Base Buttons

Basics

 

When you press on a base button, you are opening a phone line/audio channel. Depending on

 

the circumstances, you won’t necessarily hear a dial tone until you’ve dialed from your phone.

 

The base buttons allow you to switch to a different phone line/audio channel.

 

Change your default outbound line

 

This feature sets the preferred outbound line when the headset call control button is pushed

 

while all lines are idle.

 

With the system idle, you can change your default outbound line by pressing the desired

 

outbound base button until it flashes green four times.

 

You can also change the default outbound line using the Plantronics Control Panel by going to

 

Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings > Base.

Base Subscription Button

The headset and base that came in the box are subscribed (connected) to each other. However,

 

if you wish to use a new headset or need to restore subscription to your current headset (base

 

subscription button is red), the units can be subscribed to each other by the following

 

methods.

 

The subscription button is the silver trim with four dots on the front of the base.

Automatic secure subscription

With your system idle, docking a new headset will automatically subscribe it to the base, making it the primary headset. The base subscription LED will blink green/red during subscription mode and remain green when the new subscription is established.

Manual secure subscription

With your system idle and your headset docked, double press the subscription button on the base. The subscription light will flash red and green. When the subscription light on the base becomes solid green, the headset and base are subscribed to one another.

Manual over-the-air subscription

1With your system idle and your headset undocked, double press the subscription button on the base. The subscription light will flash green and red.

2Press the volume up button on the headset for three seconds until the headset LED turns solid white. When the subscription light on the base remains solid green, the headset and base are subscribed to one another.

NOTE If the base subscription LED goes solid red, after flashing red/green, the subscription attempt has failed and should be repeated.

18

End Subscription

If the base is in subscription mode and you want to stop the base from searching for a headset, press the subscription button again. The subscription light will be solid red for four seconds and then go to its previous state.

Disabling Over-the-Air Subscription

The Savi system ships with the over-the-air subscription enabled. In a multi-shift environment, you may want to disable this mode of subscription. You can enable/disable over-the-air subscription with the base subscription button or with the Plantronics Control Panel.

While your system is idle, hold the subscription button and the PC phone button down simultaneously until the PC phone button LED flashes. It will flash red for 4 seconds when over- the-air subscription has been disabled or green for 4 seconds when enabled.

You can also enable/disable over-the-air subscription with the Plantronics Control Panel. Go to

Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings > Base > Over-the-

at any given time on the mobile phone or desk phone. You will need to manage multiple calls on

 

the desk phone or mobile phone on the devices themselves.

 

Answer a Call While Listening to Music or Audio

 

If you are listening to music on a supported media player and a call comes in, the base will

 

pause the music when you answer your call and resume the music when your call is over.

 

Plantronics software must be installed for this feature to function.

 

The Action to Media Player settings are defined in the preference tab of the Plantronics Control

 

Panel.

 

Answer a Call with Your Mobile Phone

 

If you answer an incoming mobile call using the answer button on the mobile phone, the audio

 

will remain in the phone. If you answer an incoming call using the headset or base, the audio

 

will be in the headset.

Mobile Phone and

Headset Audio

Combine Audio From Any

Two Lines or Channels

Conference Up to Three Additional Headsets

If you answer an incoming mobile call using the answer button on the mobile phone, the audio will remain in the phone. If you answer an incoming call using the headset or base, the audio will be in the headset.

If the mobile phone audio is in the mobile phone, you can move the audio to the headset by short pressing the base mobile button when the LED is off. To move the mobile phone audio from the headset back to the mobile phone, hold the base mobile button for 3 seconds until the solid green LED turns off. The audio will be pushed back to the mobile phone.

You can combine the audio of any two devices by simultaneously holding the base buttons of any two of the three base buttons until the LEDs become solid green.

This is useful as a mini-teleconference call.

While on a call you can subscribe up to three additional headsets to your base for conferencing.

Join a conference call

1While the base has an active link, place the guest headset into primary user’s charge cradle (this connects the headset to the base).

When the base subscription light stops flashing green and yellow and remains yellow, the primary headset/user will hear a tone indicating a guest wishes to join the call.

2Press the primary user’s call button to accept the guest headset within ten seconds. Otherwise the request is terminated and the guest will hear an error tone in their headset.

NOTE To connect a guest headset that is of different variety than the primary headset, short press the base subscription button while the base has an active link. Next, press the guest headset volume up button until the indicator light turns on. When the base subscription LED stops flashing green and yellow and remains solid yellow, the request to join will be heard in the primary user’s headset and the primary user will have to press their call button within 10 seconds to accept the guest .

Exit a conference call

Guests headsets can remain as guests through multiple calls.

To remove a guest headset, press the guest headset’s call button or dock the primary user’s headset in the charge cradle.

A single tone in the master headset will be heard as each guest leaves the call.

View guest headsets

As you add headsets to the base, an additional headset icon will appear in the Plantronics Control Panel screen with a number from 1 to 3 indicating the number of additional headset

23

subscribed to the base. The first headset is the primary user’s headset and the number inside the next headset is the number of guest headsets subscribed to the base. The following example shows one primary headset with 2 guest headsets conferenced in.

Audio Bandwidth for Desk phone and PC

Wideband audio delivers heightened speech clarity and life-like fidelity. However, wideband audio consumes more battery power and has more stringent access criteria which reduces the number of systems that can be deployed in a small area. All PCs support wideband audio but your desk phone must support wideband audio to experience the benefit of selecting “wideband” for that device. When switching between narrowband and wideband audio, you must re-establish the audio link for the changes to take effect.

Bluetooth Enabled

This feature disables/enables use of the Bluetooth interface to the mobile phone.

The Bluetooth interface to the mobile phone can also be disabled/enabled manually by pressing the subscription and base mobile phone button until the base mobile phone LED flashes. When the base mobile phone button LED flashes red four times, Bluetooth is disabled and when it flashes green four times, it is enabled.

Ring Both Headset and PC

This feature gives you the option to have the PC ringtone played on both the headset as well as the PC speaker.

When this feature is selected, the PC ringtone will be heard on both the PC speaker as well as the headset.

When this feature is not selected, the PC ringtone will only be heard on either the headset or the PC speaker based on how the PC audio has been set up.

Maintain Headset to PC Link

This feature forces the radio link to the PC to stay active even after the call has ended. This can eliminate the need to re-establish the radio link when switching between PC audio applications.

Help Us Improve This Software By Allowing Us To Collect Anonymous Feature Usage Statistics

When selected, this will allow Plantronics to collect data on feature usage pattern. This information will only be used by Plantronics to improve the quality of our future software and hardware products.

Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync Dial-tone Enabled

If this feature is selected, when a PC radio link is established, Microsoft Office Communicator/

Lync will assume the user is trying to place a VoIP call and provide a dial tone.

If this feature is not selected, when a PC radio link is established, Microsoft Office

Communicator/Lync will sit idle.

Audio Sensing Enabled

Audio Sensing is a special feature supported by Plantronics wireless devices that can detect an audio signal at the USB port and automatically establish a PC radio link between the Base and wireless headset without the user having to press the PC call button. If the parameter “Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync Dial-tone Enabled” is selected, then every time a PC radio link is established the Microsoft Office Communicator/Lync dial tone will be heard.

However, the user may have pressed the PC call button to listen to music, etc., and does not want to hear the dial-tone. In this case, if the user selects the “Audio Sensing Enabled” parameter, the radio link will be established automatically when any PC audio is detected at the USB port, thus eliminating the need for the user to press the PC call button.
