And this person/group heavily anti-recommends Tiresias as a caption
font (<URL:http://screenfont.ca/fonts/today/Tiresias/>) and suggests
some alternatives (<URL:http://screenfont.ca/fonts/today/interim/>). I
don't know if there are any freely-available versions of the
alternatives, though, nor whether 1920x1080 or 1280x720
high-definition video changes any of the underlying assumptions behind
the site's arguments.

Frontend/backend:	P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Slave backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
