Positioning the Teamline 5250 system

  1. Choose an appropriate installation site:
    • The system must be accessible to ensure all cables are easily connected
    • Provide ventilation for the system; leave a space of at least 10cm (4 inches) behind, in front, and to the left and right of the system
    • Use a grounded AC power outlet for the system
  2. Rack mount the unit or place on firm horizontal surface. The system is 1.5 U high (with removable feet detached) and is designed to fit in standard 19-inch racks. If you are using wireless (for example, Miracast) to connect devices to present content in meetings, ensure the system is not enclosed in a rack or behind a display. Otherwise, the wireless signal may not function.

Connecting network cables to the Teamline system

When connecting HDMI or DVI cables to the camera inputs, the PC input, and the display outputs, ensure you use the correct gauge of HDMI/DVI cable. For short cable lengths of up to 5m (17 feet), use 28AWG or thicker core. For longer lengths, use 24AWG or thicker. StarLeaf does not support the use of HDMI or DVI cables of longer than 15m (49 feet) with the Teamline system.

  1. Using an Ethernet cable, connect the StarLeaf Controller Only connector on the Teamline system to the PoE network port on the rear of the Touch. The Touch must connect directly to the Teamline 5250. Do not connect the Touch through a switch. The network port on the Touch is marked with this symbol:
  2. Using the second Ethernet cable, connect the Network port on the rear of the Teamline system to an Ethernet switch in your network. The Ethernet port is a 10/100/1000 Mbit/s auto-sensing port and is set to ‘auto’ by default.

If your network doesn’t support automatic detection, you can configure the network speed manually. On the touchscreen controller connected to the Teamline system, go to settings > networking > network port speed and select 100Mb/s (full).

The icons in the top-left corner of the touchscreen show the status of connected devices:

Connecting the Touch

Using an Ethernet cable, connect the PoE Network port on the rear of the touchscreen to an Ethernet switch in your network. The Ethernet port is a 10/100/1000 Mbit/s auto-sensing port and is set to ‘auto’ by default. The touchscreen needs a switch/port that supplies PoE to function. For more information about configuring the Touch, see Configuring Teamline 5250.

The speed and duplex settings at either end of the connection must be identical. Using non-matching settings causes severe packet loss.

Connecting the camera and microphone

To connect the camera and microphone(s):

  1. Connect the PTZ camera to Camera In with the VISCA control cable and the supplied HDMI video input cable, then connect power to the camera.
  2. Connect the microphone to Microphone In with the supplied microphone cable. If required, you can connect third-party microphones to either the XLR connectors or the Line-In connector.

For more information about microphones, see Microphone selection, placement, and setup.

Connecting displays and audio

Connect the display to Video Out HDMI 1 on the system. If you have a second display, connect it to Video Out HDMI 2.

The audio emits from the audio-out connector on the rear of the system. Connect the Line out connector on the rear of the system to amplifier and loudspeakers.

Connecting the audio injector

If you are not using loudspeakers and an amplifier, connect the audio injector to send audio to the loudspeakers integrated in the display. Otherwise, audio will not be available in the room during meetings.

  1. Connect the Line Out on the system to L/R In on the audio injector.
  2. Connect the Video Out on the system to HDMI Input on the audio injector.
  3. Connect the HDMI Output on the audio injector to your display.

  5. On the audio injector, set the EDID switches to zero, and set Mode switch 0 to 1:

Connecting Pronto

If it has been included with your system, you can use Pronto to share content and audio from devices (such as laptops) during meetings. Connect Pronto to the USB connector on the Teamline system using the USB-A cable, and ensure the other end of the cable is accessible to users to plug into their laptops.

The first time users plug Pronto in, instructions are shown on the room display:

When the Pronto app is launched, the presentation source screen is shared to the room on the display and active meetings are displayed as a Join now tile on the Touch and on the room display. Future meetings in the user’s Outlook calendar that start within the next 15 minutes are displayed on the Touch and are visible on the room display. On subsequent connections using Pronto, the app does not need to be launched and content and meetings are shared immediately with the room.

Mounting Pronto

The supplied bracket can be used to mount Pronto to a surface using screws, ties (such as cable ties or Velcro), or adhesive mounting pads. Remove Pronto from the bracket to access the screw holes and slots for ties:

Connecting presentation sources

Presentation sources can be connected to Computer In 1 and/or Computer In 2 on the rear of the Teamline system to display content locally on room displays and to share content during meetings. It is recommended that you leave a cable within easy access on the meeting room table for this purpose. A selection of adapters are supplied that can be used with the DVI-I to DVI-I cable if the video output on the presentation source is not DVI-I (for example, VGA, HDMI, DVI-D.)

To send audio from a presentation source, connect the audio out on the device to the audio Line In on the system. Otherwise, participants will not receive audio from the device.

Extending cables

For information about supported cable extenders and cable information, see Cable recommendations for room systems.

Connecting power

Using the supplied power cable, connect the IEC mains power connector on the rear of the system to the mains power.
