Default Need a device that will stream video on my network

Hi guys,

I've been having a lot of trouble finding a product that will do what I need to do. Let me describe my situation.

We have 3 microscopes here in the office. They have a video feed coming from them that can be either s-video or RCA.

What I need to do is be able to view the video stream on my network from multiple computers. Both doctors want to be able to have the video streams on their computers in their offices, for example they would have 3 windows open on their 2nd monitors, and each window would be a separate stream. They also want a computer on the network to be able to be continually logged into the streams to record them.

I purchased 3 HAVA players but they didn't work very well. You could only have one hava device on the network or else they would all conflict. There were some other issues with it too.

I thought a slingbox might work well, but I called them up and they said that you can have multiple slingboxes on the network no problem. However you can't have multiple people viewing the streams at once, so if one doctor is looking at a stream, then the other can't. Also, you cannot have multiple windows open on your computer at once, so instead of having 3 windows open on your second monitor showing all the streams, you would only be able to have one open and you'd have to swich between slingboxes to view the different streams. This would also make these things pretty useless for recording.


So those two devices are out. I don't know why this is so hard to find a device that'll do this. We have a bunch of webcams all over the office that do all this, but finding a device that will hook into an analog video stream seems to be a pretty difficult thing.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate them.

What price point are you shooting for? Most of the ViewCast products can do this, but they aren't cheap (compared to the options you mentioned looking into already.)

I have a Ruckus that streams video. They come in a set of 2 and they are access points that will do HD TV.
