well heres what my end goal is:

im going to set up maybe ten cameras on a stage during a concert.

i want to display the camera angles live feed using the two projectors.

im assuming the bullet cameras are cheaper because i will be using the pc as a DVR instead of ten individual cams.

from running sound, i assume the bullet cams will feed into a interface that has video outs that can be controlled by the pc?

Bullet Cams>>>Interface>>>PC>>>Interface>>>Projectors

am i even close on this one?

i am trying to figure out what i need to accomplish my goal but since i have such little experience in AV,so my questions are:

-what are the best cams for this app?

-does such an interface exist?

-can i control the the different projectors in real time with a pc?



end result,i want to have many cameras set up and be able to switch whats being played on the different projectors in realtime.

Hmm not sure there are any PC based Vision mixers that can accommodate 10 cameras at the same time.

This situation would require a dedicated hardware solution eg:

This would allow you to switch between the different cameras and route their signals to the projectors - also to apply simple effects.

You might be able to find a cheaper solution on ebay.

But a 10 camera multi-cam rig could get expensive to do properly as the most the more affordable vision mixers (switchers) only have 4 or 5 inputs - and the larger ones cost more and require genlock. That said you can do a lot with only 4 cameras if you have good camera operators giving a nice range of shots.
