However, this gets a bit complex. Even the big streamers can't do this sort of thing. The only ones that do are professional esports presenting teams, and they use specialized software.

Edit: Now that I think about it, what kind of bandwidth would the person acting as the switchboard have to have?

100Mb/s would not be enough for multiple streaming cameras.
But that is easily achieved over LAN.

So if they are doing this as a LAN party it could work? Although, transitioning from one camera to another might look a little funky.

Xsplit sort-of has support for this kind of thing, as does flash media encoder, but the problems are that it is not really fleshed out at all and does not work terribly well on xsplit's end because that part is still in beta, and flash media encoder just plain sucks.

Of course it would probably look like it was recorded with a potato.

The way I see it, either have everyone prerecord their screens and merge as interesting things happen "how yogcast do it for a poor example".
However this is not Live. Live gets far more tricky as you need switching and it is best at LAN. Such as during the Halo4 livestream on youtube that went on for like days, it was just 2 people in the same room, 1 guy controlling the screen switches and camera that is in the room "that shows them".
The setup looked complex and given this was Machinima, you can only imagine the cost for the equipment.
Xsplit is about as close as can get perhaps. Though I am not sure of its limits when it comes to things like this.
Either way, you will need a powerful enough computer to pull this, i7 preferred to handle the massive grinding.
LAN setup if all possible, or some very good bandwidth, 35Mb up and down minimum for the main computer, everyone else of course needs 10mb minimum up and down, 5mb at most.
This is why mass media is a nightmare just to say. Glad I never get involved nor take part in these things, for this reason.
However good luck to ya, as its all dependent on setup and organizing.
