Any way to record an Android device doing fully managed AE enrollment from start to finish?

I need to do a video demo of a AE fully managed enrollment from start to finish. I've seen some promotional videos on youtube so I am sure there is there a way to connect an android device to a computer and capture the video output and record it. Every time I have done this in the past, you couldn't do this until it got to the homescreen, because you had to enable developer mode and usb debug, which means you can't do a video of a fully managed device. I have an hdmi video capture card, just not sure what else I need.

The one app I have tried is ApowerMirror. You do have to have debug mode enabled, and sometimes it takes a while for the devices to be recognized. I loaded on Mac and recorded with QuickTime Player. I was able to do full MDM, Agent based enrollment recordings. Again, be patient. it works. There were other apps, but I couldn't get them to work. ApowerMirror was the only one. I used a Samsung Galaxy S7. Hope this helps you.

So you did a work profile enrollment where the device was already setup and just downloaded the hub from the play store. I know this method works, I’ve used vysor to stream from the device to my computer and capture the home screen many times. But, this method requires developer mode and usb debug. 

I’m looking for fully managed/cope, where the device is factory wiped and it is first turned on. At the sign into play store screen, you do “afw#hub”. That puts it into fully managed/cope. 

I know there’s a way to output the video of the device and capture it from stat to finish, as I have seen videos of this, I just am not sure how this is done.

I didn't try anything from Factory reset with Android. It was for an Employee Owned device and post Hub install. In the early days I tried afw / AE, and it didn't work for me. So, I gave it up. Maybe I need to go back and try it again. Most of out COPE are iOS devices.

A lot of Android devices support HDMI output via the USB port on the device, either through a vendor-specific connector technology (Samsung...), USB On-The-Go (OTG), or similar.  You could then feed this HDMI feed to an HDMI capture card and record it to your computer using OBS or whatever software you prefer.

Those are my suggestions, anyhow.  The hardware will probably cost $25-$120 all told, depending on the quality you want.  You will have to check device compatibility on the HDMI output dongles.  But then you'd be able to record practically everything - maybe even the boot screen if you really wanted.

Or you could set up an emulator and do a screen capture on it.  I'm not entirely sure how well that would work, however.
