On the Icon series systems..
The only thing you can control about sleep is the "Consumer Electronics Control" --
-> we want to adjust the actual sleep timer value (minutes?) and possibly disable sleep entirely on the icons.
we also have several customers that are asking if it isn't possible to change this setting.
This are all users that are used to work with a 220 series before and now missing a lot of configuration possibilities in the ICON, they see it as a device with better video quality but a lack of configuration possibilities.
(like identification under system or video number under system and most of all the possibility to manually add entries in favorites)
Some of our employees can barely figure out how to join a meeting. Trying to show them how to find the sleep button will just confuse them further.
This seems to me like a critical feature that needs to be added. It's there on the Room and Room 220, why it isn't on the Icon is beyond me. I've had numerous customers complain about this, please get it added ASAP.
If you enable sleep & CEC and aslo HDMI DPMS then when you turn off your TV the icon will go to sleep mode after 5 seconds, and when you turn the TV on the icon will wake up inmediatly. so there is no need to add any config or button at all.
This works when icon is hooked to a TV(LCD), dont know if still functional when using a different display type
Lifesize is really a strange company. About 50 partners are asking about very simple enhancement, complaining about lost of opportunities. But Lifesize is still "considering" ... more than one year. Too bad!
We do understand the benefits of adding a sleep timer setting. Unfortunately, we are not able to address all features requests as fast as we would like. We work to prioritize customer feedback while balancing adding new capabilities.
For example, in the upcoming 2.11 release we are adding support for support for 802.1x authentication and X.509. Following that release, we are adding the capability to integrate the Icon with your calendaring system (see our Coming Soon post here)
While we don't have a timetable for adding the sleep timer features, I am going to move the status to researching since it is capability we would like to enable.
Please don't hesitate to reach-out if you would like to discuss further and we can setup a call.
Thank you for your response.
My current customer (Nuclear Power Plant) is very lacking this feature in their new conference room.
I know, that Lifesize has very restricted development resourses and can't realize each customers wish. I understand, that implementing of timer feature in GUI may be a quite complex task, but simple disable GUI Sleep via API-command would be enough in 99% cases. You will receive 50 or even more "Likes" from satisfied peoples.
Development work for this feature is currently being planned. Targeting a release near the end of Q1.
Also for us and our customers is very important to have this feature
When will it be released?
Unfortunately, the team has had to delay this work. It is still planned but has not been set for a release target yet. Will update when we have more information to share.
I post here (there're are threads on this subject) just to raise up hand on this annoying subject, I suppose still planned by Lifesize, but unfixed yet.
Any time schedule ?
Paolo, we dp have some major releases coming out for Icon in the month of March. However, the resources have not been able to address this issue so we do not have a timing to share.
