Question about Lands Phones

3 Answers

Hello, I don't have a problem as of yet; but I'm asking for advice prior to use. I bought 2 DVD 1000 videophones. I downloaded the manual & have been reading it for 2 days now. In the back of the device is a jack for a microphone. I would like to get some recommendations (from tech support) before I go out & spend good money on something that just won't work. Thank you for your time & trouble. Respectfully, HowardJ

Appreciate the confirmation that it is a D-Link DVC-1000 i2eye Broadband Video Phone.

Your concern:

  • The pink microphone jack is for an optional external microphone. Optional because there is already a built-in mic.
  • Additionally, if you use the handset/phone, both the optional external and the built-ins are muted.
  • Either the built-in or the external are only used when the device is set to SpeakerPhone mode.
  • An external microphone would perform better (than the built-in) since its direction can be adjusted, could be moved away from the DVC-1000 or speaker to reduce feedback (limit is length of mic cable/cord), high end external mic have better sound quality and sensitivity.
  • Examples are here, here, here, or here. Pls make sure that they are not USB ported.
  • There are even lapel type or wireless.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Connect a telephone line and TV to the D-Link i2eye DVC-1000, plug in a standard Ethernet network cable that is connected to your broadband Internet connection, and you are ready to conduct real-time videophone calls


    • Make outgoing calls using Direct IP address entry with an on-screen keyboard, Speed Dial list or the built-in directory.
    • Answer calls with the remote control or telephone.
    • Built-in caller ID lets you know who is calling, with privacy via Video/Audio Mute and the Do Not Disturb mode.
    • Connection ports for an external microphone, phone cord, audio and video cords and Ethernet RJ-45 port.
    • Features a half-duplex speakerphone.


    • Turns any TV into a broadband videophone.
    • No PC required.
    • Up to 30 frames per second for smooth video.
    • Works with phone signalers for flashing lamp notification.

    Bring family, friends and colleagues closer with videophone calls. Both D-Link i2eye models (DVC-1000 and DVC-1100) are stand-alone devices - no computer required! This is an ideal solution for homes or small businesses for keeping in touch, conducting meetings and more.

    Consumers who are Deaf can make videophone calls by calling the Video Relay Service to use a VRS interpreter, or by calling another user directly. Any phone signaler may be used with a videophone to flash a lamp for visual notification of incoming videophone calls. With a phone signaler that transmits to remote receivers, you can be notified not just in one room, but in other rooms where the receiver is connected to a lamp or strobe light.

    Connecting the DVC-1000 Videophone:

    • Place the D-Link DVC-1000 videophone directly on top of a television. To obtain the best viewing experience, the videophone should be 5-10 feet away from the intended subject.
    • Attached the supplied white and yellow audio/video cable to the DVC-1000 and to the matching audio/video jacks on the television or VCR.
    • Attach the supplied Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the videophone and to the cable or DSL modem or ethernet network device (hub, switch or router).
    • Attaching a telephone is optional, but recommended for optimal sound quality when videoconferencing. Attach a standard telephone cable to the telephone and directly to the DVC-1000. Do NOT attach the telephone to a wall telephone outlet.
    • Plug the supplied AC power cable into an AC outlet and then connect the other end to the videophone.
    • Attaching an external microphone is optional, but recommended for optimal sound for a group videoconference.

    The DVC-1000 is meant to be used in conjunction with a TV, and placed on top like a set-top unit. It connects to a TV or other device using standard RCA cables, which are included. It is about the size of a hard cover book, and not heavy at all. At the heart of the unit is a camera that supports a resolution of up to 352x288 at 30fps, though this figure may vary according to available bandwidth and so forth.

    The unit does have a built in microphone for speakerphone mode, but it is advisable to use a microphone or telephone so that full-duplex mode will be enabled;

    when in speakerphone mode voice communication is only available in half-duplex mode, meaning that only one side can speak and be heard at any given time. When connecting a telephone for use as a handset to the DVC-1000, you won't be able to use the telephone to place regular phone calls; rather it can only be used with the videophone itself.

  • mastermind10 Oct 09, 2008

    You can connect the DVC-1000 to a computer, but you'll need some sort of capture device or card that supports RCA style inputs. But as the DVC-1000 was designed to be used with a TV, its preset focal distance is not ideal for use with a computer monitor. The focus can be adjusted somewhat, but clearly was not meant for large deviations. Additionally, the DVC-1000 is controlled by its remote control; almost all input is done via the remote. Some interesting specs are the ARM-9 processor; as this is a standalone device, the DVC-1000 must have the power necessary to compress and decompress video and audio properly. Additionally, D-Link has made the videophone firmware upgradeable, so any issues and new features may be addressed and added. The data rates refer to what the maximum send and receive rates of the DVC-1000 can be set to, and these figures must be set manually. As the DVC-1000 conforms to the video and audio standards relating to H.323, it'll work with many H.323 compliant clients out there.
    The DVC-1000 came nicely packaged as many of D-Link's products do, and was well protected. The videophone itself came with a rubber lens cap on, to protect the lens from dust and scratches, and it's a good idea to keep the lens cap in place when you're not using the device. The remote came with 2xAAA batteries; it's nice to see that you don't need to rush out and buy these little things to get this product working. The A/V cables and a CAT-5 cable for data were also included. The included Quick Install Guide and Manual were also up to par, each being full of screen shots and helpful pictures to guide you on your way. D-Link wanted the DVC-1000 to be an easy to use solution, and the starting point of this was their always-informative manuals. Overall, the DVC-1000 came in a complete package that left little to be desired, and it's nice to see D-Link put together a full package, rather than skimping on things to save a few cents per unit

