1. On all Phonebook entries, including the F1 speed dials on the main screen, a picture can be added to help identify the number. To use a screen captured image of the location, you MUST have a memory stick inserted in the front slot. Once you are connected to that location through a video call, hit the tools button and then select “screen capture”. Whichever image is on the main screen (from the far site) will be placed captured onto the memory stick. Once the call is disconnected, select that location in the phone book (or the F1 speed dial location) and select “Edit”. Select the image in the upper right hand corner and toggle to the right until you see the image you took. Then select “Save”. That image will be placed on that location’s entry EVEN IF YOU REMOVE THE STICK.
2. Images can also be recorded to distinguish the locations of the preset sites of the camera (such as close up, wide angle, white board in the background, etc.) -- these DO NOT require a memory stick to be inserted. Simply select the camera menu from the main menu, toggle to “presets”, select the preset you are working on, and then select “edit”. If necessary, select “adjustments” to set a different camera angle. Once you are satisfied with the angle and image the camera is giving you, before saving it, select the box that says: “Register in thumbnail list” Now, whenever you choose camera, and presets, you will see that image on the preset number.
3. The home menu is completely customizable. Go to “Tools”, then “Setup”, then hit F4 to expand the menu and page down to Home Menus 1, 2 and 3. You can make the main screen as busy and complicated, (turning on every indicator) or as simple as you like. You can have direct dial, tools menu, everything up on the main screen if you choose. IN ADDITION, the translucency of the menu can be adjusted by in the 72 command, the options are 1%-99%, with 86% as the default. If you want the menus to be more or less translucent to see varying degrees of the image behind them, this can be adjusted. Just let me know and I can pass on the commands (888-807-7473).
4. There are shortcuts available from the remote control. I.e, you wouldn’t have to go into the menu to perform certain functions. For example, during a call, if you press the green connect button twice, it will bring up the Speed-dial (F) buttons. Attached is a list of shortcuts for the XG80.5. Prior to a call, if you want to see the camera image full screen, just press the Layout
