Stream audio/video to church nursery

We are a small, rural church. We have limited funds, but do hope to serve our nursery workers by streaming our church service via audio and video to the nursery. We want to keep it simple/easy to operate (just turn it on?).

Any suggestions on what kind of set-up we could have? We do have a decent sound board that could (maybe???) send quality audio to the nursery (but, can that be tethered to the video?).

Any suggestions would be helpful.

What kind of camera do you use and what type of video connections does it have? I'm thinking that a basic composite video distribution amplifier (DA) in your sound booth with the composite video coming off your camera and audio from your sound board, then run a 3-wire RCA cable (left and right audio, composite video) to your nursery.

We don't have a camera... that is one thing I would need suggestions on. Again, we're talking simple and cost efficient - the setup would have the camera stationary without a need to zoom or pan. What type of camera would you recommend?

Anything that has a composite output. I'll bet someone in your congregation has an old camcorder in a closet somewhere that would work great.

So then, we could have a camcorder (or any camera that has a composite output), and then follow your instructions from the first post (distribution amplifier in our sound booth with the composite video coming off our camera and audio from our sound board, then run a 3-wire RCA cable to our nursery)?? This would work?

I really appreciate your help, petereit!

Yes. This is how we ran for the first year that we had a camera.
