Interesting. In the sessions I attended I noticed several times where the 
microphones were replaced continuously by the local crew even during the 
session, presumably to make sure they were all charged all the time. This 
worked very well, and even though I attended sessions all slots apart from 
2, I didn't see any in-room A/V problems related to microphones.

All problems I saw seemed to remotely participating people having problems 
with their Internet connection and/or their local A/V equipment. This is 
nothing new though, I see this all the time, mostly with people not used 
to remote working.
