Configuring GTm 5250
Installing GTm 5250Last updated May 30, 2017
The following instructions are for setting up the GTm 5250.
- On the GTm 5250 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 5250.
- Select a configuration. If you are using Maestro, choose Hosted or On-premise, or choose Demo/Unmanaged if the GTm endpoint isn’t being managed on the Maestro platform. If you choose Demo/Unmanaged, all settings need to be changed under Status. Otherwise, settings for individual GTm endpoints can be managed in Maestro and only the proxy settings that appear on selection need to be set in the web interface.
For more information on configuring the proxy settings, refer to Network configuration.
For more information on other configuration settings you can set for the endpoint, refer to Managing GTm configuration settings.
Connect the DVI-I to DVI-I cable to Computer In 2 on the rear of the codec. For the convenience of the GTm 5250 users, leave the other end of the cable on the meeting room table. This allows users to connect a laptop to the GTm 5250 when they need to do so. The GTm 5250 includes a selection of adaptors to be used with the DVI-I to DVI-I cable where the video output of a PC is other than 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 where you have a permanent digital source that you want to connect to the GTm, for example an Apple TV or whiteboard.
When users are in a meeting, they can select to share content using the touchscreen controller. If more than one source is connected, the GTm 5250 displays content from the most-recently connected source.
Connect PC audio out (or indeed another 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.
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.
