I don't suppose anybody would be able to tell me how to record local video on a group 500 or if not a way in which to go about recording for educational purpose that can be streamed at a later point?
The idea behind the RealPresence Group series is that the recording would be done in the network, with the Group 300 and 500 there is no output for recording the conference. You can do it by adding a SoundStructure to capture the near and far end audio and then just recorder one of the video outputs using a VDA.
The Group 700 has the hardware output to do recording and the software will be available in the EOY release.
The recording feature of the Group 700 is scheduled to be in the release scheduled for late in the year, at that time the RealPResence Group Admin Guide will have information about configuring for that feature.
