IMPORTANT SAFETY

INSTRUCTIONS

When using your telephone equipment, the following safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons.

1.Read and understand all instructions.

2.Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the instrument.

3.SoundPoint® Pro will not operate during a period of power loss. For placing emergency calls during periods of power loss, be sure to have at least one telephone that operates with telephone line-level power in your home or office.

4.Unplug SoundPoint Pro from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use only a damp cloth for cleaning.

5.This instrument can be hazardous if immersed in water. To avoid the possibility of electrical shock, do not use the telephone while you are in the bathtub or shower, or when you are wet. If you accidentally drop the telephone into water, do not retrieve it until you have first unplugged the line cord from the modular wall jack. Do not reconnect the telephone until it has dried thoroughly.

6.Avoid using the telephone during electrical storms in your immediate area. There is a remote risk of electric shock from lightning. Urgent calls should be brief. Even though protective measures may have been installed to limit electrical surges from entering your home or business, absolute protection from lightning is impossible.

7.If you suspect a natural gas leak, report it immediately, but use a telephone away from the area in question. The telephone’s electrical contacts could generate a tiny spark. While unlikely, it is possible that this spark could ignite heavy concentrations of gas.

8.Never push objects of any kind into the telephone through housing slots as they may touch hazardous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a risk of electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the telephone. If liquid is spilled, however, refer servicing to proper service personnel.

9.To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this telephone. Opening or removing covers may expose you to hazardous voltages. Incorrect reassembly can cause electric shock when the telephone is subsequently used. If your telephone does not work properly, refer to the section describing how to get service for your telephone.

10.Always use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines. Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm. Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.

11.Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected from the network interface.

12.Do not place on an unstable surface (e.g., cart stand, or table); a fall may damage the unit.

13.Unplug and refer to an authorized service representative under the following conditions:

When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.

If the unit has been dropped or damaged.

If the unit exhibits a distinct change in performance.

SoundPoint Pro Professional Conference Phone User’s Guide

ii

14.Operate using only the power source indicated on the console label.

15.Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not place the unit where the cord might be abused by pets, children, or foot traffic.

16.Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords.

Preparing for Installation

Preparing to install your phone includes deciding where you want to install the phone, locating the power outlet closest to your phone, locating your existing telephone wall jack(s) in your home or office, and determining how your telephone lines are configured with your telephone jacks.

The SoundPoint Pro Line Interface Module (LIM) allows you to connect two telephone lines and power to SoundPoint Pro, with only one cable extending to the console for maximum portability.

SoundPoint Pro Professional Conference Phone Introduction and Installation

Line Interface Module (LIM)

The Line Interface Module (LIM) provides the convenience of a single cable to your two-line phone, reducing clutter and improving mobility for conferencing. However, if your two lines share the same telephone jack, the phone line and power can be connected directly to the console. See your options in the following section, “Installing the Phone”.

Installing the Phone

Setup 1

See the Quick Guide for detailed installation instructions or follow these steps.

1.Plug one end of either 7’Phone Cord into line port L1 of the LIM and the other end into the wall jack for Line 1.

2.Repeat step 1 for Line 2 using the other 7’Phone Cord.

3.Connect the double-ended console cable from the LIM to the TEL and DC POWER ports on the console.

4.Connect the Power Adapter cord to the LIM and plug the Power Adapter into the electrical outlet.

Setup 2

If two phone lines share one telephone wall jack, install as in Setup 1 but be sure to connect the black 7’Phone Cord provided. Continue with Setup 1, steps 3 and 4.

Setup 3

If two phone lines share one telephone wall jack, the phone can be installed without using the LIM. Connect the black 7’Phone Cord into the TELport on the Console and the Power Adapter to DC POWER.

More on Making Calls

Selecting a Line

Pressing the LINE key under the LCD screen will activate that line for the mode you are currently using: handset, speaker, or headset. If no mode is selected, pressing a LINE key will cause that line to go active in Speaker Mode by default.

SoundPoint Pro Professional Conference Phone Operation

The green LED on the LINE key indicates that it is in use.

IMPORTANT: As a rule, once a line is activated it must be placed on Hold prior to activating another line key or the line will be disconnected.

Using Redial and Repetitive Redial

Press the REDIAL key to automatically dial the last phone number dialed on your phone. The Repetitive Redial feature allows you to Redial a phone number up to 15 times, which is useful when attempting to dial a number that is busy. To activate Repetitive Redial, press and hold the REDIAL key for 2 seconds. By default SoundPoint Pro will dial the last number dialed 10 times with 20 seconds between attempts, or until the call is answered, whichever comes first. When the call is answered, SoundPoint Pro will ring indicating that the call has been connected.

