so if we did one room - we'd need two video camera feeds and two volunteers to move them around as needed? What were your hardware requirements, especially storage? Was a camcorder sufficiently good quality video?
Two cameras and three volunteers (one per camera and one for the mixer). DV is 13GB/hour, so ~100GB/day/room. We've mostly used consumer camcorders but sometimes had the use of 1 "prosumer" camera. More information on the wiki.
Note, though, that LPC is a developer-run conference - by developers, for developers. Not quite as slick as a professionally run conference (it's not actually a Linux Foundation event - they just assist us on some things). So we're sometimes constrained by our volunteer focus and budget limitations.
Same for DebConf.
BTW, do you have slides for your BoF session, or any notes or summary that you'd like to have us put up on the Program page? :)
No, there's nothing beyond the list of items included in the description.
