I just read about the planned recorder.
Why not use an intel compute card for all image processing and just use an FPGA as a bridge from the image sensor to pci express.
I think this might help more people who are familiar with image processing on pc to develop for the axiom project.
The compute card would give an plug and play upgrade path for processing. Recording of Raw data could either be done on an nvme ssd like red does or on a connected usb 3.0 drive on low framerates.
