The DeckLink headers/sdk/libraries can be found at blackmagicdesign.com. 
The last copy I downloaded was 
A more recent version may be available. If you are using this on a 
desktop installation it should be pretty easy to install, but if you are 
installing this on a headless remote server like I do you will have more 
difficulty. Especially if you could not find the SDK to begin with.

What I did to test capture capabilities was use two decklink devices and 
connect them together. To test output, I happen to have an HD-SDI 
capable monitor. Good luck, I've not had any luck with the "official" 
ffmpeg decklink driver.
