Using the Carr 005 Media Equipment

Carr 005 Polycom

Using the Polycom

Power on the TV. Use the Polycom remote to turn on the Polycom unit (the remote control for Polycom is in the rack drawer). This might take 1-2 minutes. When it is on and all set up the camera should swing around facing front. On the monitor screen you will see the room with a box that is the Main Menu. From here you can type in a new I.P. address using the Polycom remote or you can choose Address Book or recent calls to choose to connect to one of the IP addresses available.

Typing the IP Address

Use the number keys on the Polycom remote to type the IP address. To get the dot use the -> key. The unit will say what number and when you have a dot.

After you have dialed the IP you can press the green phone button, this will initiate the call. A small circle will appear in the lower left corner of the screen, it will fill 1/4 to 3/3s with blue while ringing, when it connects the dot will turn green. It should connect almost immediately. If it does not connect after about 5 rings then 1 of 3 things could be wrong, the IP address is not correct, the other end has not turned on their videoconferencing unit, or the internet connection is having problems. Call the Helpdesk at x2200 if this is the case.

When you are finished, you can turn off the Polycom unit using the remote as well as the monitor.
