Depending on the configuration of the IP VCR, you may be able to make recordings non-interactively. That is, after connecting to the IP VCR, recording takes place automatically, and with no feedback to the user. If you would prefer to have more feedback when making recordings, consider using the recording console (see Using the recording console). Otherwise, refer to the sections below for further information on making non-interactive recordings:
Non-interactive recording gives no feedback as to the status of recording. The IP VCR will not send video to your endpoint, typically causing your endpoint to display a blank screen. You will not be able to monitor how the recording will look.
When the call to or from the IP VCR is connected, recording will typically start immediately. However, the IP VCR may have been configured to delay recording until coherent video is seen. Your system administrator may have configured theIP VCR in this way to ensure the best quality of recordings.
If you are unsure of whether the IP VCR will start recording immediately or not, wait a few seconds before starting to speak; this will ensure the best quality recording in all circumstances.
To make a non-interactive recording by calling the IP VCR using your video endpoint, follow these steps:
Confirm with your system administrator that the Default incoming call action of the IP VCR is to answer incoming calls by recording them immediately (non-interactively) (see Configuring global connection settings).
Alternatively, determine whether the IP VCR has any Recording IDs configured and registered with a gatekeeper, allowing you to make a recording by dialing a phone number (see Configuring gatekeeper settings).
You can also call into the IP VCR from an MCU. See Automatically recording a conference on an MCU
You can use the IP VCR web interface to call out to your video endpoint and record the session non-interactively. To make a recording in this way, follow these steps:
The nature of non-interactive recording is that the user has little or no control over recording. When you have finished recording, simply hang up the call to end and store the recording.
