Suggest mac software for video recording in usability lab

I'm working as a research assistant at a Swedish university and we're currently rebuilding our user experience lab. One of the problems we see with the lab is that it's way too complicated to do testing.
We want the process of testing to be as simple as possible. Since we're doing both GUI-tests and other types of tests (for example observations on different types of assembly instructions in manufacturing industry or observation of creative meetings) we need both the possibility to record video from 2-3 different cameras and the possibility to do screen capture (and at the same time in some cases.)
Is there any good mac software for capturing multiple video sources and screen capture out there? The "dream scenario" would be if any of my colleagues easily could get into the lab, start a computer, open the software, create a new project and then press record. I want to reduce the setup time as much as possible.
As it is right now, people hesitate on doing user tests because it's way too complicated.
We have two brand new iMacs to use as lab computers.
