Settings in the setup:
Sound event output device: Specifies which audio device is used for the ringtone.It is recommended that you select the audio device that is connected to the thin client's built-in loudspeaker.
- Audio output device: Specifies which audio device is used for playback. Example: the audio device that is connected to the loudspeakers of the headset.
- Audio input device: Specifies which audio device is used for recording. Example: the audio device that is connected to the microphone of the headset.
Enable silence detection: If this option is enabled, audio transmission will be suppressed in the absence of voice activity. This helps to save bandwidth.Voice activity detection can reduce the voice quality.
- Enable echo cancelation: If this option is enabled, the VoIP client will suppress echoes of your own voice.
Maximum jitter buffer (in milliseconds): The jitter buffer improves voice quality by compensating for delay variations when transmitting voice packets. The VoIP client continuously measures delay variations and automatically adjusts the buffer size. The bigger the delay variations are, the bigger the jitter buffer will be set. (Default: 500)A bigger jitter buffer results in greater latency.
