Using the Cisco Video Communications Server (VCS), you can configure permanent conferences, which will automatically add a Verba Recording Server into the conference.
This lets you record video conferences with minimal change in user behavior.
Step 1 - Configuring the Verba Recording System
Please follow the configuration steps in Configuring Verba for SIPREC recording.
Step 2 - Configuring VCS
Follow these guidelines when creating a Permanent Conference:
Step 1 - Configure the Verba Recording Server as an Endpoint
Step 2 - Make sure on the Endpoint you configure Automatic Disconnect
Step 3 - Pick a user and create a Permanent Conference for that user as "chair" (each regulated user could have their own Permanent Conference number created)
Step 4 - Configure the Verba Recording Server alias as pre-configured participant in the Permanent Conference
End User experience
In order to do recorded conversations the users should follow this procedure:
Step 1 - The chair should call a Permanent Conference
Step 2 - Other participants should join the same conference
Step 3 - Execute the meeting then terminate normally
Behind the scenes:
- After Step 2, the MCU will automatically call the Verba Recording Server into the call.
- After Step 3 (when the last person leaves the call), the connection to the Verba Recording Server is terminated
