Troubleshooter: Capturing Conferencing Server Video Sessions

Can you capture video training sessions on the Web storage of Exchange 2000 Conferencing Server for viewing later? If you can, what equipment do you need to use?

Exchange doesn't include any functionality for capturing video. In fact, Exchange doesn't persistently store any of the audio or video data from a Conferencing Server conference. This omission is probably a great third-party opportunity. A vendor could fairly easily create an application that could capture a T.120 stream from an Exchange Conferencing Server and record it for posterity. Because competing third-party products can already record conference streams, I think Microsoft will add this feature directly to the Exchange Conferencing Server in the future.
