Please define "pre recorded video feed". If it's on a hardware recorder (e.g. DV/DVC
) you need a respective hardware interface, usually a normal or high-speed Firewire interface. If it's a file on the harddisk in your computer then you don't need any special hardware, any computer built in the last ten years is sufficient.
Everything you need for video processing are some array functions and some DSP knowledge. The array functions are already part of Common Lisp, you don't need any special libraries or software packages other than a standard Common Lisp implementation for that.
How to get a Common Lisp implementation up and running depends largely on your operating system. With any Linux distribution there should be at least CCL
, or SBCL
available via the package manager of the Linux distribution.
