For a more complex project I need to process the video input of 8 to 12 cameras at the same time on a single computer but each with a rather low resolution (probably 480p). Those cameras could either be simple USB cameras or ones with analogue output so some converter is required.
The actual processing should happen through a self written program in C++.
The focus is on low cost for the setup (without the computer) and if possible, low latency as well.
So far I thought to use simple, cheap USB consumer webcams. Would that be the best way?
There are all kinds of camera modules Alibaba and similar shops like this one: http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-Falcon-250-13-CMOS-700TVL-110-Degree-FPV-Camera-p-1040713.html However, I couldn't find a proper way to connect multiple of them to a PC to process the analogue signal digitally.
Huge thanks in advance!
