Chapter 6: Multipoint Connection This chapter describes how to connect your system to multiple points. For multipoint connection, installation of the optional PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software is required. When connecting via a LAN, multipoint connection among up to 10 points including your site is available.
Connection Examples of a Multipoint Connection Using the LAN Connection (Up to Six Points) Installing the optional PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software in an HD Visual Communication System allows you to connect multiple points up to six. If you have already made a point-to-point connection when a third point calls, the system automatically starts multipoint connection.
Using the Cascade Connection via LAN (Up to 10 Points) Installing the optional PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software in two HD Visual Communication Systems enables cascade connection with two main terminals, allowing you to make a multipoint connection among up to ten points by connecting four to each main terminal.
Using the ISDN Connection Installing the optional PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software in an HD Visual Communication System allows you to connect to multiple systems up to six by using the optional PCSA-B768S, or up to four by using the optional PCSA- B384S ISDN Unit.
Note When you are called from a remote party and the remote party has set up a lower number of ISDN channels than that in your terminal, the setting on the remote party’s terminal has priority. To connect with a normal phone When you are using an ISDN connection, a normal phone can be connected at up to five points.
Note The connection example described above includes four terminals via a LAN connection and one terminal via an ISDN connection. The number of the systems for LAN and those for ISDN connections is not fixed. Using the LAN Cascade and ISDN Connection Installing the PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software in two HD Visual Communication System enables cascade connection including two main terminals.
