Seriously, just get NextDayVideo to do the video; it's cost effective and
low touch. They have done a huge number of events including PyCon AU (the
last 3 events, plus an LA event) and PyCon US (an event 4 times the size of
LCA). The biggest restriction for them is how fast the upload pipe is,
with sufficient upload speed they really do provide videos the next day.
They know all the tricks to getting good video and where all the problems
occur (for example, making sure you pick up chargers, cabling and spares
from the A/V place). *It's taken them 5 years to get this right, it is
notsomething a new team is going to get right first time.

As an ex-PyCon AU I highly recommend their services, and I'm sure Chris and
Josh from this year would as well.

Ryan (one of the next day owners) has helped out at various LCAs but always
gets hamstrung by getting called in at the last minute and not being given
full control over it. I'm considering bidding myself and NextDayVideo would
be the only group I'd consider for video.
