Driver development is funded by WIS Technologies, who makes the encoder 
ASIC in the ConvertX, and who has every intention of keeping the driver 

However, the reference documentation is only available under the standard
WIS developer agreement.  This is primarily because the documentation
focuses strongly on hardware design and internal architecture, which is
important for ODMs developing hardware around the encoder, and which WIS 
considers to be confidential information.  Similar restrictions are placed 
on documentation for supporting components such as the Sony TV tuners.
