There do exist quality cameras that connect locally to a server that you
control, but they use RTMP, which is an obsolescent protocol, running over
TCP, and that cannot easily be extended to handle modern codecs.

If I understand Alexandre correctly, he's building an RTMP-to-Galène
gateway.  Such a gateway should work with off-the-shelf cameras, or at
least should be easy to tweak so that it works with them.

In the longer term, we should work on replacing RTMP with a modern
protocol.  That's what the WISH working group is chartered to do at the
IETF, and, given the competent people I've seen participating, I have at
least some hope that they'll be able to deliver.

In the short term, let's work with Alexandre on getting OBS to
interoperate with Galène.  Once that's done, we'll see what we can do
about off-the-shelf hardware.
