 From what I understand about SDI, it is possible to send alpha 
information over an SDI link in certain configuration (RGBA) -- from 
what I read on Wikipedia ( 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_digital_interface#Link_numbering ) 
on SDI. I will assume that it might be possible to access that 
information from such a decklink card (I don't have and SDI hardware as 
of yet, but might end up getting one)
