Charge For Live Feed at a Corporate Event?

Hey Guys,

So I've got a client who is tying down a contract with my production company for their corporate conference where they will have 12 general sessions on a stage with a speaker and a power point presentation for each one. My company will be capturing all 12 of these sessions and everything is solid.

Simple stuff. We've done this for years now.

However, today I received an "oh by the way..." email from my client, all of a sudden asking me if it were possible to "stream a live feed of my camera to the projectors on either side of the stage".

Granted, this isn't much of a problem since I'm shooting with a Panasonic HMC-150, which has outputs for this sort of thing, however, this was never discussed in the original quote.

My question is this:

A) Should charge for this service?

B) And if so, how much I should charge per general session?

Any advice would be much appreciated as we are trying to tie down these contracts in the next coming days.

Thanks in advance, guys!

I get $550 per two-hour session for satellite feed to an auxiliary location, and $350 per two-hour session for same room.

I have a question if you don't nind me asking, how can you pull a profit at that rate? Between renting the SNG truck and operator and blocking two exclusive hours of Ku transponder time I see a loss and a major one at that.
