In particular I am interested in low-level simple video-to-memory and memory-to-video APIs. I can deal with QT/DS if necessary, but I would prefer a simple memory-only API as close to read() and write() as possible but still maintaining some support for A/V sync. 8-bit 4:2:2 Y'Cbcr I/O would be ok, RGB might be nice in the case of SD.
Any modern developer program info would be appreciated.
I've also signed up for the bmd-developer mailing list and am awaiting access to that list.
The card is PCIe Gen 1 and does not support simultaneous capture and playback but you can workaround that by using 2 cards which is supported via the API and driver.
If you go to our software downloads page in the URL below and scroll right to the bottom of the page where the SDKs are located, you can download the documentation and have a read. We do have a non QT/DS API that you can use.
