i need a cheap video camera compatible with jitter on mac os x that can be placed in a room separate from the computer. the cable length would be around 20m, so USB and firewire are not possible without expensive repeaters etc. as i understand, there are two options: wireless, so i'd have the receiver in the other room (the actually the "direct" distance between camera + receiver would be really small, like a few meters, but there is a massive wall between them); i saw some models but none of them had a receiver that would output the video signal as USB or firewire. the other option i guess is an IP network camera over ethernet, some models are really cheap like 100 EUR. but then how do i receive the images in jitter? as far as i understand, the pictures are streamed via HTTP (?) as MPEG-4 or similar streams. is there any model that's mac compatible and whose images i can get into jitter? i don't need fast frame rates, i guess a few frames per second are sufficient.
thanks for hints. ciao, -sciss-
