Meeting Capture in a Media Enriched Conference Room.


We describe a media enriched conference room designed for capturing
meetings. Our goal is to do this in a flexible, seamless, and unobtrusive
manner in a public conference room that is used for everyday work. Room activity
is captured by computer controllable video cameras, video conference
cameras, and ceiling microphones. Presentation material displayed on a large
screen rear video projector is captured by a smart video source management
component that automatically locates the highest fidelity image source. Wireless
pen-based notebook computers are used to take notes, which provide indexes
to the captured meeting. Images can be interactively and automatically
incorporated into the notes. Captured meetings may be browsed on the Web
with links to recorded video.
