I'm wanting to put a camera above or near my table (as long as complete table is in view) and have live feed to my tv on the wall along with dvr playback for later viewing. What would you suggest?

My porpoise is to watch and review games, drills etc, so maybe 4-6hrs of dvr time????

You can place your camera at a nominal place to record your playing... You can also place the camera at a location, where you can record Drills and/or position play,.

There are software programs that will allow you you replay these events, in slow motion, for learning purposes. .

Buy a security "pencil" camera that has a wide angle lens but does not distort too much.

The higher up you can place the camera the less of a wide angle you will need, the less distortion.

I wish I knew of a chart that showed:

The distance needed to see the length of a pool table with a lens.
Angle of lens = 12' of View at 48" distance.

Then you could mount the camera on the edge of your light, down towards the table.
Ideally it would be best if the camera could be mounted on top of the light and could look down thru a hole in the top.
"Pencil" cameras would be perfect for both applications.

The "perfect" setup ($$$$$) would be four cameras for a view of the players and the overhead camera for the table view.
Record all five, then edit and use what you need.

When we attend tournament, our table light has a camera mounted in it for viewing the stroke. We have 4 lights total, front, side, back & top. In slow motion, everything shows up.

Wireless cameras tend to drop frames in video playback. A better solution might be to use a wired video camera (https://www.amazon.ca/Logitech-Stream-Webcam-Streaming-960-001176/dp/B01LXCDPPK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1502385211&sr=8-2&keywords=logitech+c920) connected to a laptop. If you wanted to stream that online with chat you could use OBS Studio (https://obsproject.com/download) and send it to Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/).

Alternatively, a GoPro with a power cord attached can capture right onto an SDHC card in 4K or 1080p and you can grab the footage after for editing. I suggest the power cord simply due to not having to worry about battery life and in a GoPro the save is the last function so if the battery dies in the middle of a 3-hour filming run, you get nothing as the camera dies before the file is saved.
