphone USB connector. The Microphone port labeled in About the GTm 5140 codec is the recommended port for microphone use.
On the GTm 5140, the audio emits from the Mini DisplayPort connectors on the rear of the codec. Connect directly from the Mini DisplayPort to the screen using the supplied cable and adaptor.
To do this:
- Connect a Mini DisplayPort connector on the codec to a screen using a a Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI adaptor and an HDMI-to-HDMI cable
If this is a two display system:
- Connect the second display in the same way to the other Mini DisplayPort
Prior to GTm version 1.2, you must use a supplied audio injector to connect the displays to the codec. In GTm version 1.2 and later, connect directly from the Mini DisplayPort to the display using the supplied cables (without the need for an audio injector).
Power the displays and switch them ON before you power the GTm, otherwise the displays do not detect the audio.
Using the supplied power cable, connect the DC +19V power connector on the rear of the codec to the mains power.
The StarLeaf Touch 2036 connects directly to your network. Using an Ethernet cable, connect the PoE Network port on the rear of the controller to an Ethernet switch in your network. The Ethernet port is a 10/100/1000 Mbit/s auto-sensing port and is set to ‘auto’ by default. The controller needs a switch/port that supplies PoE to function.
The speed and duplex settings at either end of the connection must be identical. Using non-matching settings causes severe packet loss.
If the controller and the codec are not paired:
- Double-tap Home to display the settings page.
- Tap the networking tab and, if enabled, turn off auto-discovery. The configuration server field is displayed
- Enter the MAC address from the bottom of the codec in the configuration server field.
StarLeaf recommends that when you mount the camera, you place it at the top of the screen, as opposed to the base. This makes it easier for you to see the participants on the screen while still appearing to make eye contact.
If you have a dual-screen system, ensure that the camera is mounted on the screen that will display the view of the main video (telepresence screen 1).
On your Skype for Business server, create a new user account for the GTm 5140 or use an existing account. Make a note of the authentication details.
