The recording option in Synergy SKY enables users to easily add recording to a meeting. The recording integration requires a recording service by one of the supported providers and a resource account in the calendar system that users add to their invitation when scheduling a meeting. The resource account can even be added to and/or removed from the meeting after the meeting has started to only record a part of the meeting.
Three different recording services are supported: Panopto, Quickchannel and REC.VC.
Common for all three is that you will have to add one Connection and one API integration (refer to Integration Settings for further details).
|On-premise MCU||This feature requires a supported MCU, please refer to each individual recording provider for more details.|
Step by Step Guide
Panopto delivers a RTMP based recording service which is supported with Pexip Infinity MCU. Recordings are stored in the Panopto cloud service under the account of the meeting organizer with the same title that was defined in the meeting invitation.

The Panopto service returns the URL used to view the meeting when the meeting is booked. This URL can be automatically be embedded into the meeting invitation by referring to the %StreamingPath% variable in the 'Recording footer' template, refer to How To: Configure Email Templates.
The integration user needs to have "admin" permissions in your Panopto account.
Quickchannel delivers a RTMP based recording service which is supported with Pexip Infinity MCU. Recordings are stored in the Quickchannel service under the account of the meeting organizer with the same title that was defined in the meeting invitation. A new account will be created for the organizer if an existing account was not found.
