# Initial settings

# Settings sidebar

  1. Log in to the TrueConf Room control panel.

  2. Click the /room/media/gui/gear/en.png button in the upper left corner of the control panel.

To select a language go to the Settings → Language section.

# Audio and video settings

# Video

Go to the Audio & video → Video section of the settings menu. Here, you can:

  • Select the video devices that will be used by the application

  • Enable increased frame rate for video layout preview in the control panel (disabled by default)

  • Disable camera feed when the camera is turned off at the software level

  • Configure connection parameters needed for PTZ camera control

  • Select the default content source; all video sources available for TrueConf Room are supported: webcam, capture card, NDI stream.

Instead of a camera, you can select an NDI stream available in the local network if this protocol is enabled in the Settings → Tools → Main section.


# Face tracking

TrueConf Room supports crop the video from the camera so that one can see all participants in the meeting room.


To enable this feature, go to Settings → Tools → General and check the Face tracking box.

# Audio

Go to the Audio & video → Audio section in the settings menu. Here, you can:

  • Select a device to play back application sounds, e.g., an incoming call

  • Set up echo cancellation (enabled by default)

  • Activate AI-based noise suppression (machine learning algorithms). The result will be exactly the same as in TrueConf desktop applications.

However, if you use a recording device with integrated echo cancellation/AGC mechanisms, we recommend disabling these options in the application to avoid conflicts between the algorithms.

To ensure correct work of echo cancellation, you can perform an audio test to measure the delay level of your device. To do it, click the Estimate button.


During the testing, you will hear several audio signals from the selected playback device. When the test is successfully completed, the time of delay will be displayed.

You can run the audio test again by clicking the Restart button, which will replace the Estimate button after the first successful testing.

When selecting 4K video conferencing equipment, read a simple guide to 4K video conferencing in our blog.

# Virtual background and background blurring

When cropping is enabled, background blurring and virtual backgrounds are automatically turned off.

For ease of use, you can specify the launch parameters in the settings of TrueConf Room Service so that you did not have to run TrueConf Room with a command-line parameter repeatedly.

# Background blurring

TrueConf Room supports background blurring for the video received from the camera.

To do it, run TrueConf Room with the command-line parameter --blur.

"C:\Program Files\TrueConf\Room\TrueConfRoom.exe" --blur

# Virtual background

If you want to hide your background, you can replace it with a virtual one. To do it, run TrueConf Room with the command-line parameter --background {path-to-image}.

"C:\Program Files\TrueConf\Room\TrueConfRoom.exe" --background C:/image.png

# Connection settings

Server connection settings are available in the Network section of the settings sidebar. Here you can connect TrueConf Room to a different TrueConf Server instance or TrueConf Online and set the bitrate limit for input and output streams (10 Mbit/s by default).

You can also click on the /room/media/gui/available_servers/en.png button to display the list of available servers.


If Suppress direct connection checkbox (unmarked by default) is marked, point-to-point video calls will be routed through the server.
