    We are in the process of installing and setting up the ability to broadcast funerals live from here at the funeral home and also on site at different churches through our website. Does anyone have any advice on hardware that will produce both a good picture and decent streaming? Items needed will be wireless camera(s), wireless USB adapter, wireless USB hub and wireless mic. The camera recommendation we have gotten is a miniDV camera.

    Thanks.

    Match bandwidth of all components. Most streaming video in NTSC format (like television) can use up to 1.54Mbs. That number varies with frame rate, resolution, and image size. Most of that info should come with the camera. Make sure wireless frequency is compatible/matches all components. Check to make sure you won't have interference issues, particularly with common items such as wireless/cordless phones (either 2.4Ghz or 5.8/5.9/6.0Ghz). Many wireless frequencies require line-of-sight. MiniDV cameras typically record onto an SD card or a small CD. Not sure if that's appropriate. I looked on-line for "wireless cameras" and came up with several selections. A search of "wireless miniDV" resulted in a lot of miniaturized spy stuff. I work with outdoor camera surveillance systems and Ethernet wireless. Expensive stuff.
