For Ubuntu 11.04

I need an application that will monitor and record 4 CCTV cameras w/sound. Need playback of the recorded activity with timestamp. It should be able to control zoom and camera angle via joystick or mouse. It would be nice to have it stream live feed over ssh too.
Minimal resources available.
