How to Control TrueConf Group

There are several ways to control the endpoint:

  • Meeting room:

    • Using the remote control (an IR receiver is built in the front of the device)

    • Using hot keys on a USB keyboard connected to the endpoint

  • Remotely using the web interface in the local network

The remote control is powered by two AAA batteries (included).

Endpoint Home Screen

Once you have turned on the device, TrueConf Group home screen should appear:

  • Upper part: Local network connection state (endpoint IP address if connection is successful or Contacts otherwise), date, and time

  • Central part: Main menu

/group/media/main_menu/en.png
  • Lower part: Panel containing information about connected monitors (it automatically disappears after a few seconds) and endpoint notification icons:

  • Image from a webcam connected to the endpoint as a background

To go to any section in the main menu, you need to move the focus to it by using the arrow buttons on the remote control or keyboard and press <OK.

Note

The remote control has buttons for most menu sections, which allow you to open them in one click. For example, the above main menu is assigned to the following buttons: Dial, Contacts, History, Settings.

See below for a complete list of buttons in Remote Control Buttons section.

To choose an item in the drop-down list or enter text, you need to move the focus to the corresponding element and press OK.

In addition, you can use the onscreen or regular keyboard to enter text. To call the onscreen keyboard, focus on the field and press Keyboard on the remote control.
