Hi Kirsle,

I did something similar to this a while back ... In Search of a Better Mousetrap.

It uses a capture program called "Fwink" for capturing the images, sends them over a network to a different computer, and lets you watch what's happening remotely.  It has a maximum throughput of 1 image per second (the limit is imposed by Fwink).

Hopefully it can give you some ideas.
