"Use it for the future"; alright then. Since that actually sounds like a good idea and you clearly will not let others drag your dreams and ideas down (that is impressive), I'll pitch in here.
1. 9 hole card cameras (if you can focus a pinhole camera, that would be cheap and should work).
2. One computer and a (freeware?) program capable of displaying all 9 camera feeds at once on a monitor.
3. One legit poker table, modified for those cameras.
4. 4 (maybe 3, yet 5 would be better) stationary cameras around the table doing a constant recording of the action.
5. Another computer to capture all that and display the camera feeds/record it all.
6. Microphones for every player/recording ability.
7. Program capable of taking video and laying it out frame by frame for modification
8. Program capable of cutting sound tracks in the same way.
Now, while recording the action and the hands, have another guy making a sound only recording (same length of time as the game) while watching the hole cams and simply calling out what hand number it is and exactly each players hole cards they get. You can later listen to this guy to know who had what cards at what times (to later overlay graphics into the video); Note: this is a soundtrack you later dump; it's for coordination purposes only.
After it's all in and done, you go back and decide which video feeds to
splice and dice into a complete video; you will have to run the recordings from all the table cameras (not the hole cams, the table action cams) at once across one monitor (stacked atop each other) to decide what gets spliced and where. You overlay the soundtrack of the players during the game into that final video you cut and spliced together.
Once you have that, you go back and frame-by-frame, insert the graphics into every frame. Example; if recording at 30 frames per second, and you want to display the graphics with hand info for 20 seconds, you simply copy and paste it into 600 frames, starting where you want and ending where you want.
After you have the video of the players and the soundtrack of just their banter, you have a commentator review the video and audio and create a soundtrack of him commenting on the video he is watching. People will assume he is actually watching the real game and remarking on it at the same time, yet it need not be this way. The reason you do it like this is to make sure his voice is "over" that of the players, so you are (at this point) making a final soundtrack to overlay into the video.
You can use a freeware program such as "paint.net" to create the graphic jpegs to overlay into the video. You can use freeware for video and audio splicing.
Once you put it all together, it should pass as a reasonable facsimile of a "real" TV poker game
. I'll tell you right now you biggest hurdle will be sound. Watch an episode of the Heartland Poker Tour and then the WPT to hear what I mean.
