Blackmagic Design DeckLink output

I just added a consumer (output plugin) for DeckLink SDI and HDMI cards. Some of their cards have analog connections as well, and I think it works with those too. The way this is integrated, it can be enabled and built by default by your distribution (version after 0.5.10) such that if you get a card, you can just install the driver and library, and  it will be ready to work with MLT. This means you can get an open source SDI playout solution for Linux for less than $300!
