Record a lecture, seminar, workshop or public event to VAVS Telepresence Content Server

Please note content server recordings can only be made from videoconference enabled venues. Touch panels have to be in videoconferencing mode prior to recording – if the panel is in local presentation mode, the session will not be recorded.

If ‘Privacy Mute’ is activated on a touch panel, no audio will be recorded (microphone and presentation audio such as desktop PC, laptop etc) on the recording – please make sure ‘Privacy Mute’ is not activated and the microphone is not muted.
