End-point device hints
- On Polycom (HDX) devices, use the pound sign to bring up the dialpad, so you can then enter the conference number
- If your H.323 endpoint is unwilling to connect to the IP address (or to vidyogw.cern.ch) and returns "unknown number" or a similar message, try to remove any "gatekeeper" configuration from the system settings menu (look for "gatekeeper", or E.164 settings)
- There are many H.323 clients that use your own laptop as an end-point:
cross-platform open source clients like Ekiga,
and Windows clients like Polycom RealPresence Desktop, or Polycom PVX.
- Quality really depends on your connected audio and video
equipment. Use hardware echo cancellation: e.g. a Duet USB speakerphone,
or a Logitech BCC950. Small investment, big improvement!
