Consider the following setup:

main workstation:
- POWER9
- GPU
- OBS
- capture hardware

secondary workstation or laptop
- x86
- untrusted OS (e.g. Windows)
- applications that you are required to run for a client or employer (e.g. a messaging or remote desktop app) or a video meeting system that requires WebAssembly

You can generate an RTP video stream from the workstation, receive it on the secondary workstation and make it available as a virtual webcam for the software on that machine

I opened a couple of discussions about the topic:
