Video Recordings for YAPC::Europe 2012
We are looking at recording some or all talks at YAPC::Europe. The most promising option for recording and publishing the talks seems to be to hire a professional team. We don't want to hire that team just to find out that posting of the talk material is unwanted, like Andrew did in Riga.
As a way forward, we will likely ask for the (audio/video) publishing rights on your talk if you submit one. This will not mean that your talk will necessarily get recorded and published, because we don't know whether we will record all rooms on all days. But all other things being equal, we will give submitted talks preference that allow us to publish the video afterwards.
If you think that recording talks is a waste of money and time, as nobody will watch them anyway, please also comment below. It would save us a great deal of organization if there is consensus that videos are undesireable anyway.
