I've put some thought into such a thing, there are products that try to 
meet this market but none of the product I've looked at seemed very good 
and they are all on the hideously expensive end of the scale.  I have a 
few ideas on building something like this but I don't have any pressing 
need for it at the moment.

Wireless video is still not commonly not done due to bandwidth required.

Something like the AudioControl set of products let you run sound and 
video over RJ45 cable, handy if you have that in your house already.
