In the past, I have written blogs about the importance of customizing your workplace. One of the best ways to do this is bringing in pictures from home, and even changing the wallpaper on your deskphone!

This process usually falls into the category of “basic” when dealing with most IP phones, and the same goes for the Yealink CP960. The only difference is this is a conference phone, and not like;y to be on your desk!

What I thought was cool is that even though this is a conference phone, and most likely to be used by several different people around the office, it is still fully customizable. Everything from the wallpaper to the ringtone to so much more!

For this blog, we will table how to change the wallpaper because that is a pretty popular thing when it comes to the customization of your phone. The CP960 will give you a list of preloaded wallpapers to choose from. If you would like to upload your own image, you will have to do that from the phone’s Web GUI, so it might be best to contact your Systems Administrator for help on that.

How to Change the Wallpaper on the Yealink CP960cp960

One thing that I will tell you is that the phone screen size is 5 inches or 720×1280. So when choosing a customer phone for this phone, make sure it will fit! In any case, if you want to keep it simple and use one of the preloaded images, then just follow these easy steps:

  1. Tap Settings from the home screen
  2. Tap Display from the Basic block
  3. Tap Wallpaper
  4. The touch screen will then display the current-used wallpaper with alternative built-in backgrounds on the bottom of the touch screen
  5. Select a desired wallpaper from the built-in wallpaper list
  6. Tap Set wallpaper

And that’s it! With something this simple, why not a little variety to your conference room? Just get ready for it to be a different background each time you use your Yealink CP960!

Do you have a Yealink CP960 in your conference room? If not, what conference phone do you use? We want to know!

The Yamaha CS-700 comes with advanced features tailored to small businesses’ collaboration requirements. let’s take a peek at some highlights of the Yamaha CS-700:

  • Remote Management allows users to remotely monitor, manage, and upgrade unit automatically through the IP interface. Managing hundreds of huddle rooms has become simpler than ever.
  • 120-degree ultra-wide-angle cameras capture all meeting participants in one field of view, covering more than 80% area in the room without the need of zooming in the cameras. The high pixel count also allows users to see the individual expressions from the room clearly.
  • A beamforming microphone array picks up every single word spoken in the room and delivers it to the far end. The four-element speaker bar provides high-quality audio, ensuring you an easy, natural conversation.
  • USB and SIP communications can be bridged easily in the CS-700 system. It supports multiple business communication applications such as Microsoft® Skype for Business, Google Chromebox for Meetings, BlueJeans®, Zoom®, and more. Additionally, the Bluetooth function enables fast and easy audio connections, instantly turning any mobile calls into a conferencing call.
  • The wall mount system design provides the simplest installation and makes connecting the wires to the CS-700 easy and quick.
