Camera direct to projector

Hello,
I am going to need to set up two small (cheap) webcams/security cameras that will connect directly to projectors, so that real-time video is projected. I wondered if anyone has any ideas about suitable cameras (they don't need to be amazing quality) and connectors that would best suit this application. The projectors are Canon WX6010 so have several input options. I'm thinking a camera with BNC/SDI output going through a black magic SDI-HDMI converter, then into the projector. Might this set up work?
Any thoughts would be very much appreciated as I'm not an AV specialist!

A bit more info on what you are trying to achieve would be good - day/night/indoor/outdoor/fixed/pan&tilt/cable run length/local power....

No problem:

It'll be daytime.
Indoors, with localised spotlights on the areas that the cameras will be pointed at, but the areas with projectors will be moderately dark/dim. Please note, the image quality does not have to be pin-sharp!
Fixed cameras would be locked into position, focused on the spotlit areas.
Cable runs would be up to 8 metres max.
Normal mains power, 240v sockets.

It's for an art gallery installation.
Many thanks.

I'd give a CCTV system a go - would be relatively low cost and if the image is suitable should be an easy enough setup to install and leave alone.

Many thanks Joe, do you think that the setup I mentioned, going through an SDI to HDMI converter would work OK? I'm just worried that the output of a security camera might only work with its intended video system...

You could go with a CCTV camera with HDMI Out direct to your Projector - look at HIKvision they have options.
