Welcome to this article on recording with your Miris stations.
You have successfully connected to your recorder thanks to our article "Connect to Miris Capture" and you have reached the recording page! First of all, we are going to show you the recording interface, which will hold no more secrets for you by the end of this article.
The Miris recording interface
Before you can start recording, you need to have a recording profile set up. We recommend that you read our article on Recording Profiles to find out the ins and outs. When you get to the recording page, you will be asked to choose a profile, and you can configure as many as you like to suit your use cases. They can have different video and audio sources as well as distinct configurations. For example, for exporting your videos on demand (VOD) with your publication targets on the one hand and on the other hand your live broadcasts.
A popup window will open with a list of existing profiles.
Select one and click "Ok" to go to the recording page.
This page is structured like a traditional web page, with a header, main content, footer and sidebars. In the header, you will find five items:
The icons will allow you to open the sidebars on the left for navigation and the other one on the far right for station notifications.
|The navigation sidebar allows you to change the display theme from dark to light, change the language to French or English and log out. By default, the user's period of inactivity, after which the logout pop-up window will be displayed to the user, is five minutes.
|You will find all the notifications sent for the station, sorted by read status: new notifications or read notifications.
Then you have the title of the page which tells you where you are, here in the Record section. After that, you will see the remaining disk space compared to the available storage, along with the current time. The last icon shows you the connection status to your Miris Manager. If you click on it, you'll get additional debugging information: which Miris Manager you are connected to, HTTP and SSH connection status.
In the main content, in the middle at the top, you will access metadata editing with the entry "Set title, description,…", in the center, the preview of the rendering of your recording and on the right, a VU meter for visual control of the sound volume. As the speaker of the video, you can define the metadata by clicking on the button, which will open a pop-up window where you can edit the title of the recording, a description, keywords separated by spaces, the name of the speaker and the name of the company.

The first button indicates the profile currently in use and the button for selecting another profile. In this case, the 'cam-pc' profile is used. The following icon ⨯ stops the current preview and returns to the previous page, i.e. the profile selection page. Next, you will have the option of pausing the recording/live broadcast using the “Pause” button. If you press this button, the word Pause will appear on the screen and the audio will be muted. To resume your recording or live broadcast, please click on the “Resume” button. Of course, the pause sequence will be automatically cut off when the video is rendered.

If you wish, you can then add a chapter marker that will be included in the Nudgis player by clicking on the "Add a chapter" button.
The following button, "Start Live", will allow you to start and stop a live broadcast.
Then, if you wish, you can use the 🔊 button to set the monitoring audio and capture output volume. Please note that the capture volume will only work with your physical audio devices. The volume control, for monitoring audio (does not interfere with the recording volume, it is for preview only and can be muted if required), and capture (affects recording). Note that clicking on the icon mutes the recording (confirmation is requested if it is the capture volume).
Finally, the last button is used to switch the preview to full screen. To exit full screen mode, please press the "Esc" button on your keyboard or the « Exit full screen mode » button on your browser and at last this icon .
