  1. People…. Tedx is independently organised by local communities. Of course video and audio quality is going to vary GREATLY depending on the location. I would almost guarantee that the team capturing the event is volunteer and therefore most likely fairly untrained. 99% of the time people only care that you have touched a camera or microphone at least once in your life for them to ask you to video/record events for them. "Billy has a camera, why can't he just film it for us?" Because Billy is 10 and hasn't had the necessary experience to do a good job. Its the same with many professional industries, money saved > quality. Trained, professional technicians would cost additional money, most of which is likely being used to primarily account for the speaker. I am also confounded by how important stereo sound is to people. This isn't a feature film with a dynamic range of frequencies and beautifully mixed dialog and score, its a Tedx talk. If you don't have the mental capacities to handle a mono signal why are you even watching (supposedly highly intellectual) videos like Ted talks??
