We are a group of professional C/C++ developers with over ten years development experience in both business and gaming applications.

As low cost as you might want it, what you're asking for potentially requires a rather significant framework of high availability, high speed communication and web servers. Also, there are aspects that need to be defined, such as where video images and supplemental information will be hosted.

We can develop this client-side application, but the back end server framework is a much bigger undertaking than the client. In any event, we cannot meet the maximum bid price you're stating. We can provide a detailed proposal specifying the framework necessary, associated costs for development and (if interested) hosting, and price the client and server applications separetely.

For the record, we'd develop the application in C++. The servers would be Windows servers running either IIS with extensions or a proprietary communication software, most probably written in C++ as well.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Tnx & Rgds...
