Not quite.  We are a research group doing image and video
processing algorithm R&D on QHD technology.

But your guesses are certainly reasonable.  There is "application"
per-se. We need to look at our results and the solutions that exist
are expensive.

I believed (and still do) that a suitably powerful linux box (reading
video from RAM memory) should be able to drive the device at 60 fps.
