software and webcams for multicamera video capture?

Hi Everyone,

I'm interested in setting up a series of webcams for a project at work, sort of like a security system, but I wan good video quality close up (small objets at about 2-6 feet away, with an area of 1.5 to 4 foot square. Sort of like if you wanted to capture the activity in a bunch of fish tanks at once.

Any suggestions for software and webcams? I've seen a lot of inexpensive HD usb webcams on amazon. I don't mind paying in the $100/camera range, but if I don't have to then that would be great. Something like these. I do need something that can be at least decent with lower light levels and that doesn't have built in LEDs

one webcam

night vision?

And software like this, though I would prefer mac, it ultimately doesn't matter...

I assume I need something where the webcams hook up to a hub and provide multi-capture. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

For software, I'd look at SecuritySpy.

Support for lots of different cameras.

Also look at Evocam.
It will put multiple cameras on the same screen.
