For PoC: Hardware alternative recommendation

Hi,

I was learning about endoscopy and learned about the OmniVision company which provides the camera and its dedicated image processor and a Wi-Fi board.

I talk with them about the exact working and implementation of their camera, processor unit, and Wi-Fi board but they refused to say.

So I assumed that:
Their OV6946 camera sensor:https://www.ovt.com/download/sensorpdf/ ... OV6946.pdf should be connected to OH0117 ISP(Image Signal Processor): https://www.ovt.com/download/partpdf/45 ... OH0117.pdf and then the feed would be transmitted through Wi-Fi using OH0137/OH0138 Wi-Fi board: https://www.ovt.com/download/partpdf/5 ... OH0137.pdf. Then we can see the feed live by connecting Mobile to it through their dedicated app.

I had created a WAP in Raspberry PI 4 and streamed live camera(Webcam) feed on its IP and with a custom mobile app I have created I saw the feed.

Now What I want is to create a PoC just like the above-said method but using an analog camera to generate analog videoss, an ADC to convert analog video to digital and Raspberry PI(or something to stream the video feed over Wi-Fi and which has the functionality to be created as WAP as well) and transfer feed to Raspberry PI board or any via USB. Please recommend and guide what hardware would be best to use and how to create this?

What exactly do you mean by "analog camera"?

What I meant what analog video output camera.

I have searched about composite video streaming from Raspberry Pi and what I got was BNC video output from a CCTV type analog camera and connect it to Pi-capture or a BNC to usb converter. Same was for RCA. Some suggested to make raspberry pi a DVR and on the RaspberryPi exchange thread. But the person who answered it said it is not permissible to use Raspberry pi like this and it cannot process that much video.

Will Pi-camera be a good alternative for this PoC?

And also most of the analog video output camera were like CCTV big and what I want is a small simple like camera like webcam or something.
