Encore recording is an enhancement to the StarLeaf meeting service.

Scheduled meetings can be recorded:

  • You can choose whether or not a meeting is recorded from the StarLeaf Portal. In this case, the recording starts when the meeting starts, and ends when the meeting ends
  • You can also choose to record a meeting directly from a StarLeaf endpoint. If your organization gives you recording control permissions you can also start and stop the recording from the endpoint even if record meeting was selected in the Portal

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.

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 (go to: Recordings). Admins are able to see all recordings.

The image below shows the start/stop recording option on the touchscreen controller.

Only the meeting organizer can download the recording. Only the meeting organizer and admin users can view the recording.

For admins: recording control permissions

When a user schedules a meeting and chooses record meeting in the Portal, depending on the recording control permissions, participants can or cannot stop and start recording the meeting from any endpoint.

To adjust these permissions for your organization, go to Portal > Edit organization > Advanced settings > Recording control permissions.

Enabled for all participants in the organization (default)

Any participant can start or stop recording the meeting from any endpoint.

Disabled for all participants when recording is selected at schedule time

All participants, including the meeting organizer, cannot stop recording the meeting.
