Hi Euan et al, 

Two further points on this - IMHO, the video team
should be separated from the LCA conf organisers as much as possible -
any human cost should not spill out to impact the conf organisers. if
something has to not happen because of lack of person-power in the video
team, then so be it - no impact on the conf. Swim-laning/containment.

Also, Tim's streaming interface had a really neat feature - the
ability to either block the stream from a set of IPs (such as the
conference delegate networks), or only offer low bandwidth streams to a
set of IPs. This discourages the "sitting in a room watching another
presentation behaviour somewhat. Of course you cant catch every 3G or
VPN connected client, but its about the majority/path of least
