This would normally require a pc from the foundation, in order to have a
special sw installed, and it does not really give a good outout.

the cheap solution of this, is to have an audit marker (typically a button
on the mike), and then ask the speaker to press the button at every slide
change. That way it is easy to synchronize audio/presentation afterwards.

We could also consider having a fixed (unmanned) video recording in each
room, that would make everything easier. It is surely more expensive than
audio only, but I have been told by a pro. that the difference is less than
20%.

just my 2ct.
