We got an old vga beamer (1024x786) from the University and mounted it
to the ceiling.

There is just the vga cable from the beamer to a desk, which on talk
days is reserved for the speaker.

One of our members lends us his HD camera so we can record the slides
or the whiteboard if the speaker writes something on it.
A second camera is being discussed so we can record the slides and the
speaker separate and merge the images together like this:
|           |     |
|   slides  | spk |
|           +-----+
|                 |
|                 |
