Complete these steps in order to install the equipment:

 

  1. Configure the SX80 codec.
  2. Connect an RJ45 cable from the Network port 2,3 to the network port of the Speaker Track.
  3. Connect the HDMI cables from each camera to the HDMI Input port on the codec.
  4. Connect power to the Speaker Track.
  5. Connect an RJ45 cable from each camera to the respective network port on the Speaker Track.
  6. Connect power cables from each camera to the Speaker Track.

 

 

Enable the Speaker Track

 

When the cabling is complete, ensure that the Speaker Track configuration is set correctly.

Verify

 

Use this section in order to confirm that your configuration works properly.

 

  • Codec - TC7.3.0
  • Speaker Track- MT7.3.0
  • Precision60- HC7.3.0

 

  1. Make sure the codec, Speaker Track, and camera use the same software version (numbers) suffix.
  2. Check the camera status and verify that the camera Serial number and Firmware are correctly detected.

     

    xstatus Camera
    *s Camera 1 HardwareID: "55000000"
    *s Camera 1 IpAddress: "169.254.1.43"
    *s Camera 1 MacAddress: "E4:C7:22:65:3F:D3"
    *s Camera 1 Manufacturer: "Cisco"
    *s Camera 1 Model: "Precision 60 Camera"
    *s Camera 1 Position Focus: 4200
    *s Camera 1 Position Pan: 3600
    *s Camera 1 Position Tilt: -650
    *s Camera 1 Position Zoom: 4128
    *s Camera 1 SerialNumber: "FTT181100R5"
    *s Camera 1 SoftwareID: "HC7.3.0.8cb420c, 2014-12-12"
    
    *s Camera 2 HardwareID: "55000000"
    *s Camera 2 IpAddress: "169.254.1.44"
    *s Camera 2 MacAddress: "E4:C7:22:65:3F:EE"
    *s Camera 2 Manufacturer: "Cisco"
    *s Camera 2 Model: "Precision 60 Camera"
    *s Camera 2 Position Focus: 0
    *s Camera 2 Position Pan: 3600
    *s Camera 2 Position Tilt: -650

    *s Camera 2 SerialNumber: "FTT181100R1"
    *s Camera 2 SoftwareID: "HC7.3.0.8cb420c, 2014-12-12"

     

  3. Check the Speaker Track status in order to verify the availability and status.

     

    xstatus // speakerTrack
    *s Cameras SpeakerTrack Availability: Available 
    *s Cameras SpeakerTrack LeftCamera VideoInputConnector: 1
    *s Cameras SpeakerTrack RightCamera VideoInputConnector: 2
    *s Cameras SpeakerTrack Status: Active

     

  4. Verify that the Speaker Track firmware is correctly detected.

     

    xstatus // Peripherals
    *s Peripherals ConnectedDevice 1045 Name: "SpeakerTrack 60"
    *s Peripherals ConnectedDevice 1045 SoftwareInfo: "MT7.3.0.8cb420c"
    *s Peripherals ConnectedDevice 1045 Status: Connected
    *s Peripherals ConnectedDevice 1045 Type: SpeakerTracker

 

 

Troubleshoot

 

This section provides information you can use in order to troubleshoot your configuration.

 

Verify the Speaker Track status in order to make sure the cabling is set correctly.

 

xstatus // speakerTrack

*s Cameras SpeakerTrack Availability: Available
*s Cameras SpeakerTrack LeftCamera VideoInputConnector: 1
*s Cameras SpeakerTrack RightCamera VideoInputConnector: 2
*s Cameras SpeakerTrack Status: Active

 

Here is a brief description of the previous output:

 

*s Cameras SpeakerTrack Availability can have one of these states:

 

  • Off
  • Unavailable
  • Available

 

Each of the states have a different meaning:

 

  • *s Cameras SpeakerTrack Availability: Off - this means that the Speaker Track option is turned off from the configuration.
  • *s Cameras SpeakerTrack Status: Unavailable - this means that the Control (Speaker Track/Camera) has an issue.
  • *s Cameras SpeakerTrack Availability: Available - this means that the control cabling is set correctly.

 

*s Cameras SpeakerTrack LeftCamera VideoInputConnector: 1
*s Cameras SpeakerTrack RightCamera VideoInputConnector: 2

 

This status depicts the HDMI connection of the camera to the codec. The previous status is the expected output if the connection is correct .

 

If the HDMI cable from the Left camera is unplugged, the status changes to:

 

*s Cameras SpeakerTrack LeftCamera VideoInputConnector: 0
*s Cameras SpeakerTrack RightCamera VideoInputConnector: 2

 

If the HDMI cable from the Right camera is unplugged, the status changes to:

 

*s Cameras SpeakerTrack LeftCamera VideoInputConnector: 1
*s Cameras SpeakerTrack RightCamera VideoInputConnector: 0

 

This might cause the Speaker Track to not function.

 

*s Cameras SpeakerTrack Status: Inactive

 

The user has selected Manual Tracking and Auto Tracking has been disabled from the Touch Panel. This can be enabled with the xCommand Cameras SpeakerTrack Activate command.

 

 

Diagnostics

 

In order to verify the functionality of the face detection mechanism, enter this command to start the Active speaker and face detection:

 

xCommand Experimental SpeakerTrack Diagnostics Start Tracking: On
