Configuring GTm 5250
Installing GTm 5250Last updated August 3, 2018
The following instructions are for setting up the GTm 5250.
- On the GTm 5250 touchscreen controller, press the home button twice to view settings, then tap networking to view the IP address.
- By default, the GTm 5250 uses DHCP to acquire an IP address. If required, you can configure the GTm 5250 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 5250.
- Select Hosted to manage the GTm with Maestro.
- If there is a proxy server for your deployment, select Configure 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 using GTm in demo/unmanaged mode, refer to Demo/Unmanaged GTm configuration.
Connect the DVI-I to DVI-I cable to Computer In 2 on the rear of the codec and leave the other end of the cable on the meeting room table. This allows users to connect a laptop to the GTm 5250 if needed. The GTm 5250 includes a selection of adaptors that can be used with the DVI-I to DVI-I cable if the video output on the laptop is not DVI-I (for example, VGA, HDMI, DVI-D).
Additionally, you can connect an HDMI source to Computer In 1 on the rear of the codec. This can be useful if you have a permanent digital source you want to connect to the GTm, such as an Apple TV or whiteboard.
Users can share content through the touchscreen controller during meetings. If more than one source is connected, the GTm 5250 displays content from the most recently connected source.
Connect PC audio out or other audio source to the audio line-in on the rear of the codec to send PC audio to the speakers at the far end of the call.
The active camera selector reflects the currently selected camera.
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.
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.
