Video Feed>Laptop>Virtual DJ>Projector

Hey, everyone!

This might sound very convoluted but I'll try to keep this as simple as possible. I'm doing a shoot for a Rave and I have a rear projection setup to show music videos. The DJ has a way to run the videos through his program (Virtual DJ) and then send that to the projector. I was wondering if anyone knows a way that I can send a live feed from my Canon 5D to his laptop so he can put shots of the crowd up on the screen.

Does anyone have any experience with VDJ? I've been doing research for the greater half of the morning and I simply can't find what I'm looking for.

If this isn't feasible, what would be another program that I could use to easily switch between my shots and whatever the DJ wants to put up on the screen?

Also, the last question, my idea is to go through the crowd with the camera so I think that having a wireless feed would be best. If not, I'll just lock down on a dolly and move back and forth between the security line and run an SDI to the DJs laptop. What do you think would be the best? If wireless, can you point me in the direction of what I should be researching specifically?
