Lifesize video conferencing: creating a recording

Any teaching delivered over the Lifesize video conferencing equipment, or any video conferencing meetings, can be recorded. It is also possible to create recordings when the video conferencing equipment is not ‘in a call’. This is a quick and easy way to create high quality video recordings of ‘talking heads’ and group discussions.

Lifesize video conferencing equipment is installed at all Hull York Medical School sites. Recordings can be made available through a number of different systems (Blackboard, Echo360 etc.) depending on what is most appropriate for your recording.

This guide will explain how to:

  • record a video conference meeting or teaching session
  • record outside of a video conference or teaching session
  • access recordings

Record a video conference meeting or teaching session

You can initiate a recording at any time from Lifesize equipment. This can either be done by using the Lifesize phone or by using the Lifesize remote.

  1. To start recording during a call, select the circle icon
  2. The recording begins and the red recording icon appears.  If you are in presentation mode, this will take up most of the recording view, with your room and other callers shown in minuscule. If you come out of presentation mode, the screen will record all callers. This may be a split screen view of a two-way call or a main recording view of your room with multiple other callers shown in minuscule.
  3. To stop a recording, end the call or select the red recording icon.Only the user who started the recording can stop the recording.
