for 2014 I create a script that would nicely create the video overlays
- a simple yaml file for basic lay outing
- - font / color / corner
- - name of the event
- - location of the logo
- an export of the talks

only thing you needed to do was montage

i stopped developing, for the next step would be more complicated .... animated texts etc.
