We want to install HD IP cameras in our classrooms to record lectures and make them available online.

Any recommendations?

Room size: large classroom seating about 70 students

Camera specs required: Audio/in for wireless microphone, 1080p, data transfer over ethernet.

Thank you for the recommendation. Not sure if a Webcam would be suitable... distance and data transfer come to mind. It will be installed on the ceiling/wall of a large classroom a bit away from the lecturer. Also need to have audio in for lecturers microphone. – zimmy Nov 6 '12 at 0:15
@Tom I updated my answer with a link to a more professional oriented package. – K3N Nov 6 '12 at 0:24
That is a professional package... one of many that I have looked at and the price is accordingly high. I'd rather focus on just a camera at the moment. – zimmy Nov 6 '12 at 0:43
