Audio Manager

Note: To display only the features present on a particular device, select one or more filters from the SmartDocs bar below.

Overview

The Audio Manager (AudioMgr) controls a small number of specialized audio functions on Zebra devices, including whether audio on a device plays only through a connected handset or is replicated on the built-in device speaker (so that it plays on both). AudioMgr also controls whether a sound is played when the device is connected to a charger.

The replication feature was developed for the VC80x vehicle-mount computer, which has a custom port for attaching the Zebra M1000 handset. AudioMgr can force audio normally sent only to the M1000 speaker to be replicated on the VC80x's built-in speaker. This addresses the issue of missed communications that can arise when the handset is not being worn.

AudioMgr is supported only on the Zebra VC80x vehicle mount computer.