    Being fairly small, the DVC-1000 will fit nicely on top of almost any TV, and because of its small size, low weight and gripping feet, it'll stay where you put it. The only minor placement problems you might run into are a result of the length of the RCA and power cables; the RCA audio/video cables are only about 1.5m long, and the AC adapter is only 1.8m. If the connections on your TV/VCR are quite a ways away, or the power bar is is not close by, these distances will not suffice. A remote is pretty much necessary for operation as if you're not using a telephone as a handset, all the input will be done via the remote. However, this results in just one more remote being added to the collection of remotes around your TV or entertainment center.

    The front of the unit shows the status of the DVC-1000 through a series of LEDs. The square LED to the immediate left of the lens shows the activity of a call - it'll be red when there's a call in progress. The remote sensor is to the right of the lens, and then comes the status LED and power LED. The status LED should only be on briefly when you power up the unit, otherwise it should be off unless the DVC-1000 is perhaps defective - useful as a quick diagnostic tool. As you can see from the side view, the DVC-1000 isn't bulky and hence won't look ugly on top of your TV. As with most consumer devices nowadays, the silver case is made of plastic.

    There is a focusing ring around the lens, as is the case with many cameras. It is really only for making minute adjustments, which is all you should need to do; the ring is quite tight and when you turn it counter-clockwise it appears to unscrew and suddenly get loose, and if you're dumb enough to keep loosening it (like I did), the lens eventually comes out. Tightening the lens helps focus on more distance objects, while counter-clockwise motion helps to focus in closer. You shouldn't have to make a lot of adjustments though, as by default the DVC-1000 will focus well if you're about 8-10ft or so away - which is about how far you need to be if you want to be in the camera's field of view properly. Though the lens assembly can tilt up or down quite a bit, it can't swivel from side to side, so you'll need to position the whole entire unit accordingly during setup. A nice addition was the sticker on the bottom that explained all of the camera's connections and status lights; this is the same diagram found in the quick setup guide. It's a bit redundant though, as D-Link pretty much labelled every connection itself nicely

    As the DVC-1000 is a standalone device that doesn't require a computer at all to use, a remote control is included, along with the batteries needed to operate it. It's pretty much a standard remote, not big at all at around 16cm in length. It's easy to hold, and the button placement with the Enter and arrow keys right where your thumb rests makes it easy to use as well. A number of buttons are in place to provide quick access to useful functions, such as the Enter button which brings up the on-screen keyboard for character input, and the cancel button, which backs you out of a menu quickly, removing the need to use the arrow keys to get to the cancel button on-screen.

    Using a phone also enables full-duplex audio; that is you will be able to talk and hear the other person at the same time. While using the speakerphone in the DVC-1000, audio is only half-duplex; you will only be able to talk or listen, but not do both at the same time. What is worse is that speakerphone automatically determines when the noise level is high enough to transmit; thus if you're in a loud room the speakerphone will always been transmitting audio, and because of the half-duplex impediment, you won't be able to hear the other side.

    The back of the unit sports all of the connections. A *******/off switch is followed by the RJ-45 connector, a mic input, an RJ-11 phone jack for use with a telephone as a handset, and the RCA connectors for attachment to your TV. The Ethernet connection has the small status and activity LEDs as any normal jack should have, and as mentioned before, the interface sports only a 10Mbps connection; this shouldn't matter as the necessary data rate for the DVC-1000 is far below this.
    However the most interesting connection on the back is the phone jack, which allows you to hook up a regular telephone. I was initially confused at this, but it's pretty simple. A phone connected to the DVC-1000 will *not* be able to make regular phone calls as it's not connected to a phone line any more, but instead the phone's handset will be used as an input/output device for the DVC-1000. Basically, this transforms the DVC-1000 into a true videophone that operates in the same way as a regular phone. When you want to make a call, you simply take the phone off its hook (or press "Talk" if you've connected a cordless phone), and the DVC-1000 will detect that the phone is engaged; it will then prompt you to dial a number or select a speed-dial entry - you can do both just by using the keypad on the phone's handset. Similarly, when someone calls you, picking up the phone will answer the call. This feature indicates D-Link was very much aiming to make the DVC-1000 easy to use for everyone - by making the basic operation as similar to a phone as possible, this has ensured that almost everyone should be able to use it easily

Brand New Phone won't charge

Apologies for asking the obvious, but have you removed the battery cover on the handset to ensure that the battery pack is connected? There should be two wires from the battery pack, black and red, which terminate in a plug. That plug must be securely fitted into the corresponding socket inside the handset.

If that is all OK, then I suggest you swap the battery pack from the working handset and see if that works in the one that will not charge. By doing this you should be able to determine if it is the battery at fault, or the handset.

DLINK i2eye DVC-1000 videophone


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

With reference to your concern "...XX...", to my knowledge, yes. Although the unit has its own built-in speakerphone, the telco jack at the rear can accommodate:
  • cordless phones;
  • external speakerphones;
  • phone recorder; and
  • regular landline phones.
