Advanced Audio Configuration

System administrators can adjust the advanced audio system parameters to cater for bespoke meeting rooms, training/class rooms, or auditoriums which often have rows of chairs and a lectern, and where the installation of third-party ceiling and/or hand-held microphones with an external DSP (Digital Signal Processor) to handle the audio is required. Often in these applications, local sound reinforcement is used whereby the local audio is amplified within the room for the local audience. In these cases it is highly recommended to use an external audio DSP to correctly handle the audio echo cancellation (AEC), automatic gain control (AGC) and required volume levels. 

The options available to system administrators and/or AV installers to reconfigure the system for these use cases are as follows:

  • Set the Audio Input - Allows the selection of the preferred microphone input source. Valid options are Phone HD, Micpod, USB 1, USB 2, and Line In.
    • Line In Gain - Allows administrators to select the analogue audio input gain. Valid options are Line Level, Mic Level, or Mic with Boost
      NOTE: Only available when Line In is the selected audio input source. 
    • Audio Integrator Mode - Enabling this option reconfigures the system for use with an external audio solution
      NOTE: Only available when Line In is the selected audio input source.
      • Audio Output = Line Out
      • Audio Processing = Use External DSP (Internal AEC and AGC are disabled)
  • Set the Audio Output - Allows the selection of the audio output. Valid options are Line Out, Phone HD, USB 1, USB 2, or HDMI Out

Additional system audio controls are available via CLISH. 

System administrators can also choose to enable the Show Advanced Audio Settings option, which provides user accessible controls within the Phone HD. For more information, please refer to Phone HD - Advance Audio Settings
