Background Music for NEC DSX
DSX | Features | 59
Broadcast music through the telephone or paging speakers for a more pleasing work environment.
• Using a PGDAD Module audio port as the Background Music source is available in software versions 2.01 and higher.
Background Music (BGM) sends music from a customer-provided music source to speakers in keysets. If an extension user activates it, BGM plays whenever the extension is idle. Incoming calls and Paging announcements temporarily override (turn off) Background Music. Background Music is available from one of six sources: two audio input minijacks, and one of four PGDAD Module audio ports. The source you choose in turn connects to a customer-provided external music source.
• In DSX-40, the audio input minijacks are located on the equipment cabinet.
• In DSX-80/160, the audio input minijacks are located on the CPU PCB.
The external music source you connect to the audio input minijacks is typically a CD player or FM receiver. The source, which you can also use for Music on Hold, must be compatible with the following specifcations:
Music Source Specifcations 10K Ohms Input Impedance +18 dBr (+/- dBr) at 1.0 kHz Relative Input Level
For more on connecting a customer-provided music source, refer to the system’s Hardware Manual.
