Question

WIFI Camcorders - Multiple and Broadcast

Hi All

PLEASE HELP ME

I am an athletics coach and I want to place Cameras (4 or 5) that are WIFI and broadcast to a Laptop/Ipad

GoPro doesnt do it as apparently they create their own wifi network and although you can turn on multiple cameras with one remote control simultaneously but thats it. You cant have them all broadcast.

Do any camcorders connect to a WIFI network so I I was to place a wireless hub and create a peer to peer network could I acheive this ?

Do all camcorders use the same pretty short range wifi or are some way better than others ?

Please help me as I really want to crack this

Many Thanks

Seem to remember it was asked before.

Are you asking again? If so, did it get sorted last time?

So far, that system is not off the shelf.

Someday maybe for now I've only seen folk cheat and get one ipad per camera. I'm not writing it's not possible but for consumer grade systems this would result in far too much support needed. That is, let's say I put a 6 camera WiFi in a box. The setup would be torture for most folk plus you have WiFi issues about distance, channel overlap and more.

Time to put out a RFQ for your system.

PS. Time to ask those that make systems.
http://www.echo1612.com/ for example. You can google for more like them and call them till they tell you have or have not what you want.

I like that web link since it shows in graphic detail why WiFi is a bad idea. I can add more why you don't want WiFi for the link but I find most folk don't believe it until they field it and then discover it's not reliable.
