Do any departments or organizations regularly live-stream or record presentations? What is the simplest way to start doing this and end up with decent-quality video and audio that can be archived? Like all things, it would be best if the answer is free, technologically idiot-proof, and done by somebody else.
For a bit more context, our regular colloquium setup is a single speaker standing at the front of a small or medium-sized classroom. Speakers almost never use a microphone, they typically use a personal laptop to connect to the projector, and I don't believe there is any recording equipment built into the room.
