I can agree and also disagree. I would hope that we don't end up relying
on a laptop's webcam for broadcasting the meeting.

I think it's worth looking ahead and getting some sort of setup that
meets a certain level of quality (hopefully trying out before the
meeting begins to make sure it works as expected). This still leaves a
rather broad range of hardware considerations.

If you think about it a bit, it would be sad that a meeting devoted to
graphical software can't manage to put together some sort of open source
(reasonable) quality video of the conference.
