Zoom allows for watermarking both the video and audio within your meetings. This can help to identify who has recorded a meeting if you otherwise would not like the content of the meeting shared. Please Note: doing so will limit your Zoom meeting to only members of Davidson College.
Audio Watermarks: The Audio Watermark, or Audio Signature, feature embeds a user’s personal information into the audio as an inaudible watermark if they record during a meeting. If the audio file is shared without permission, Zoom can help identify which participant recorded the meeting.
Video watermarks: Video watermarks embeds a watermark of the user who is recording the meeting across the screen. and video. For instance, the user John Doe, with email email@example.com, would have "jodoe" watermarked on any recordings he made of any zoom meeting with watermarks enabled.
To enable watermarks for a meeting, you will need to schedule the meeting through the web portal. Additionally, meetings will be restricted to members of the Davidson College Community. Please reach out to T&I at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions on this.
