Using a SoundPoint IP 450 we start by creating a configuration file (in this example called background.cfg) and we are changing the Sailboat256x116.jpg Option 2 as follows:
(attached as NewSailboat256x116.jpg)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> <!-- Application SIP Wolverine 3.3.4.0085 19-Dec-11 00:05 --> <!-- Created 02-02-2012 14:52 --> <POLYCOM> <bg bg.medRes.gray.bm.2.name="NewSailboat256x116.jpg" /> </POLYCOM>
We are loading the new configuration (background.cfg) via the 000000000000.cfg or a individual <mac>.cfg:
We can then via the Menu select the new Background Picture:
The Phone will then show the new Background:

Connect to the Phone via its IP address and select the Preference => Background option.
Click on + Add a new Background Image
