Webcam for visual communication in studio

We're building a small studio and the control room and live room are NOT going to have a window coupling them for visual communication.

I'm looking into solutions with a surveillance camera or HD webcam to video monitors in each room.

Right now I would settle for a camera in the live room feeding 1 side of my dual monitor setup that I can just run off the computer.

What kind of clever solutions have you all come up with? Like which software for the monitoring window side of things?

Here for the gear

I tried this many different ways. Both analog and digital cameras. It worked for some visual cues like to motion when the bridge is coming up but to try and follow another musician visually just didn't work. There is always a small amount of delay that I could not get rid of. Maybe some high end broadcast equipment could do it quick enough. I really didn't want to build a window. I fought it for years but then when I built my new studio I sucked it up and put in two windows. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be just use two pieces of think glass at slightly different angles. Call a window installer. Most will do custom installs for less than you think.
