Need IP Camera Recommendation
I am working on a sports video analysis application which will use IP cameras to record up to four concurrent angles of a sporting event to a Windows 8.1 desktop or laptop. The purpose is essentially to create a 360 degree view of a player and use this video footage and the custom analysis tool application for evaluation and training with a coach.
The application is targeted at skill events like golf, tennis, volleyball or baseball which will primarily be held outdoors during the day or in lighted gyms. High resolution and high frame rate are the highest priority for the type of instruction we want to do; however the target market is high schools and clubs, not professional sports and pricing and reliability will also be important.
From what I have read on this site, the Samsung SNB-6004 seems like the best compromise solution; it has HD resolution, lower data rate (than the alternatives in the IPVM camera reviews, important so we can record multiple streams in real time), the 60 fps option and reasonable pricing.
Has anyone implemented a similar application or can make a recommendation on cameras that seem like a better fit? We are all software developers first and foremost and not video experts. I would really appreciate your suggestions before we start buying a bunch of cameras for testing.
