Integration Overview
Integration Overview
What is the Cisco TelePresence Content Server?
The Cisco TelePresence Content Server (Cisco TCS) is a network appliance that enables organizations to
share knowledge and enhance communication by recording their video conferences and multimedia
presentations for live and on-demand access. The Cisco TCS can be scheduled by Cisco TMS to
automatically include the Cisco TCS into any scheduled event or be used in an ad-hoc manner. The Cisco
TCS workflow will automatically produce high quality videos of any standards based conference from a
MCU, TelePresence Server, or directly from a TelePresence endpoint including the video participants and
any secondary content such as a presentation. Whether it’s a university lecture, a corporate training
session, an executive meeting or any other critical event – the Cisco TelePresence Content Server
streamlines the process of capturing content throughout the organization.
What is Cisco Show and Share?
Cisco Show and Share is a webcasting and video sharing application that helps enterprise organizations
create highly secure video communities to share ideas and expertise. Cisco Show and Share can help
optimize global collaboration through simple creation of videos, and personalize connections between
customers, employees and students through user-generated video content. Cisco Show and Share
provides the ability to create live and on-demand video content and define who can watch specific
content, it offers viewer collaboration tools such as commenting, rating, and word tagging, and it provides
comprehensive access reporting.
Cisco Show and Share is a key component of the Cisco Digital Media Suite, a comprehensive offering of
webcasting and video sharing, digital signage, and Business IPTV applications that can help transform
how organizations learn, grow, communicate, and collaborate.
This Guide’s Goal
This integration guide provides step by step instructions to configure the Cisco TCS to send a live
Windows Media streams to Cisco Show and Share automatically.
Prerequisites
This integration guide assumes that there is a Cisco TelePresence Endpoint (E20, EX60, EX90, C-Series,
or MXP), Cisco MCU 4500 series, or Cisco TelePresence Server that has the ability to make an H.323 or
SIP video call to the Cisco TCS.

Cisco TCS software requirements:
o

TCS S5.0
Cisco Show and Share software requirements:
o
Version 5.2.1 or higher
o
Live Event Manager License is installed.
Note: an E20 is unable to send secondary content channel and will only send main video.

d. This Cisco TCS is configured for gateway mode and has a prefix of “record.” and 813. If
the Cisco TCS is set for terminal mode registrations to the Cisco Video Communication
Server (Cisco VCS), then the prefixes will not appear. To modify the terminal or
gateway setting go to “Configuration”, and then “Site Settings”.

Template Configuration
1. Within the “TCS Live WMV to SnS” recording alias under the Recording Settings section there is
the ability to modify an existing template or add a new one. For this document a new Template
will be added. To modify an existing template select the template from the drop down box and
click “Edit”. Make the modifications and click “Save”.
2. Click “Save” at the top or bottom to save the recording alias.
3. Under the Recordings Settings section click “Add” at the end of the Template line and the “add
template window” will appear.