Repetitive Redial can be programmed for the number of attempts tried, and the duration between attempts. For instructions, see page 2 – 22, “Setting Repetitive Redial Parameters”.

More on Answering Calls

SoundPoint Pro will automatically select the ringing line when you answer. It is not necessary to select the ringing line first.

When More Than One Incoming Line is Ringing

If both lines are ringing at the same time, the line that is engaged first will ring and its red LED will blink. The second line’s LED will also blink, but no audible ring will be heard.

When the phone is answered, preference will be given to the primary line (see “Setting Primary Line for Your Phone” on page 2-19). If no primary line has been programmed, Line 1 will be selected first.

Second Calls on an Inactive Line

If you have already engaged a call and another call comes in on the line you are not using, you will be prompted with a low-volume ring and the LED indicator for the incoming line will blink. If you subscribe to Caller ID, SoundPoint Pro will display Caller ID information for the incoming call. To answer the call:

Place your call on hold with the HOLD key, then press the LINE key with the red blinking LED (the ringing line) and begin speaking.

HEADSETS

About Headsets

If you use the phone frequently or for extended periods of time, headsets can make your life much easier. Headsets, like speakerphones or conference phones, allow you to use your hands while talking on the telephone.

One advantage headsets have over speakerphones and conference phones is the added dimensions of privacy and decreased office noise. Headsets, like handsets, allow only half of a conversation to be overheard. This maintains a level of semi-privacy, while reducing the amount of noise heard in and around the office.

Headsets can be challenging, however, for a person who needs to get up from his or her desk frequently. Replacing the headset plug into the headset jack or putting the headset back on and adjusting it, can be more cumbersome than picking up the handset, or going off-hook on the conference phone.

Most people, however, find headsets to be a valuable communications tool. When using a headset in addition to a handset and conference phone, the headset can become an indispensable part of a multi-functional approach to business communications.

Some business and SOHO (small office/home office) telephones like SoundPoint Pro are “headset-ready”, meaning they have a connector (2.5mm phone jack, or a non-standard connector for use only with the phone maker’s headset) and a separate button to go offhook without lifting the receiver.

Many headsets require an adapter/amplifier to work with a business telephone. Most of these headsets require plugging the amplifier into the handset jack, then plugging the handset into a receptacle on the side of the amplifier. This arrangement can be a nuisance, especially since you must always take the handset off-hook to use the headset.

To compound these problems, some headsets require that you select DIPswitch settings to get the sound right, and then adjust a separate volume control on the amplifier.

SoundPoint Pro has an integrated headset amplifier and complete compatibility with all telephone functionality. SoundPoint Pro comes standard with a headset hanger.

There are many different options and styles of headsets to choose from. Following is an overview of what to look for in a headset.

SoundPoint Pro Professional Conference Phone Appendix

A–2

Headset Types

There are three basic types of headsets:

Binaural headsets are held on by a “headband” and have earpieces that provide sound to—and cover—both ears. This helps to block out background noise better than the other types.

Monaural headsets are also held in place by a headband but cover just one ear. The single earpiece can sit in the ear—actually fitting into the ear canal with a microphone attached—or cover the ear using a foam or “leatherette” cushion.

In-the-earheadsets fit in, or over the ear, or grasp the ear itself to stay in place. These headsets are popular with people who like to avoid the adverse effects of the other types of headsets on hairstyles, etc.

Headset Selection

If you are interested in purchasing a headset, you should decide which type is best for you, and also take into consideration:

Sound Quality

Some headset manufacturers use noise reduction technology to enhance sound quality. Like high-quality conferencing equipment, good sound quality in a headset can improve productivity and make daily business communications more enjoyable.

Comfort/Wearability

Headsets are traditionally worn by people who spend a great deal of time on the phone, so choosing one that’s comfortable—and stays that way—makes a big difference. Make sure that the headset you chose is comfortable to wear, and maintains its shape when it’s not on your head.

SoundPoint Pro Professional Conference Phone Appendix

A–3

Durability

Make sure you choose a headset durable enough to withstand a fair amount of wear and tear.

Headsets should stand up to twisting and stretching, and in home offices, to family use.

Cleanability

Headsets with removable microphone covers, ear cushions, and voice tubes allow for easy cleaning or, if necessary, replacement. If you foresee using a headset extensively , look for one that is easy to keep clean.

Warranty

If your headset breaks, you will want to get it replaced. Look for a headset with a good warranty as it often reflects the manufacturer’s confidence in the durability of the product.
