The standard media production should be planned in regional budgets. At
least we have money for it in the EMEA budget.

We don't have money for special media for particular events. That's
something we may be able to cover from reserves (if we have any :) ).
There is also a practical problem with production. The vendor we're
using doesn't even produce pressed DVDs in quantities under 1000 and
burnt DVDs are pretty expensive (up to $1.5 per DVD). DVD production in
small quantities is expensive.
