About the StarLeaf room experience
Using StarLeaf room systemsLast updated June 23, 2021
Every StarLeaf room system requires a touchscreen controller:
The touchscreen allows you to join and control meetings in your room system. From the touchscreen, you can access your organization’s entire directory, as well as call other people or room systems outside of your organization.
Select a topic below for more information:
- The Home screen
- Basic controls
- Joining a meeting
- Camera and screen standby behavior
- Power saving for touchscreen controllers
|Note: If you are using an older version of the touchscreen which looks like the image on the right, go to About Touch 2035/2036.|
This is the main user interface of the touchscreen:
Return to the home screen at any time tapping the icon. To access Settings, double-tap the icon.
Information about the meeting room is displayed at the top of the screen, next to the time. Here you can see:
- Room name
- Internal extension number: the number people in your organization can use to directly call the room
- External video address (if it is present): contacts outside of your organization who have their own video conferencing equipment can use this to call the room
- Direct-dial number: this number is connected to the global telephone network, allowing anyone to directly call the room using a phone
|Open the Contacts menu to view your organization’s entire directory|
Open the Recents menu to access your most recent contacts. You can also view the room system’s call history
|Open the Dialer control to call internal extensions, PSTN numbers, an IP address, URI, or a third-party meeting address on the dialer screen|
|If you are using StarLeaf room for Poly, switch to Device mode with the Use as accessory control. Refer to StarLeaf for Poly: Use as accessory for more information|
|Choose whether to have your microphone on mute or unmute before or during a call|
|Customize your camera’s point of view, and choose whether to have your camera on or off before or during a call|
|Return to the home screen. Double tap to access Settings for the touchscreen|
Adjust the output volume of your meeting room using the – and + icons

In a StarLeaf room system, cameras go into standby mode after one minute. Screens go to a black standby display after five minutes.
For admins: It is possible to enable HDMI output sleep and/or CEC via the Portal in the Audio and video settings of a room system. There are two settings that you can choose to tick: Enable HDMI output sleep and/or Enable CEC.
The backlight on a touchscreen controller dims between the hours of 7pm and 7am in the endpoint’s local timezone. When a touchscreen controller is dimmed, it shows a screen saver displaying the time. Touch the dimmed screen to switch the backlight on again. The touchscreen will not dim for one hour after the last time it was touched.
Power saving is automatically enabled for all touchscreen controllers, a display dims after ten minutes of inactivity during the day.
