Connection Diagram

NOTE: The Nureva Aux In / Out connections are single-ended, unbalanced signals with default maximum output signals as given in the table below. Any equipment requiring voltages below these levels may result in clipping, distortion and, in extreme cases, damage to connected systems. Equipment requiring voltages above these levels will not be adequately driven by the HDL300 system’s output signal and may result in quiet / no audio on the channel. Before connecting to the Nureva Connect Module, make sure the third-party device voltage levels are adequate or adjusted properly by additional interfacing hardware.

Creating custom cables

Prepare two 3.5mm jack cable with the three pins positive (+), negative () and ground (G) as per Nureva Auxiliary port recommendations. Label one ‘Cable 1’, and the other ‘Cable 2’.

See the article What kind of auxiliary jacks are compatible with the HDL300 system? for more information.

On the HDL300 connect module

  1. Plug Cable 1 into the Aux out port
  2. Plug Cable 2 into the Aux iport
  3. Connect the PoE cable (provided) to the RJ45-1 port on the connect module and the other end to the HDL300
  4. Plug in the 54VDC power supply

On the Lifesize 4k Icon 700 system

  1. Plug Cable 1 into the Microphone In on the I/O panel
  2. Plug Cable 2 into the Speaker Out on the I/O panel
  3. Connect the Lifesize Icon 700 video system to the network via the LAN port
  4. Navigate to the IP address of your Icon 700 video system portal from a web browser
  • Navigate Account Settings => System Behaviour => Audio
  • Set Audio output to TV Display or Speakers
  • Set Default Audio device to Echo Cancelling Speakerphone (HDL300)
  • Disable Automatic Echo Cancellation for Microphone (if active)

NOTE: - Poor audio and video quality might result from insufficient bandwidth on your network. Follow the recommendations from Lifesize, who recommend that your network be capable of at least 1 Mb/s (incoming and outgoing) for a high definition video call. 

NOTE: The Nureva Aux In / Out connections are single-ended, unbalanced signals with default maximum output signals as given in the table below. Any equipment requiring voltages below these levels may result in clipping, distortion and, in extreme cases, damage to connected systems. Equipment requiring voltages above these levels will not be adequately driven by the HDL300 system’s output signal and may result in quiet / no audio on the channel. Before connecting to the Nureva Connect Module, make sure the third-party device voltage levels are adequate or adjusted properly by additional interfacing hardware.

NOTE: If you experience echo or audio whining/interference, you may need to convert the HDL300 Line Out unbalanced signal to a balanced signal for the Icon 800 Input. Nureva has tested and recommends the Rolls MB15b Promatch converterwhich also requires a 3.5 mm/XLR mating connector.

NOTE: The Nureva Aux In / Out connections are single-ended, unbalanced signals with default maximum output signals as given in the table below. Any equipment requiring voltages below these levels may result in clipping, distortion and, in extreme cases, damage to connected systems. Equipment requiring voltages above these levels will not be adequately driven by the HDL300 system’s output signal and may result in quiet / no audio on the channel. Before connecting to the Nureva Connect Module, make sure the third-party device voltage levels are adequate or adjusted properly by additional interfacing hardware.
