I have been researching an option for a 4 camera recording setup using one raspi. I know it is not possible to do in a simple, straightforward way.
However, I wonder if it would be possible to have the four cameras attached to one RPI using a multicamera module, and then have the RPI switch between the four cameras as fast as possible (so only one camera is active at a time), take a picture with each, and then have a script that stitching the images from each camera together making a low-frame-rate video of sorts for each camera? I need this setup to be able to run for an hour or two at a time - this is to consider the amount of data I will have to store at the end.
This is the hardware I have:
This is where I got the idea for the setup:
So, would this setup be possible, and would I be able to store the data directly on a laptop as whole video files for each camera?
Thanks in advance!
