Two comments: 

1) Some input for the HowTo document we might want to poach ideas from related 
to the video/audio equipment could be the information on the Debian Video Team 
Wiki - they are providing videos of DebConf but also of smaller events like 
the Debian Dev room at FOSDEM: 

I assume we have some standard place to post and collect these videos already?

paid account to publish more than half an hour of video within a few days.

2) This may sound like a wildly crazy idea but looking over the mid-sized box
