5.1.1 VLT Mode (Source) - Tile Setup (Layout Setup) Background:
The term layouts can be used to describe the various ways a video image appears on a screen. Different types of meetings will require different layouts. A layout is a composition of one or more frames. The codec
supports a maximum of four simultaneous participants in a video conference.
The Tile Setup Page is a visual editor that lets you customize different parts of the Cisco Telepresence System Codec C90 by the use of simple source selection and assignment.
The first thing you should do is to consider which layouts you are going to need. A good way of doing this is to ask yourself which layouts will best fit the meeting setup and how many monitors are required.
1. Select AV source on the left column and then select the required VC Source to apply the Source to.
=> Source selection available on Lectern sources (Resident Computer, Blu-ray/DVD/CD, Document Camera and Plug-in source for Display Port, HDMI, VGA, and Composite Video)
=> Two available VC sources.
2. Select VC source and then select the frame in the layout that you wish to apply this source to.
=> VC Call sources are available during VC Call.
=> Select “No Input” to clear the frame of layout.

Appendix I: Software Installation
A. Crestron Software
[When installing the Crestron software development system, it is important to install programs in the correct order as there are some interdependencies.]
1. Device Database
=> The Device Database represents data for the general programming applications. The general programming applications are used by advanced programming applications
2. Crestron Database
=> The Crestron Database represents data for the advanced programming applications. The data consists of module files, mdb control files, and other necessary files needed in support of these applications.
Crestron Toolbox is a broad-based mechanism that performs numerous system tasks, such as logging system data and error messages, setting network IDs, uploading programs and device firmware, transmitting device status information, changing system communication parameters, and detecting network devices and control cards. The Crestron Toolbox fully replaces the Crestron Viewport and provides an extended range of diagnostic and communications tools. The Toolbox is an easy-to-use, graphically based program that uses a drag and drop interface, and provides real-time feedback. With built-in diagnostic tools, such as Network Analyzer, Video Test Patterns, and infiNET™ Diagnostics, coupled with network and SIMPL Windows program views, Toolbox simplifies system setup and troubleshooting, saving a considerable amount of time and effort.
4. VT Pro-e
VisionTools Pro-e (VTPro-e) is comprehensive Crestron touchscreen design software.
5. SIMPL Windows
Crestron SIMPL Windows is the premier development environment for building powerful and flexible Crestron control system applications.
6. SIMPL+ Cross Compiler
=> SIMPL+ takes Crestron programming a step beyond SIMPL. Completely integrated into SIMPL Windows, SIMPL+ is a powerful language extension to Crestron's popular SIMPL programming language. Users can now combine the ease-of-use and simplicity of the graphical SIMPL language with the power and flexibility of SIMPL+.
B. Biamp Nexia Software
NEXIA software includes a broad selection of audio components, routing options, and signal processing. The internal system design is completely user definable via PC software, and can be controlled via dedicated software screens, RS-232 control systems, and/or a variety of optional remote control devices.
