Morning Announcements on the Smartboard

Hi! Our school has classrooms that are equiped with SmartBoards and data projectors. A co-worker and I would love to start a morning announcement via video rather than just through our speaker (audio) system. We have cameras, but need to know what interface we need to use to be able to feed the video into the classrooms.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Skype is the first thing I think of, but you have to pay for the service and you can only have ten people at a time. I see on Google that ooVoo lets you chat with up to 12 people for free. Maybe some more searching might find what you need.

we are a middle school. every morning, very early, our tech guy does a video of students doing the news, morning announcements, pledge etc via video camera. This is then converted to Windows Media and placed on our schools network around 8:15. The teachers then use the smartboard to watch the news around 8:30. This is obviously not live, but every class does get the same news every morning.
