After spending 13 years in television broadcasting I can attest to the fact
that providing full motion video of the proceedings would be a big job and
take up a lot of bandwidth. You'd need quite a few DVD's. Also, shooting
the screen with a video camera would result in a relatively low resolution
and poorly lit image. Your suggestion is a good compromise - capture the
presenter's audio and link it to the slide presentation. You could add a
few shots of the presenter and the audience to add some intimacy.

To do a reasonable job of producing a DVD video of each presentation
is quite a task - It takes more than simply pointing a video camera
at the slides which are often unreadable or the audio is c$£p. It
would be better to get a simple audio recording and then listen to
that whilst looking at still images of the slides.
At the AMSAT-UK colloquium this year I collected together as many of
the presentations as I could and converted each to a format viewable
as a slide show in a web browser. I'd liked to have all the
presentations and if I'd managed to get it set up the Audio
recordings as well.
