The datasheet for the KAF-16803 (Apogee U16M camera) similarly was little help when it came to interpreting the extra data appended to the frames by the Apogee driver. The driver remaps the data in some mysterious and undocumented way. Apogee support were vaguely helpful and after consulting with their engineering team confirmed what I had already figured out from inspecting the data but didn't tell me anything new. I think that overscan isn't widely used by non-professionals...
