Like the panel states, you can select a source from the top row, then select a display below. You can also decide if you want that selected source to share audio as well. If so, select the Room Audio button.

Adjusting the Microphone Volume

Selecting the Mic Volume button will bring up the volume sliders for any mics that are in the room. Below is an example of a room with one microphone, but there may be 4, or even up to 8.

Touch panel microphone controls

Each microphone will have its own In-Room and To Call volume sliders.
The In-Room volume is the volume of the mic over the speakers in the classroom. This only controls what you hear in the physical room space.
The To Call volume is the volume of the mic over a connected call, such as Zoom or Teams. Adjusting this will affect how loud you are to any participants in your online meeting.

Controlling the Camera

Selecting the Camera button will bring up the camera controls window. If the room has multiple cameras, you will be able to select which camera to adjust at a given time.

Touch panel camera controls

The 4 directional buttons control the panning and tilting of the camera. The magnifying glasses control the zoom in/out functions of the camera.
Under Presets you can select a preset, 1 through 4, to set the camera at a pre-determined spot. To set a preset to access later, press and hold on of the numbers.
The privacy preset will turn off the video feed of the camera.

Turning Off the System
