    Hi,
    I am looking for suggestions for a setup that could capture the contents of large whiteboard (it is always changing due to schedule changes.) A good resolution, readable picture every 30 minutes or so, accessible over the internet is what needs to happen.
    I have a first gen macbook air that could function as a server. The ideal mounting location is pretty far away so it would be nice to be able to get some optical zoom.
    Could this be done with an old video camera, or a cheap digital point and shoot? If not what webcams should I look at? What software would you suggest?

    Any suggestions appreciated. Thank.
