Suggestions needed

I have an interesting problem (well, not me but I'm trying to solve it). My knowledge in video capture etc is lacking so suggestions would be very welcome.

The situation is this,

I need to record from a camera (computer connected) from a 'trigger' for a short amount of time (10 to 20 seconds), the clip is saved and replayed about 10 seconds afterwards onto a monitor.

The 'trigger' I do have an idea on - I know of a bit of hardware that has inputs and outputs so I could 'trigger' a script/programme/whatever using some visual basic script. But thats just my first (and currently only) idea.

Oh yes, and as usual something that has as little cost as possible ;-), I'm sure I could find some way of thanking anyone who can help.
