New features in Maestro v1.2.

Greater control for GTm standby

Camera standby is now separate from screen standby such that you can locally share content from a PC or other source without causing the camera to come out of standby. Additionally, Maestro On-Premises provides the following controls:

  • TV Standby Timeout: This timeout controls if and when the GTm will stop sending video to the screens. The timeout can either be 5 minutes or Disabled:
    • 5 minutes: If the GTm is not in a call, and there is no content source connected, and nobody has touched the touch panel, after 5 minutes have elapsed, the GTm will not send any video (including the standby screen) to the screens
    • Disabled: The GTm will send the standby screen to the GTm screens
  • AV Standby Timeout: This timeout controls if and when the GTm will cause the camera to move into privacy position and mute the microphone. This can be set to either 1 minute or disabled:
    • 1 minute: If the GTm is not in a call the camera will move into privacy position and the microphone will mute after 1 minute has elapsed
    • Disabled: The camera will never go into privacy position and the microphone will not mute unless someone mutes it

WiFi settings

Maestro now has an additional tab for the control of WiFi settings:

This allows you to enable or disable WiFi on a GTm, choose a WiFi channel, and allocate a Miracast name (the name that appears in the list of content receivers).

Improvements to certificate management

  • Meeting room > Certificates now shows both the certificate name and file name
  • You can no longer upload duplicate certificates. If you attempt to do so, you will see an error message

Disable VbSS

You can now disable Video-based Screen Sharing (VbSS) through Maestro. Disabling VbSS will cause the GTm to use RDP for sharing content. To disable VbSS, in Maestro go to Meeting Rooms and select a room to manage. Choose Skype > Advanced settings > Disable video-based screen sharing.

Unlock password

Maestro provides an ‘unlock password’ that unlocks the web user interface for a GTm. Maestro v1.2 introduces an automatically generated and secure ‘unlock password’ every time a GTm is paired with Maestro:

Issues resolved
