Hi all

Really like OpenCV and admire what is possible. For start, would like to make make simple split screen (vertical split) from two usb cameras. I have old 16:9 monitor, rpi 3 and two usb cameras which i would like to use to begin with OpenCV. For start, would like to have them merged and full screened on Raspberry Pi which is connected to monitor.

I understand there is so much surveillance software but i want to keep it live view, no recording, and to have it start as fast as possible when i click icon on raspberry,

I hope RPi 3 is strong enough, if not maybe go Intel NUC route. I'm hoping for 5-10fps at 720p resolution, hope it is doable on RPi. Maybe get RPi4? :)

can your raspi even handle decoding 2 camera streams ?

RU shore you need OpenCV just for grabbing cameras and melding pics side by side? What language are you using in?

Well, found OpenCV and looks capable, maybe too capable but lets start with this :) I hope to acomplish this and later maybe take it to another level.

Language, see that python is capable to make this work, have some minor expirience with it...
