Webcam program?

Now I could be mistaken, but I thought I saw a program a few months ago that allowed you to hook up a surveillance camera to your PC and use it as a webcam, Am I going nuts or does something like this really exist?

griffelkin2002,

If the camera has an NTSC output which is the type of signal that can be put through a standard VCR or television set you will need an interface to hook it up to a computer.
If it has a USB output then you can use a webcam program for simple observing or to snap a motion sensed picture.
