NVIDIA already sells their highend Quadro SDI line which is officially supported for use on Linux systems. So knowing this why is there a delay with supporting VIVO for their authorized resellers (ie: MSI, BFG, etc). If it's an issue with vendors using different video capture chipsets then either have their vendors standardize or NVIDIA should release their own Geforce graphics card which supports VIVO on Linux. As for the latter I'd be happy to purchase a NVIDIA made Geforce 7900 graphics card that offers VIVO not only for desktop systems but also for highend laptops such as Dell's Inspiron XPS M1710 or Precision M90.
