Help me put on a really great webinar for 2000 people.

I'm putting on a webinar for a bunch of Kickstarter backers (around 2000), which content-wise will include a 2 hour lecture and some Q&A. While I have a lot of presentation experience (I've given this particular lecture ~ 6 times as a part of a workshop series I run), I've never done anything online like this before and could use suggestions on how to do this well. I'm particularly interested in recommendations for webinar services that can handle that kind of bandwidth, whether it'd be a good idea to hire staff on that day for video/moderating questions, that kind of thing.

A few details: When I do this lecture in person, I have a Prezi
slide presentation on a projector behind me and I wander around and talk in front of it. I'm guessing that for a webinar, I'll want something similar, maybe even with a few-person audience so I have someone to present this to instead of just a camera.
I'm guessing I'm going to need two video feeds, one on me, and one on my computer screen. Audio is just me. I'm *guessing* it'd be nice to have someone editing the video live, so that the focus goes from me to the slides and back in a sensible way. And I want the whole thing recorded, so that anyone who misses the live feed can download a copy. Thoughts?
