how to set the same a logo for 7940 and 7911, 7912 IP phones

Unanswered Question
Dec 3rd, 2008

I have already set a logo in idle url opction in CME7.0. for 7940 and 7960 but because of the difference of the size with 7911 and 7912 the logo is not displayed in the last ones.

is it possible to set the same logo taking into account different sizes of phone's screen?


I have this problem too.

You have to use the specified size for each phone, the screen size as you know for the 7911/12 is much smaller and as such the pixel size is smaller.

But why annoy the user with an idle option on the screen, why not apply the logo to he background instead, playing with the pixel size will allow you to fit this accordingly

Hi here is the links for version 6 and for version 4 as you did not say what version you were on. These are for the 7961 but the pixel size is the same





Ver 4

Was not really possible

Ver 6

All the guides can be found here

And to modify I use the Gimp drawing tool as the files need to be saved as PNGs. And I have found this the best and quickest to use

If you have any problems feel free to come back to me

If you have 7940/60 phones you have to use the idle url sorry i may have misinformed you.

Look at this link and this should help if these are indeed the type of phone you have

Hi Filiberto,

Just to add a note to the great tips so far from my friend Paul :)

You should be able to do this using the methods in this doc along with the 7911 image size's listed in the thread below (great info Mike);

CallManager Express: Create a Customized Background Image for the 7970 IP Phone

From Mike;

Hope this helps!
