What about private YouTube or Twitch streams from the iPhone to the zoom master and a zoom chat in the background for the golem info?

Something like these should do the trick... Though... IFB back to the Golem, may require headsets and separate Transmitter/Receiver pairs. a simple In-Ear Stage Monitor System should do the trick. You can find some cheep systems around $50 each.

anleon.com/s2-wireless-monitor-system/ 6 Channels, so you can run 6 separate headset systems for 6 golems. the S3 may provide more channels for added golem support. (8 total i think)

For Added cost, there are systems out there that provide full wireless headset capability as well (if you wanted to allow the golem to speak.... but the video camera device microphone should pick up all audio in the room unless muted anyway.

Apple Makes a USB adapter for File Transfering from cameras to iPad. iOS does not support external cameras natively, but apps may bring it in... however I don't know how you would feed that app video to Zoom. There may also be an issue with not being able to power a webcam directly from the iPad, nor use one through a hub with this device.

To Adjust the focus and exposure on iPad:
Before you take a photo, the iPad camera automatically sets the focus and exposure, and face detection balances the exposure across many faces. To manually adjust the focus and exposure, follow these steps:
1. Tap the screen to reveal the automatic focus area and exposure setting.
2. Tap where you want to move the focus area.
3. Next to the focus area, drag the Adjust Exposure button up or down to adjust the exposure.
4. To lock your manual focus and exposure settings for upcoming shots, touch and hold the focus area until you see AE/AF Lock; tap the screen to unlock settings.

At this point it seems like if the above procedure doesn't work, then I would look into other options with Webcams, headsets, and computers. If wireless webcams don't work, then an option would be to set up a monopod with an HDMI capable camera or camcorder attached to a Wireless HDMI system connected to a PC through HDMI streaming hardware (Razer Ripsaw, Elgato Cam-Link) (There may also be Wireless HDMI to USB Streaming options that combine both systems in one) for a similar cost, I think you can get Wireless USB that can extend regular webcams to the computer, but you may have to check for compatibility with some models of cams and what OS you use. When Troubleshooting those streaming video capture devices, always have them plugged directly to the computer, without a hub in line. Also take video at 6MBPS, and Audio at the max bitrate to avoid de-syning and not sound like it's recorded in a tube. That may vary with other hardware.

I've been using Streamlabs OBS along with Voicemeeter Potato software to control the audio interactions of my programs. But to simplify, these Stream devices can be used directly in zoom too.

For the Record, I personally like Sennheizer Mics and Headsets. Cannon Cameras and Camcorders. I have used the two HDMI to USB capture Devices I mentioned with success on live streams using my RTX 2080 Laptop.

I'm not endorsing any wireless system above another because I have not personally used any of the options mentioned yet.

You do get varying degrees of quality and complexity depending on how much budget you can throw at it. I offered up by name the best budget options I could find on short notice. I have seen reviews that Sony Wireless Stage Monitor Earpieces are considered a current standard in professional circles, but they cost on average 6 times as much.

Sorry if someone already said this but you should be able to lock the autofocus on the ipad. If you just focus on an object and then hold your finger on it for a few seconds it should lock focus. I don't have access to ipad at present to test.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

That is with the iOS camera app, but zoom does its own thing (or that’s my undersranting)

My solution: stop building a virtual experience with the mindset of simulating the in person experience as close as possible. Acknowledge it is virtual, lean into those advantages. Use Golem cam if needed for atmosphere on hallways and initial room shots to set ambience, then have the puzzle be brightly lit and have it all comfortably fit on screen without any movement using a stationary camera, or have it just be a PowerPoint slide or all CGI generated or something where you don’t even need a camera. Every puzzle so far could have all been computer images players interact with, switching between a few images or telling the golem to shift item A from one spot on screen to another. Lean into your format and the presentation can feel a lot stronger.
