I would go for Viewcast if you want automated solutions. Black Magic has
the name, but connecting to opensource products like VLC/FFMpeg Viewcast is
a much better deal. Also their support is much better. Linux and capturing
analogue (V4Linux) is still very trick or only PAL (25fps). There seem to
be some Linux drivers out there for some type of Viewcast cards. Haven't
found the time to try them out. :(
