Video Conference — How To Video Conference Home Meetings

  1. Plug the internet cable into the internet input jack on the back of the phone.
  2. Plug the other end into an ethernet port on a router or internet modem.
  3. Plug in the power cable to the back of the phone and the other end to a standard 110-volt wall receptacle.
  4. The phone will search to find its IP address. Following this, the phone will register or “authenticate” itself. This process takes about 5 minutes.
  • Connect the video phone to a TV with a 3-prong cable (2 audio and 1 video). For example, the video phone has 3 jacks for this purpose, as do all recent TVs.
  • Using the “menu” and the keypad, instruct the video phone to “use external video display” (very simple on-screen instructions)
  • Select the appropriate “input” instruction on your TV screen (using your hand held remote control)
  • Like a traditional cordless handset, the video phone has a button which puts your party on “hold”. 3way video conferencing is no different than doing a 3way call on a traditional phone.
  • Call your first party, press the conference / hold button and put them on hold. Call the second party and press the conference button again, all three parties are shown on the screen.
