New features in GTm 1.3.12

New meeting room screen

The meeting room screen has been redesigned to provide you with a complete overview about the day’s scheduled meetings. In-room notifications display all current and upcoming meetings, and room availability. For example:

This display now shows:

  • All meetings: in previous releases, the screen only displayed Skype for Business meetings. In this version, all meeting types are listed on the room screen and touchscreen
  • Room availability: at the bottom of the screen, blue squares indicate the time(s) at which the room is booked
  • Current and next meetings: the panels on the right list the current meeting, the time at which the room is next available, if the room is available now, the time of the next meeting, or if the room is available all day when no meetings are scheduled
  • Overlapping meetings: if two meetings are active at the same time, multiple room bookings is displayed on the screen. On the touchscreen, a green overlapping meetings message is shown

Touchscreen meeting display

You can now join meetings at any time, even before previous meetings are scheduled to end. On the homescreen, tap the meetings tab to view up to 30 meetings that start on the current day.

TV standby mode

If TV standby is enabled in Maestro, you can now select Black or DPMS Sleep (to turn outputs off then back on when it goes off standby) modes.

Sharing and receiving content

GTm now allows you to share and receive content during Skype for Business audio only calls.

Audio settings

On the GTm 5250, a new audio output setting is available in Maestro. The Output Device option now contains a Line-Out (Consumer) feature, allowing you to adjust audio output levels.

GTm Endpoint Control API

  • Hide picture-in-picture: the GTm Endpoint Control API now allows you to control picture-in-picture (PiP) settings. This can be used, for example, if you want to hide the row of video participants when viewing content on a single screen. The new pipaction allows you to switch PiP off or automatically use the PiP setting in the touchscreen
  • Screen layout: The layout action allows you to scroll through next or previous screen layouts during meetings
