webcam recommendations

Hi folks,

I'm working on a project to deploy a live webcam to a popular seaside (urban) tourist precinct.  I need to be able to embed the video output into a page of a web site that is independent to the webcam.

The camera will be deployed in an outdoor location, so will require some kind of weatherproof enclosure, and ideally it should be programmable to follow a defined pan/tilt/zoom 'track' (hope that makes sense!)

Also, since the structure this unit will probably be deployed is not a building, a wireless network interface would be ideal.

Any recommendations for products that would suit this application?

Thanks and regards,  Mike.

I would suggest a wireless PTZ security camera designed for outdoor use.  You can find some PTZ cameras here http://www.brickhousesecurity.com/pan-tilt-zoom-network-cameras.html, but the combination of wireless, outdoor, and PTZ may be too difficult or expensive.  Perhaps an indoor version with a separate polcarbonate enclosure will work.
