NOTE: - Poor audio and video quality might result from insufficient bandwidth on your network. Follow the recommendations from Lifesize, who recommend that your network be capable of at least 1 Mb/s (incoming and outgoing) for a high definition video call.
NOTE: The Nureva Aux In / Out connections are single-ended, unbalanced signals with default maximum output signals as given in the table below. Any equipment requiring voltages below these levels may result in clipping, distortion and, in extreme cases, damage to connected systems. Equipment requiring voltages above these levels will not be adequately driven by the HDL300 system’s output signal and may result in quiet / no audio on the channel. Before connecting to the Nureva Connect Module, make sure the third-party device voltage levels are adequate or adjusted properly by additional interfacing hardware.
