Every room system comes with a touchscreen controller: the StarLeaf Touch. You use the touchscreen controller as the means for making and controlling video calls with the room system. Through the touchscreen controller, you can access the directory and contacts. You can use the touchscreen controller to create ad hoc conferences, and to add and remove participants.

If you are an existing customer using a touchscreen controller with an older user interface and would like to have the new UI as shown above, please contact StarLeaf Support.

The figure below shows the features on the front of the StarLeaf Touch.

Out-of-hours power saving for touchscreen controllers

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. There is no configuration.

Camera and screen behavior

In a StarLeaf room system, cameras go into standby mode after 1 minute. Screens go to a black standby display after 5 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.
