Encore recording is an enhancement to the StarLeaf Cloud conferencing service.

Scheduled conferences can be recorded:

  • You can choose whether or not a conference is recorded from the StarLeaf Portal. In this case, the recording starts when the conference starts, and end when the conference ends
  • You can also choose to record a conference directly from a StarLeaf endpoint. Where the conference controller is using a StarLeaf endpoint, that person can also start and stop the recording from the StarLeaf endpoint and this is regardless of whether or not the conference was selected to be recorded in the StarLeaf Portal

Conference participants who are being recorded are able to see a ‘recording in process indicator’. This is a red dot in the top right corner of the conference view.

Recordings can be downloaded from the StarLeaf Portal and distributed as mp4 files (audio codec: AAC, video codec: H.264). The estimated compression rate is 500 MB per hour or 1.1 Mbps (both after post processing) but bear in mind that this is subject to video motion. Note that the time out for long recordings is 12 hours. Only the conference owner can download the recording.

In an organization that has purchased the StarLeaf Encore solution, recording is available to all users. Users can only see their own recordings in the Portal (a new menu option: My recordings). Admins are able to see all recordings.
