Record a web presentation (something like WebEx)

Hello -

I'm wondering what is out there to meet our objectives.  HR wants to do an online presentation and record the session with their audio so they can make the presentation available to others who could not attend the live presentation.  This would be a one time type deal so I don't want a full subscription with WebEx.  We are; however, of course willing to pay for the one time use of a service.  If I recall correctly, WebEx has pay per use but they won't record it. ?   Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I have seen this type of activity handled very well using low-tech solutions, so don't immediately rule out using a Camcorder or just distributing the PowerPoint to the missing attendees.  If a slideshow is done well, it will convey just as much as the live presentation.  

This company's offerings look to have potential - the Enterprise version has recording and playback functionality and they appear to offer short duration subscriptions.  http://www.elluminate.com/products.jsp

Here are some other links to check out:

And of course Google - I got a lot of hits with 'web meeting', 'web conference', and 'eLearning' search phrases.

Hi, thanks for your earlier comments.

elluminate.com looked promising, and we also came across another provider, http://www.raindance.com.  After speaking with their sales folks, they offer both Rain Dance meeting and also Microsoft's Live Meeting.  Based on their payment plans, we opted to go with their Live Meeting pay-per-use program.  For an hour long meeting, it would cost roughly $200, but they would record it and make it available forever to unlimited users.  We can also download it and deploy the presentation as we see fit.  Rain Dance was a cheaper presentation (roughly $30-40 for an hour), but we would need to pay for each user that later viewed the presentation.

So we're going with a hosted Live Meeting for recording sessions, and sticking with our Lotus Sametime in house solution for non-recorded meetings.  (it works well overall, but bad at recording).
