My bet is that the capture is done via software driver, thus linux support
is unlikely unless the manufacturer releases HW specs and a person is
interested in developing the driver.  If you are lucky it may be supported
by the BTTV driver, but you would have to buy and test.

Depending on your framerate needs, you could look for a security camera
capture card, there was some discussion on XCSSA a while back.  TWeeks may
have more useful info here....
