Non-cloud webcam broadcasting software?

I'm looking at rolling my own telepresence system, sort of.

I need a client and server solution that I can extend. For the client side, all it needs to be able to do is take audio and video input from a webcam, and send it to a server over the Internet. And hopefully is smart enough to know about auto-reconnect and such if there's a network hiccup.

On the server side, I need the server to be able to receive multiple webcam streams, and then rebroadcast them. Or something that'll take one webcam stream from a non-local source and rebroadcast it, and could run multiple instances of the app on the same system. Many-in, many-out. Most likely an individual stream for each cam (that I could then tile and resize as desired in a web page or something.) None of the webcams will be locally attached to the server that is going to be sending out the webcam streams.

Anyone know of software that can do this?

I can't even really find webcam server software that will accept a stream from a remote machine for rebroadcast - most of it assumes either you're going to be rebroadcasting via a third party cloud service (Stickam, Ustream, etc.) or you want the server to be right on the same system the webcam is physically attached to.

I have no particular preference for the format, etc. of streaming. Windows-based would be my preference, I'm not really that interested in learning Linux and I hear it has enough trouble doing AV related stuff anyway.
