Using the info bar

Using the info bar

An info bar with information and buttons will appear when you are in a call. The information is:

  • The duration of the conference.
  • The address of the recipient of the call; either one person or the device hosting the conference.
  • An icon indicating whether the conference is encrypted or not.

The buttons are:

Icon Controls Description
Far-end camera control Turn Control far-end camera off/on.
Numeric keypad Use for tone-based input. (See How to use keypad)
Conference info Open the Accessing conference information box.

Control far-end camera

In calls that support far-end camera control (FECC), you can adjust the far-end camera to give you a better view. This feature will be available to you if supported by the system you are calling, and enabled for you by your video conference administrator.

To activate far end camera control:

    Step 1   Move the mouse inside the video window.
    Step 2   Click the FECC button in the upper right corner. It may take a few seconds for the button to become enabled after the conference has started. The below control will now appear inside the video window when the mouse is moved.

    Step 3   Click inside the circle or use the keyboard to control the far-end camera:
    • The arrow buttons and the arrow keys pan and tilt the camera.
    • The + and - buttons and keys make the camera zoom in and out.

    The keys and controls described above can also be used to change the conference layout during multipart conferences, depending on the multipart conference hardware deployed in your organization.

    Using the keypad (DTMF)

    When to use the keypad

    Dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) signaling sends a tone sent representing each number or sign pressed on the keypad.

    The tone-based keypad in Jabber Video has several uses, notably:

    • The keypad can be used to create and/or enter passwords for multi-part conferences.
    • Setting up a new conference may in other ways involve equipment that requires DTMF.
    • Voice systems frequently have tone-based menu navigation (such as, "To speak to an operator, please press 1").

    How to use keypad

    on the video info bar brings up the keypad. You can then enter a number, # or * using the mouse or keyboard.


    Sending DTMF may fail if the microphone is muted.

    Using the keypad during conferences

    The keypad may also be used for changing the layout of your video window and far-end camera control during conferences.


    This feature relies on the Cisco TelePresence MCU, which may or may not be part of your Cisco setup. If in doubt, talk to your video conference administrator.

    When the keypad is active during multi-part conferences, you may use the on-screen keypad itself or your keyboard.

    • Press 2 or 8 to change the layout.
    • Press 4 or 6 to change which participant appears in the largest pane.
    • Press 1 or 7 to enable DTMF-based far end camera control.
      • 1 and 7 will then zoom in and out if supported.
      • 2, 4, 6, and 8 will work as arrows to tilt or pan the camera of the participant in the largest pane.

    Accessing conference information

    Move the cursor over the video window to display the information bar at the top of the window.

    The Conference information button in the top right corner opens an overview of Jabber Video's incoming and outgoing data traffic. Your administrator may request this information from you for the purposes of Troubleshooting.
