What's your input setup?

What are your requirements - are you looking for the capturing part, combining the two videos part, or the streaming part? Depending on what you need, you might be interested in:
* the free
(Win) will take part of your screen or video inputs and mix them to some extent with PiP, titles, lower thirds, etc.
* software like
($200-$2000) can mix multiple video streams, add effects, add virtual sets to green screen, etc. and then stream them out. I use WireCast; works ok, crashes sometimes. We bought some Blackmagic HDMI cards for a PC that we use to capture & stream.
* for a streaming service, you can go free->expensive with services like Ustream, Livestream, and others.

What's the input and application? If it's all for local viewing, maybe a
HDbaseT setup. You could pull the sources into a little linux box, do the PIP and compositing in software and attach it's video output to the HDbaseT feed.
Or use a streaming server, if that's what you want.
