Joker TV project is not only Open Source, but Open Hardware too
We strongly believe that openness is a key to progress and we made “Joker TV” project completely open source and open hardware. Open source is about community, transparency, reliability, better security, better quality, customizability, flexibility, interoperability, auditability, cost effectiveness and freedom from lock-in !
Professionals and enthusiasts are most welcome to collaborate. We are open for any assistance and ideas.
