The recording console allows you to make recordings interactively. That is, it allows you to monitor the recording while it is in progress, to check that the view is as you require.
Refer to the sections below for further information on using the recording console:
To access the recording console by calling the IP VCR via the auto attendant, follow these steps:
The may use the IP VCR web interface to call out to your video endpoint and display the recording console. To connect to the recording console in this way, follow these steps:
The recording console display is intentionally simple. Refer to the table below for a description of the different parts of the display:
In the center of the screen, a window shows a live preview of the video being sent by the endpoint to the IP VCR. Use this preview to ensure the recorded view is composed as you require before starting to record. You may also monitor this view whilst recording.
Note that although the audio portion of the call will also be recorded, this is not sent back to the endpoint like the video preview, as this would cause undesirable feedback effects.
A status indication is displayed in the bottom left-hand corner of the recording console. It shows the current state of recording. When you first enter the recording console, the status indication will show paused.
The length of the recording is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, as minutes and seconds. When you first enter the recording console, this will show a zero-length recording. The recording length will update in real-time as recording progresses. Use this as a guide to how long your recording will be.
The recording indicator is shown only whilst recording is in progress, and hence will not be visible when you first enter the recording console. When you start recording, this indicator will blink near the top right-hand corner of the screen.
When you first enter the recording console, you will hear audio instructions on which controls you may use. Recording will not start until you are ready. Refer to the table below for details:

Starts recording. The status line will change from paused to resuming... then to recording.
When you start recording, the IP VCR waits for a suitable moment before actually starting to record. This is to ensure the best possible quality video is recorded. During this time the status line shows resuming.... Be sure to wait until the status line says recording before starting to speak.
Stops recording. The status line will change from recording to finished.
When you have finished recording, you will not be disconnected from the IP VCR unless you hang up the call.
Note that even when you have finished recording, IP VCR resources are still in use until the call is ended, possibly preventing other users from making recordings in the meantime.
You do not have to explicitly stop recording. If you wish, you may simply hang up the call when you have finished. Whether you press stop or simply hang up, the recording will be automatically stored by the IP VCR.
