Big Blue Button (BBB) already integrates with Matterhorn for the recording of web-meetings. For many scenarios it would be great to have an even simpler version of this, where only the lecturer and his presentation will be recorded. This should be done without any additional hardware needed (except a mic and a webcam), and it would be great if not even software would need to be installed on the lecturers machine. So with some modifications to the BBB setup or a new module for Red5 such a remote capture system could be created.
