What wireless solutions does the video pod support?

For a future webcast, I have a need to shoot a demonstration of chest x-ray equipment, suturing methods, and other "allied health" related procedures.  A simple webcam is not enough.  I have been looking at wireless camera technologies, and there are myriads (e.g., JVC's line of wifi camcorders).  But what type of wireless solution does Adobe Connect (version 9) support for the video pod?  Or what type of workaround?  And how?  I need to find specifications in order to purchase the right products to do the job. 

I so appreciate your help in finding the right solution.

The better question is what solution does your computer support? The camera should be able to connect to your computer as a video input (as a webcam would be ideal but can be worked around). But be careful of IP or Wifi cameras, as they are not supported in Connect.

I honestly think that you may find a better experience using the Connect Mobile app and using the camera on a smart phone or tablet. Heck, a tablet may prove cheaper than the cost of getting a wireless camera up and running. Just make sure the phone/tablet has a good wifi connection.

No, that was the question I wanted to ask.  I've been hoping that some(one, how, where) would know of a solution that I envision as a portable webcam that sends video, wirelessly, to a type of base station that would connect to a computer with a USB hub.  Alas, there may not be such a species but I can hope.  Logitech came close with the Mac and iOS supported "Broadcaster". 

You're probably right about using the Connect mobile app and a smart phone, and I have been pondering the same solution.  But this would involve equipment my university does not control, and students whom I would, in all candor, not want to rely upon.  But before I close this with yours as the correct answer I'm hoping that someone out there may have the "epiphany" I'm looking for. 

Thanks, though; I value your opinion.

Fair enough. I did a little bit of searching, and I found this, http://amzn.com/B005MPXBBI, It isn't HD, but then again, neither is the video pod in Connnect.

If I run across anything else, I'll post it.

Does the univeristy have any iPads/tablets that you could use? This would take the student hardware factor out of the equation.

Our library does have tablets, but I think that's a little "unwieldy" to repurpose it as a video recording device.  Thanks for the link!  I shall explore.
