This is a updated post for the original that I submitted earlier (http://slashdot.org/submission/1261912/Bluecherry-releases-its-MPEG-4-driver-GPL). I believed I followed this FAQ post correctly by submitting a new story and not emailing the correction: http://slashdot.org/faq/editorial.shtml#ed100. This update contains some grammar / pronunciation mistakes and also URL links. It also clears up a bit of the language about the card and intended applications. Feel free to delete this line.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today Bluecherry released a GPLed driver for its multiple-input MPEG-4 hardware compression cards. The driver supports audio and video capture from 4, 8, and 16-channel single-card encoders using the Video4Linux and ALSA APIs.

More information about the driver and its features can be found on Bluecherry's development blog and on Ben Collins' personal blog.

Bluecherry is the first Linux software company to release a complete driver based on Linux kernel APIs (Video4Linux and ALSA) for multiple-input hardware-compressed MPEG-4 capture cards under the GPL.

The cards are designed for security applications (Digital Video Recording); however, other applications could potentially make use of the compressed streams and Video4Linux API integration. An H.264 version is 'in the works'."
