comment Video encoding for archival
You probably realise this but you also need a policy to put the video onto appropriate media, keep backups (where needed and, though this shouldn't apply to home movies, allowed under licences) and to refresh copies and backups from time to time (including moving to current media before you don't have reader for the old media)

comment Text Terminal Hardware (for Linux)
Another computer can connect, usually via Ethernet or even serial, and run a remote session. So an old computer or a cheap laptop or netbook should be fine as you don't need any significant resources on it. As to just a screen and keyboard via USB -- other than an old aptop via a serial-USB conversion, I suspect that may be more expensive if it exists
