I’m desperate. I have to get the input from 4 cameras into vvvv. So far so good. I used to use the PS Eye for that. But now the camera position is about 50 m of Cable away. I couldn’t find any effordable USB Extenders beyond 20 m. Now I thought of using IP Cams, but as I see there’s no easy way to get the images into vvvv.
That wouldn’t be a problem, if I had the money to buy industry cams like the imaging source stuff. But I don’t. I’m on a very low budged.
Easiest way i’ve got 4 inputs into v4, is using a multiplexor (cctv device to quad split 4 PAL inputs into 1 PAL output) and then capture that, you can use a usb analogue capture device. Cameras are just cheap cctv cameras.
I’ve actually done this recently with a 16way multiplexor (you can get them with HDMI outputs too as a DVR)
@DiMiX I got the delock 20 m extensions. They work fine. Sometime I get a signal with 40m, sometimes not. that’s just not safe enough. The problem with PS3 Eye is, that It needs absolutely all of USB 2.0 capacity. A little loss means no signal. Yesterday I ordered 4 cctv-cams, a multiplexor, the hauppauge usb live2 and some cables. I hope it’s gonna work… I’m out of money
