Hello. I have a slightly different use case for my cameras than security.

I have a digital signage company and I am looking to show video replay on a TV screen. I would like to utilize IP cameras to do this and would appreciate any insight and guidance you can provide!

On the TV an HTML presentation will be playing. When a command button is pushed it can switch screens to show a local URL stream. This is all done through the LAN. What I am looking to accomplish from the IP cameras is a couple of things.

1) Provide a HTTP Live stream URL that can be utilized in my presentation
2) Delay the video by 30 seconds. What I want to show on the screen is the previous 30 seconds of video.

What I am looking for is:

1) Hardware recommendations. The facility is in a well-lit facility. We are able to run cables without a problem. We are looking at putting 2 to 5 cameras.

2) Software recommendations. I was looking at Blue Iris but we do want 1080p video which it seems to downgrade.

Let me know if you can help me out and if this is the correct forum to post this question!

Thanks :)
