This makes it sound to me like it is more event-based than it is 
format-based. Are you including recorded conference proceedings and TED 
talks, that have a mix of slides and recording of the live event? I 
originally thought you were focused on the slides themselves. Now your 
proposal seems to be recorded "performances" - basically, today's 
version of conference proceedings.
