Skype TX Controller

The Skype TX controller manages the incoming Skype and Microsoft Teams calls by allowing allocation of calls to channels. An array of features allows control over the calls. When combined with the Quicklink TX Control Panel, this works seamlessly to provide an exceptional user experience.

The unit must be connected to an active internet connection in order to log in.  

Once logged into the unit, the TX Controller App channels will need to be added. These channels will be what incoming calls are assigned to. To add a channel, select the grid icon in the top right corner of the software. This will display the channel configuration interface. Enter the host name (unit serial number) or the IP of the Quicklink TX that you wish this channel to control.

Once the channel is added, the option of selecting the channel to be created appears. Select the channel number you wish to add. This is important as the channel number is directly linked to the channel listed in the Quicklink TX Control Panel window.

If the TX is being controlled by a local machine, the software may request the unit credentials in order to connect. The default username is: quicklink. The default password is: tvzstreaming.
