I have one camera/one capture card. I have only one client to be connected, but I have several different comms channels to connect with (1. 54MB radios, 2. Cellular modem, 3. Satt modem). And I also need to display the best possible picture on the server computer.
Is there a way to send the single video source to 4 profiles, so I could select on the client which profile to use depending on which comms are available? (1 would be uncompressed for the local server, 2 would be high bandwidth radio, 3 would be medium bandwidth for cellular, and 4 would be low bandwidth for satt).
By the way, I have to use the C# sample code to write my own viewer package because of camera controlling features. I can't use the stand-alone viewer program.

No, there is no way to use a single video source in multiple profiles.

The reason being - the hardware can only provide a particular frame rate/frame size at a time; for example, there is absolutely no way to get 320x240 and 640x480 frames at the same time.

The common solution is a hardware splitter - split video signal to multiple capture cards/channels.
