One thing to consider is charging for this service
I have no problem paying some fee to the IETF in order to get better remote
participation capability when I am unable to travel to the location chosen.
I would much rather pay $200-$300 to have good remote attendance capability
(video etc.) than get by on 'free'.
This would be assuming that there would be some markup on the remote attendance
cost to finance the secretariat etc.
I disagree. If the remote participation service is high quality, it should
require the same registration fee structure as on-site participation.
Why? Presumably a significant portion of the registration fee goes to
pay the venue for use of its space, for food and beverages, and other
costs that remote participants don't incur.
