Project HDMI Switcher Part 2 - Touch 10 Control

If you not familiar with the setup for this project please visit for the introduction.

In part 2 we are going to cover building the Cisco Touch 10 UI for controlling out HDMI switch. This is pretty easy as the UI control involves a button that is available in in and out of calls and the panel to allow selecting different inputs.

In-Room Control Primer

If you are not familiar with building custom interfaces on a Touch 10 controller please check out this primer from the Webex Team I posted recently first. It's a great intro for getting into working with the tools that allow you to create projects just like this one.

Back to the Project...

After accessing the In-Room Control Editor I created a panel and added a 4 button widget. Make sure to select the "Panel is Available Always". You may want to switch HDMI inputs mid-call.

In-Room Panel Creation
Once you have created your panel, select your icon and color for the panel button.
Button icon and color selection
We have our panel selected, our color and icon for the button, let us take a closer look at those widgets. As you can see below it's pretty simple. The ID's are aligned to the inputs on our HDMI switch so not to confuse us. To make it simple the button IDs are 1 - 4. The ID's are super important as this is what the Macros will use to identify what was pressed. Make sure to label the buttons on the widget with what the HDMI selections are.

Simple Button ID

What you end up with is something similar to the screenshots below on the Touch 10. Our switch has a purple button with something that looks switch-ish for the icon.

Next post, we will cover the Macro used to turn the UI into actions to control our Switch.
