As a journalist I do sometimes interview people with Skype and then record the other persons appearance on his webcam. This works, but the quality is not very good. What are my options to connect a camera that is better then a webcam to Skype (or any other service) and get a high quality images to my side?

So I am not talking about broadcasting. This is meant to be a one to one connection.

not exactly cheap- but, I'm not sure you are going to be able to do this well anyway unless you were to buy an high quality camera and then mail it to each person that you interview... otherwise no matter what you do you will simply have to continually rely on the shoddy equipment and connections of others.
