Question: We’re considering purchasing some 6940 ip Phones, my boss currently has a 5360.
We have a MiVoice Business up to latest version on premise Virtualized, MiCollab, Nupoint, MiCollab Client installed.
1. Is it possible to change the default screensaver image on the 5360 phones we have now, and how to go about that?
2. Is it possible on the new 6940 models and if so, is it easier to do and how?
Screensavers for 53xx series handsets are created using a software packager (HTML toolkit) and then uploaded to the pabx using ftp
Once they are there they can be manually assigned per device.
This means that different screensavers can be applied to different users.
Screensavers for 69xx series are created using PNG files ( other picture types are also supported) they are combined into a single zip file and then uploaded to the pabx
Once uploaded all 69xx series phones get the screensaver
– there are different files for 6920 , 6930 6940
so if a new 6940 screensaver file is uploaded , all 6940s get that version
Thanks also for that tip, Chris, especially re the 5360’s. I’m sure my employer would be keen on being able to replace the default screen saver image with the company logo, for example, but they might find having to pay for 1 x HTML Applications licence per phone in order to achieve this to be prohibitive. Always good to be able share the art of the possible with them though. Cheers, Neil.
From Early version 6 or 7 MiVB ( I cant remember exactly when it changed) , no HTML app licenses are required for Screensavers and basic branding . You only need one for more advanced replacement of the interface
