    What is a good video monitoring system for visual contact from the vocal booth into the control room?

    I wonder if there is something that would work using the local network rather than leaving to the internet like Skype.

    Anyway what I use is a webcam and TV or a second monitor. Then I use a USB extender and HDMI over Ethernet. That way I can put the session on the screen too since some guys like seeing that for timing.

    there are some cheap wifi security camera solutions on the market nowadays.

    DropCam is one of the most popular:

    Good one. I was busting my balls over this quite a few times seeing as there is a substantial amount of CCTV camera models out there.

    I have a dropcam. It would work, just know that there is a significant delay. I prefer it for what it was made for (home security and letting the wife drop in on our kid and see her playing).

    That's why I went baby monitor instead, there isn't much of a discernible delay.
