An open video development board in a PCI express form factor that supports overlaying content on encrypted video signals. Let’s bring open video to the digital age!
Currently, innovation in digital video is severely hampered by the legal restrictions of Section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The NeTV2 is an FPGA-based development board optimized for open digital video applications, and just like any other development board, the access capabilities of the NeTV2 are limited by the law. Relatedly, with the help of the EFF, I’ve filed a lawsuit against the US government to reclaim our rights to innovation and expression with all forms of digital video. As a backer of this campaign, you will not only get a great FPGA development board, you will also be helping to make the case that there is a real demand for the freedoms to innovate and express in digital video.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
