Let me preface this with the fact I am somewhat new at this and an amateur at that. But I have done a few videos for my company (my real job is programming) that have been met with critical (from our management at least) aclaim.
There is a product out there called Ultra2 from Serious Magic (http://www.seriousmagic.com/products/ultra/index.cfm)that may do the trick for you – Just video the "talking heads" in front of a green screen, then use Ultra2 to chromakey them into some amazing virtual sets. The package has some very nice sets and they also provide the masks so you can make your subject look like they are really there.
It may be pricey but if you can boost sales, that might make up for the extra cost.
