First, getting video from an external camera - like a security camera or helmet cam (lens portion only) assumes the video recording device allows "AV-in". There are no JVC hard disc drive or flash memory consumer camcorder with AV-in.

My camcorder has an a/v jack I do not know if it is out or in, the vehicle will be stopped I just want to record from three angles.
I like the idea of three camaras then doing the software magic from there
Thanks for the info, it gives me more to think about

offroad video is captured today include separate video cams with later video editing, mounting a security DVR in the vehicle's trunk in a vibration-isolated mounting system - and the vehicle provides power to the DVR and the cameras... or using wireless equipment from companies like Titan to transmit the wireless video and audio to the control room where the recording device is located.

I like the wireless option, the camaras and equipment will be in a van, one camera to be operated and two to be fixed (No pan tilt or autofocus). The equipment would be mounted for cycle rallys, motocross racing, snowmobile raceing ect. the van would not participate, I hate digging it out of the mud or snow. One looking out the front window and one out the rear window and one to track the event as it goes by.
To be very honest I want to impress my boss who thinks a camera should have a screw in light bulb (he still uses a polaroid).
Thanks and cheers.
