Subject:    Anybody up for writing some Linux drivers or suggestions?

We manufacturer a hardware camera device called RAMCAM.  It's an open
hardware specification device targeting just about any platform.
However, I'm looking for some interested developers willing to write or
port over some Linux drivers for it.  (i.e. video for linux driver)

The unit supports CMOS imagers from Vision, the VV5300, VV6300, VV5404
and VV6404.  I've got complete source code in DOS for operating the
thing, but don't have time to fully investigate Video for Linux stuff.

The other problem I have is the conversion of the RGB Bayer filter
pattern to true 24 bit color.  While we have it working under Windows
true color mode, the colors are not quite as good as the commercial
product "creative web blaster II", which has the same VV6404 chip in
it.  It appears we are lacking decent color processing algorithms.

Any suggestions out there?

Sincerely,

If you've got DOS source in C or something sane (x86 is semi sane ;)) I'd
be interested if nobody else is.
