Best camera to drive station latency?

What kind of latency are people seeing from camera to PC?

We’ve tried lots of different approaches - including webcam to roborio, webcam to limelight2+, and even a limelight2+ standalone just to a web browser - and at various different configurations of resolution, fps, etc.
Best we’re getting is in the 200msec range.

I know the limelight for example says around 25 msec from photons to robot, and we haven’t measured that pathway, but in this case it’s the mjpeg encoding and decoding pathway for human interaction that is relevant. I’ve found surprisingly little on this topic - like, how much latency is the decode and rendering adding, etc.

I hear anecdotally of solutions in the 30 msec range from camera to PC screen, is anyone out there actually achieving that?
