The million dollar question: How do I get audio from a multi-person phone conference into a Connect Pro Meeting Room? Well, I can make you the Connect Pro Superhero! The parts you need for the solution is a JK Audio – THAT-2 for around two hundred dollars, Computer, Connect Pro Meeting Room, Phone, Phone Conference Bridge, and RCA mini jack plug. The RCA mini jack plugs from the THAT-2 device into the microphone jack into a computer. The person who sets up the phone conference should be the person who opens up the Connect Pro Meeting room as the Host. First, the Host of the meeting should make the call and open up the phone conference. Second, the Host of the meeting can run themselves through the Audio Set-up Wizard to make sure the Connect Room is listening for the audio coming from the THAT-2 device. Next, the Host of the meeting can push the “Hands-free” button inside the Connect Pro Meeting room to start the stream of audio from the phone. I would make sure as the Host not to promote anyone, keep everyone in the room as a Participant because people who are promoted to Presenter or Host could also push the “Hands-free” button and mess up the audio set-up. If you must promote someone higher than a participant, make sure you tell them not to push any buttons! One last piece to your Superhero success, don’t forget to push the record button when you start the meeting.
