Turbine Test and Demo Application

From Zenitel Wiki

(Redirected from Installation of Turbine demo application)
The Turbine Demo Application for software 4.2.x.x

The Turbine Test and Demo Application is a PC application that allows you play audio files directly from the Turbine station without connection to any server. It also allows you to do audio recordings to be used for trouble shooting if there are issues related to audio in the Turbine station.

The client operates on two modes:

  • Test Mode View
  • Demo Mode View

Demo Mode required that an additional audio file package (vsf-demo-media package) is uploaded to the station. Test Mode will work without this package.

There are two versions of the Turbine Test and Demo Application. The new version works with Turbine software 4.2.x.x. The old version is for Turbine software version 3.0.x.x. In case you have Turbine with ver. 3.0.x.x, it is recommended to upgrade to version 4.2.x.x., and use the newest version of the Turbine Test and Demo Application.

Audio Clip to Mic

The feature can be used to route the audio file being played to the mic input instead of speaker output.

  • One test case is calling into a station and get it to automatically talk back to you or send some test signals.

Audio Recording

On the Turbine stations it is possible for debugging purposes to record the audio, and store the audio files on the station it self.

This could be helpful when experiencing audio quality issues. The station will record what it is playing, picking up and what it is sending to the other participant of the conversation after echo- and noise cancellation have been applied.

  • Start Recording: New recording starts and timer counter shows time of running recording
  • Stop Recording: Stop recording and writeout wav headers to .wav files.
  • Download Recording: Click on link and all three recoding files are downloaded to PC. Check Status window for destination


The recorded files:

  • AecSignalMicIn.wav: Recorded signal direct from mic (HW Codec ADC). This signal is only processed by HW Codec by Gain blocks and Filter blocks.
  • AecSignalOut.wav: Signal out from AEC filter and software gain blocks. This is the real signal sent to far-end station in conversation.
  • AecSignalToSpeaker.wav: Signal from far-end station in conversation after decoding audio codec. Played directly to speaker and used as AEC reference signal.

Prefix: A filename prefix for all recordings for easy doing a series of recordings and label them.

Load media files onto Turbine IP station

In order to use the Demo Mode, a Demo Media Package must be installed in the Turbine station. For Test Mode this is not neccessary.

  • Select Save Settings. The file will now be uploaded. This process takes approximately 2 minutes
Upload the media package file


  • When the upload is finished, select Upgrade. The media files will now be installed and the Turbine station will reboot.
