While I'm not available, anyone answering will probably need
more information, like the spec (which I think is here:
but also what features you need immediately (the teletext
and boxing support for example I would guess might take
as much effort as the whole rest of the format).
Also, whether you find a suitable offer or not, it would be
of great help if you could make samples available (if you
can find any where you can get the ok to make available
With such special formats regression testing is fairly
important, but cannot be done without public samples.

Good luck :) ,
