If you don't want to use a dedicated MPEG encoder chip (possibly
cheaper, pinouts might not match) nor do you have an FPGA with
good component libraries and you want the power of a DSP to
work with, I'd say yes, the Overo fits the bill.

This TVP5146 is not something I'm familiar with; "almost" is an
interesting word. :) If you can make the decoder pin-compatible
(or nearly so) with the Caspa camera, I would say the Caspa driver
could be used as-is or modified slightly to work. I think the
camera connect to pins on the CPU that are fairly easy to work
with, so even a few pins being different would work. You already
have the decoder picked out and are apparently doing a bit of
board design, so the hardware part won't be too bad. Even
writing a simple I2C driver for the video data component isn't out
Looks like you'll have a 20 bit incoming signal. I don't really know
what the Caspa provides, but it's not that different I don't think.
Best of luck!

No worries; on Xilinx FPGAs and a lot of other embedded systems you can
actually transfer the binary to the chip over the JTAG debugging buss. It's just not an option
