A New HOPE (2022): "Cast-Away: A DIY Platform for Video Capture, Automation, and Various Antics" (Download)
Sunday, July 24, 2022: 12:00 pm (DAC 206): Inspired by existing projects (and some cable company shenanigans), this venture seeks to develop a few tools to assist in the capture and analysis of analog recorded and digital broadcast video sources. Currently dubbed Cast-Away, the system is designed to provide remote monitoring of live video, a bit of computer vision, and to reduce a few headaches involved with elder media through automation. Utilizing available off-the-shelf parts, the goal is to provide a low-cost and accessible solution that can also be a useful starting point for others to build on. This effort is a work in progress.
