Default HD Webcam advise for Video Conferencing

Hey guys, looking for some webcam advise for video streaming:

I want to do some video conf on two 54" plasma's. Both plasmas have HTPC's (one is atom based, dual core, the other). both connection speeds are at 25down/3Mb up.

Price range - Not more than 125 CAD each (hoping to get something in the 60-85 buck range, but will spend more to get high quality video over skpe/IM). Also, I havent found any hardware decoding webcams yet? where are they?

Both plasma are in family rooms, with large space and both the viewee/viewer will be at least 8 ft back from webcam/mic.

I hope a few members can share thoughts and/or experiences?

thanks
S

I recommend using a digital video camera if you want good image quality. It'll probably cost you more, but it serves dual purpose.

Most cameras now can be tethered to a computer by a digital cable and live stream.
