The blackmagics from my understanding still require proprietary drivers and
work only with specific kernels and distros. Not great IMO.

These devices are a bit dearer, but are USB + UVC (Video 4 Linux)
compatible, so should "Just Work":


As for the hack days, there have been some scheduling issues among the AV
team. We'll be in touch with a plan soon.


DRM 'manages access' in the same way that jail 'manages freedom.'

# cat /dev/mem | strings | grep -i cats
Damn, my RAM is full of cats... MEOW!!
