LIS Portable Polycom

This unit can be used in any of the 150 small study rooms downstairs in the Library. 

Setting up: 

Plug in the power cord and the CAT 5 cable (internet cable).  Make sure to plug the internet cable into the jack that is labled Polycom Only!  If it is not plugged into this jack you will not be able get an outside connection.

Turn on the monitor.  

Use Polycom remote to turn on the Polycom unit.  This might tack 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 I.P. address's available.

Typing the I.P. Address

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

After you have dialed the I.P. 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 I.P. 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.  A Media Services Tech will come take care of the unit.
