That's cool!!! -- Recording in Sametime Unyte

View Comments
Today, I used Sametime Unyte for the Lotus Social Software community call.  I have to say that I'm very impressed about its recording capabilities.  This community usually utilizes a Sametime Advanced chat room to share a presentation and provide a chat room.  Whenever I wanted to record a presentation, I would use Camtasia, put my phone on speakerphone and record away using my laptop's integrated microphone.  The audio quality wasn't great, but it got the job done.

UnyteToolbar Now in Sametime Unyte, when you log in as the Moderator, you get a 'Record' button in the top toolbar. 

I thought to myself: "Hmm.. maybe this is a good way to record the screen sharing/presentation session".  To my surprise, the following dialog comes up:


WOW!!  "Does this mean that this will record the audio too?", I thought.  Sure enough, I put in the conference dial-in number and the passcode and I hear Sametime Unyte joining my bridge!  NICE!!! smile   So Unyte can record both the presentation/screen and the audio from a conference call-in!!!!  Love It!!! 

Sorry if you all knew this, but I did not know of this feature.

Anyway, after the conference is done, a Flash file is produced automatically and can be posted in a repository for sharing.
