multiple ps3 eye cameras (12-16) + macam + cs mount…??

hello,

i am planning on using a setup of multiple ps3 eye cams for creating a surveillance room for a theatre project.. i will need to connect 12 (or even 16, if possible) cameras simultaneously and then live process the signals…
i am not sure if the ps3 eye + macam would work in this setting… anyone has experience / tips..?

also i am wondering which type of cs lens i should buy for modifying the cameras – so if you have something in mind, please share.
it supposed to be a cheap solution, but also should serve well…

if there are other optimal solutions for this setup out there, i would be happy to hear…!

all help is appreciated,
edit

I suggest you to use analog cameras and compose the image from them using an hardware, than digitalize this frame and send it to jitter,
ps3 eye doesn’t work well with long usb cables.

as the budget is limited, i was looking for a cheaper solution…
though if it is possible with analog cameras and a hardware providing that many identical inputs – i am fine. also a single computer solution would be the optimal…
i will also need to use multiple output (min. 3 projectors), so the hardware should do it or i have a Triplehead in mind…
i took a look at the Blackmagic products, though i am not sure if any of them are fitting this setup…

any recommendations for harware + software setup..?

thanks in forehand
