VIDEO CAPTURE CARDS

I need a video capture card that will simultaniously stream 5-8 cameras to another computer over a network. I need something that will be able to give me real time or very close.

pablouruguayCommented:
ok. first. you can buy a IEEE with 3 outputs like ZONET. are very useful.
and you can connect many cameras with a analog or digital Switch.

i use CANNON cameras (Digitals) and a Sony standart Digital too. but i have 1 camera analogical and use a Canopus TrasCoder to convert to digital before the IEEE.

Becareful with the processor you need to work fine a 2Ghz or higger !!!

i use a IBM t40 2.6Ghz 1Gb ram and the performance are excelent
