We intend to develop a significant and high quality application for iPhones and iPads running iOS 5.1.
The application will stream video from iOS devices (principally iPhone) to a web service. The quality of the video streaming will vary depending on bandwidth available, ranging from high quality to very low frame rates.
At the moment we are looking for an experienced developer to help us do some early technical specification and prototyping work on controlling the camera/video camera prior to a full spec being written. For this early work we suggest an hourly rate is more appropriate than a fixed price as the scope of the work will be subject change during this early phase.
Aesthetics and user interface design are unimportant at this stage. We intend to commission specialists in UI and design once the fundamental technical issues have been addressed. Similarly the communication part of the development is not of direct concern at this stage. Principally we want to understand the controllability and resource consumption of capturing and processing real time video in a range of resolutions and frame rates.
Developers with whom we can strike up good working relationship will be invited to bid for later stages of the work.

Development to be done under signed NDA.
We look for proposals particularly laying out experience in the areas mentioned and any initial thoughts about how you would go about the protoyping.
