It’s been a lot of work, but I’m really excited to announce the launch
of the NeTV2 crowdfunding campaign. Please help me reform Section 1201
of the DMCA and bring open video into the digital age by backing the
campaign and spreading the word!

It takes a village to mass produce hardware: J.A.R.V.I.S. is fiction, gritty
factories are reality. Back this tier so I can pour a pint for all the
unsung heroes who mill the steel, mind the machines, pack the boxes and
manage the supply chain to create the miracle of a product arriving at

Add this to your order and get an EFF Multisticker Sheet. The stickers
are purchased full-price from the EFF and bundled into your order, so
this is a convenient way to help support the EFF's broader efforts
while also supporting this campaign. If you believe in the need to
reform Section 1201 but video isn't your thing, please also consider
donating directly to the EFF!

For developers and users who want to skip the screwdrivers and go
straight to a SSH prompt. The Quickstart Package is a turnkey solution for
open video, optimized for video overlay. It's an NeTV2 dev board
bundled with a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, 8 GiB SD card with pre-loaded base
firmware package, power supply, and our custom HDMI Flex Jumper, all
assembled into a case and fully tested. Ready for you to SSH in and
load your application code! Back now - post-campaign pricing goes up
by $25! Version with large FPGA only available during the campaign.
All the plastic parts necessary to protect and mount your NeTV2 dev
board: case top and bottom, front bezel, light pipes, standoffs, and
screws. If you plan to mate this with your own Raspberry Pi as a video
source, you'll also want to get the Custom HDMI Flex Jumper.

Even the shortest HDMI cables don't quite fit inside the NeTV2 case,
so we built a custom flexible PCB that provides impedance-controlled
differential pairs to bridge between the Raspberry Pi overlay video
source and the NeTV2 open video dev board. Make sure to select the
correct FPGA image when using this cable, as it leverages the
pinout flexibility of the FPGA to optimize signale routing.

Backers of this tier get a 25mm space to engrave their name (or
pseudonym) in a 10-point open licensed font inside the case. The names
will be engraved in the mounting-boss-free area underneath the NeTV2
There's an array of cooling holes on the bottom side of the case. But
when I look at a 24 x 8 array of dots, I don't see cooling holes. I
see 24 bytes (192 bits) that could be used to code a message. Here's
an opportunity for one backer to code something that will be milled
into hardened tooling steel and stamped into many plastic cases. Final
design must have enough holes for sufficient air flow.
Looking to retrofit a set of existing video displays in your office,
restaraunt, or store? Get this campaign-exclusive 10-pack deal. It's a
bundle of 10 Quickstart Packages. The hardware is fully assembled and
tested, so you just have to just SSH in, configure your application,
and you're in business.
