Each preset stores the camera number, its zoom level, and the direction it points. Nearsite presets remain in effect until you delete or change them. If the far site allows you to control its cameras, you can also create presets to control the far-site camera. These presets are stored on your system and are not available to the far site. In addition, you may also be able to use presets that were created at the far site to control the far-site camera, if that system is designed to use the industry standards for camera presets.

INCLUDING MULTIPLE SITES IN CALLS
Including Multiple Sites in Calls
You can use the ViewStation system to participate in multipoint conferences. During a multipoint conference, a multipoint conferencing unit (MCU) enables you to see video from the various sites so that you can see and hear the participant who is speaking. You can also share content in a multipoint call, just as you can in a point-to-point call.
About Multipoint Calls
The ViewStation system lets you connect to multipoint calls using an external MCU. If your system includes the optional internal MCU, you can also make multipoint calls with the ViewStation system. The type of MCU affects the conference as shown in this table: This MCU Internal MCU Lets you include Up to four video sites, including this site Number of sites allowed by the MCU Supports these calls IP, ISDN, or both Lets you add sites Before the call begins and after the call connects Before the call begins
IP, ISDN, or both
Placing a Multipoint Call
How you place a multipoint call depends on whether youre using the internal MCU option or an external MCU. If your organization uses Polycoms PathNavigator, you can also use PathNavigators Conference on Demand feature to place multipoint calls. For calls using the internal MCU option, you can define a multipoint address book entry to call all of the sites at one time. Or you can place a call, and then add other sites after the call connects. For calls using an external MCU, you may need to enter calling information about all of the sites before the call begins. Contact your system administrator for more information. For calls using PathNavigators Conference on Demand feature, the system administrator must: Register the ViewStation system with PathNavigator. Configure the ViewStation system to use PathNavigator for multipoint calls. Create a multi-site entry in the address book.
Contact your system administrator for more information about PathNavigator.
For cascading multipoint calls, far site participants add additional sites to the multipoint call after the call has been initiated by the main site. To place a multipoint call by adding sites to a call: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Call the first site. When the call connects, press Select Add Video Call. Place a call to the next site. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 until all the sites are connected. Call Hang Up.
To place a multipoint call using the address book: 1. 2. 3. Select Video Call from the main screen. Select Multipoint from the Video Phone screen. Enter the names of the sites you want to call in either of these ways: Select a name from the address book by selecting the Address icon.

To place a cascaded multipoint call: 1. 2. Place a multi-site call from the Address Book, or place calls one at a time to up to three other sites. Ask each site to call up to two additional sites.
The far sites in the original multipoint call can each call out to two video sites and one audio-only site. For more information about cascading calls, please refer to the Administrators Guide for ViewStation EX, FX, and VS4000.

However, if that site is interrupted for several seconds, the system switches to Discussion mode. Discussion View all of the sites at the same time, including your own site. If you have a single-monitor system, all the sites appear on the monitor in as many windows as there are sites in the call. If you have a dual-monitor system, and are in a three-site call, each far site appears full screen on a monitor and your site appears in the PIP on the main monitor. If you have dual-monitor system and are in a four or more site call, your site appears in the second monitor and the far sites all appear in windows on the first monitor. If you have at least as many monitors as sites, each site (including your own) appears on a separate monitor. This multipoint viewing mode is also known as continuous presence.

Tips for Great Audio
Place the microphone on the table in front of the people in the meeting. If your room is very large, consider adding another microphone. Speak in your normal voice without shouting. Ask the people at the other site if they can hear you. Have them introduce themselves so you can be sure that you can hear them. Since the audio has a very slight delay, you may want to pause briefly for others to answer you or to make comments. Dont place papers or other objects on or in the way of the microphone, and dont rustle papers or tap on the microphone or table. As with any meeting, try to limit side conversations.
Tips for Sharing Documents
Attach a laptop or a desktop PC to your system (if your system includes the Visual Concert FX). You can then show documents that are stored on the laptop or PC to the other people in the conference. Check that your system has the application you need to share your documents, such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Project, or Word.
