Cisco VXME and Device Management

Device Selector

Cisco Virtualization Experience Media Edition (VXME) includes a component called Device Selector. Device Selector is a menu that you can use to manage your cameras, speaker devices, microphones, and ring alerts. You can view your currently active devices or change them. A list of speaker devices appears first in the menu, followed by the lists of microphones, ring devices, and cameras.

The Device Selector icon () appears in the notification area (system tray), in the bottom right corner of the screen. Some icons, including the Device Selector, can be hidden. Click the up arrow in the notification area to show hidden icons.

After you connect a new device, a "New device found" message appears in the notification area and the new device becomes active.

When you disconnect a device, a "Device disconnected message" appears in the notification area. The next device in your Preference list (File > Options > Audio > Advanced) becomes active.

Use Device Selector

Use the Device Selector menu to view your active device selections, or to select a different active camera, speaker device, microphone, or ring alert. You must have multiple devices connected.

    1 In the Windows notification area, click the Device Selector icon.

    Check marks indicate the selected devices.

    2 Click a device (camera or audio) to make it active.
    3 Click anywhere except on the Device Selector icon to close the menu.

    Adjust Settings for Jabra Bluetooth Devices

    Most Jabra Bluetooth devices introduce a short delay in bringing up the audio path (about 1 to 3 seconds). For supported Jabra Bluetooth devices, you can eliminate the delay by changing the device settings in Jabra Direct. For more information, visit http:/​/​

    Before You Begin

    Jabra Direct must be installed.

      1Open Jabra Direct.
      2 Click the Jabra device for which you want to modify the settings.
      3Click Settings.
      4 Click to expand Softphone (PC).
      5 From the Preferred softphone list, select Cisco Jabber.
      6Set Open phone line to On.
      7Set PC audio to Off.
      8Click Apply.

      Headsets and Ringtones

      With some wireless headsets, you may not hear the ringtone for incoming calls, because the wireless link that connects the device is not open. To open the wireless link, press the call answer button on the headset.


      Some headsets play their own internal tone.

      Switching Cameras

      Cisco VXME establishes the video quality at the start of a call. If you start a call with a supported high definition (HD) camera, and then switch to a standard-definition camera, video quality is affected. We recommend that you switch cameras between calls.
