SDI Bluetooth protocol

PostMon Oct 14, 2019 8:26 pm

Is there any documentation about the reply the camera send in the Incoming Camera Control UUID: B864E140-76A0-416A-BF30-5876504537D9Service ?

Is there a command I can send to
Outgoing Camera Control UUID: 5DD3465F-1AEE-4299-8493-D2ECA2F8E1BB or Camera Status
UUID: 7FE8691D-95DC-4FC5-8ABD-CA74339B51B9 to
START/STOP RECORDING and TAKE PICTURES ?

I can't switch the camera On and Off using the Camera Status Bluetooth Service, Is it working on Pocket Cinema Camera 6K firmware 6.5 like the manual (BlackmagicCameraControl.pd) describe at page 16?

For the RECORDING START/STOP I have found the Command 10.1 Transport mode that setting mode=2 start Recording and setting mode=0 stop recording,
I continue to wait for some help about the other questions

I have found that the Incoming Camera Control register do Indications using the same protocol used in Outgoing Camera Control but for some Category/Parameter I can't find the documentation.
Is it possible to read a Parameter ?

Hi Easydive,

The SDI protocol is unidirectional only - therefore you can not query parameters.
However, the Bluetooth protocol is bi-directional and allows for reading parameters from the device.

Hope that answers your question.
