The manual recording of lectures is a common technique today. To enable an automatic recording of lectures we propose an approach based on a sophisticated finite state machine implementing video production rules. The main goal is to improve the quality of the recording and a higher level of engagement of the spectators. In order to test our approach we define the evaluation criteria and compare our approach to a finite state machine using fixed weights. This paper introduces the development of the criteria coming from typical questions of the director of a human camera team. In a second step we test the criteria with two finite state machines. A brief overview of the project status and its first results concludes the paper.
