Here you can brainstorm anything that is not already available as specific project.

Agreed on the internal ND filter. Whether it's an electronic, variable, or rotary disk style, it's incredibly handy to have. Especially on cranes and gimbals. It could also breed greater functionality and cause for use of the remote control in those situations. Lack of behind the lens ND has made some RED rigs much larger than what would be preferable in some tighter scenarios as well.

In my opinion, I think an ND filter for the AXIOM is necessary. The option of the electronic ND filter integrated into the body of the camera is the best option :)

this electronic controlled ND filter built in would be the perfect solution for two reasons:

Added those to the doc. Any other questions let me know and I'll ask all together during next contact.
Is the foam ESD safe?
Is it conductive?

I will most definitely also be there this year, and we are planning on running a KinoKabaret Assembly using the KINOÏT Platform. It would be really great to work together and let some hacker-filmmakers get some experience with the AXIOM.

Exactly. Going further, you could also allow users to opt-in their hardware into something like a "fleet health check" which would be a pathway to send errors / regressions / heat statistics whatever back to HQ for QA...
As far as the my.apertus.org idea is concerned, it might be worth looking into a scheme that serves unique / registered apertus hostnames on a subdomain with the cert being held on the device.
In my opinion, until the networking stack and sudoers permissions are hardened in the Beta Software package, any exposure to the lighttpd service is really dangerous...
i think aes256 would be much more practical to use. with otp one would need to store twice the data, which is not very practical in terms of bandwidth and storage price.
Moreover, when crossing borders with footage, one would most likely carry both storage mediums (the footage and the key), which would make the encryption useless. when using aes, we could encrypt the key with a password and therefore keep the footage secure, even if all the storage mediums are confiscated.

Interesting, I was not aware of this new form factor!
By compute card I mean this https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/boards-kits/compute-card.html
Basically a smaller nuc in a credit card size. Might be interesting for future upgrades an better suited for the recorder you planned using the nuc inside.
Regarding the image processing power. Has this to be done in camera except for an low res (720p) viewfinder image which could be done on the FPGA or maybe on the gpu of the compute card?
When I was mentioning the card I was more thinking of a recording solution which has an easy interface to sata and nvme storage which to my knowledge only the zynq ultrascale+ offers.
This could record the data to cinema DNG where all processing is offloaded to the editing workstation.

SDI development is essential finished and working, we should chat about the details for CCC soon, ping me on IRC please.
Dear Apertus Assembly,
your Assembly is accepted and we will provide a space for you.

@allan do you have a hdmi recorder like an Atomos Shogun you could borrow us for the camera demo rig at the CCC?

I think, I won't manage to be there for a long time but im happy to join you for some time. Especially if you have a Beta ;)

@jatha great. do you want to be part of the assembly?
I will be there too :)

I registered our assembly and spoke to felix.

We rather use chip tuning like for cars, no?

I will be there too.
Great! We will make sure you have everything you need.
Since we partner with Felix from the VOC we should ask them to have a combined assembly.
This combination looks really good: https://www.videodevices.com/products/portable-video-recorders/pix-e5/pix-lr (technically and visually!)
