Application: Request-based conference recording provision (Patent ID: US20240097923A1)

The patent filed by Zoom Video Communications Inc. describes a method and system for generating and providing recordings of video conferences to participants. The server sends invitations for video conferences to proposed participants, who can request a recording of the conference. The recording is generated based on the request and settings associated with the host, and can be subdivided into chapters using an AI-powered chapter identification engine. After the conference, participants receive a message indicating the availability of the recording, with options to view or download it based on permissions set by the host.

The method and system outlined in the patent involve transmitting invitations for video conferences, receiving recording requests from participants, generating recordings based on these requests and host settings, and providing access to the recordings post-conference. The use of an AI-powered chapter identification engine allows for the subdivision of recordings into chapters with start and end timestamps. Additionally, the system allows hosts to set permissions for viewing and downloading recordings based on factors such as the number of requests received or preauthorized user accounts. This technology aims to enhance the user experience of video conferences by providing easy access to recordings for participants, improving post-conference engagement and knowledge retention.
