Assembling the Table-Mounted CTS-500-32

To assemble the table-mounted version of the CTS-500-32, complete the following steps.


Step 1 Determine if the codec bracket is positioned correctly by completing the following steps:

a. Sit where the user will sit when using the system for a conference.

b. Determine the eye height of the user.

c. Align the slot at the top center of the codec bracket with the eye height of the user.

This slot is visible in Figure 3-1 and has an upwards-pointing arrow, stamped on the bracket, directly below it.

d. If the slot is already aligned with the user eye height, proceed to Step 5; otherwise, remove the codec bracket as shown in Figure 3-1, reposition it on the column until the slot in the bracket aligns with the eye height of the user, and reattach it.

Step 2 Remove the clips from the lower part of the display carton; then, remove the top cover from the display packaging.

Figure 3-2 Unpacking the Display

Step 3 Remove the protective film from around the display, then remove the rear display cover.

Step 4 Mount the display by performing the following steps:

a. Loosen the stand lock screw.

Figure 3-4 Loosening the Stand Lock Screw

b. Open the stand lock by lifting the tab up. The loosened stand lock screw should move to the top of the slot.

Figure 3-5 Opening the Stand Lock

c. Tighten the stand lock screw to hold the stand lock in the open position.

d. Using at least two people, remove the display from its packaging; then, place it on the display mount.


Caution Make sure that the mounting buttons on the display are firmly attached to the keyhole slots in the mount.

e. Loosen the stand lock screw and close the stand lock, moving the stand lock screw back to the bottom of the slot. Secure the stand lock closed by tightening the stand lock screw.

f. Install the second stand lock screw, which is included in a bag with the stand.


Note Do not release the cable ties bundling the display cables together. We recommend you wait until after the power supply and codec are installed before releasing the cable ties.

Step 5 Place the power supply into the CTS-500-32 assembly.

Step 6 Install the codec into the codec bracket by performing the following steps:

a. Insert the codec into the bottom of the codec bracket.

b. Rock the codec forward until the top rests fully against the stand.

c. Attach the codec to the bracket, using one screw on each side (two screws total).

Step 7 Release the cable ties bundling the cables above the codec.

Figure 3-11 Releasing the Cable Ties

Step 8 Connect the cables to the codec using the diagram in Figure 3-12.


Tip Use the tape flags on the cables, and match the logo or text on the flag with the logo or text on the codec and display.



Note To use a Cisco Digital Media Player (DMP) with your CTS 500-32 system, swap the codec connection labeled as "DVI" in Figure 3-12 with the codec connection labeled "Aux 1". This connection is directly below the DVI connection as shown in Figure 3-12. You then connect the DMP to the HDMI "Aux" connection on the table stand base. For more information about using a DMP with your CTS 500-32 system, see the "Options for the Cisco TelePresence System 500 32" section of the Cisco TelePresence Hardware Options and Upgrade Guide.

Step 9 Place the codec cover on the rear of the system by inserting the plastic tabs on the bottom of the cover into the slots at the base of the display, then rocking the top of the cover forward to attach to the display.

Warning Always use two people to move the system, supporting both the base and the display, as shown in Figure 3-14.
