Pause in decklink cards

PostThu Jun 29, 2017 8:54 am


Anyone knows if it's possible to send a pause command to decklick card using de SDK.

I'm developing an application where the user can start the recording, pause it and record againg, creating a single file.

Where can I find the SDK information?

Hi Carles,

The Desktop Video SDK is freely available from the Blackmagic Design Support page, in the Capture and Playback section [1].

I recommend reviewing SDK manual section "2.4.1 Capture" for a high-level overview of the steps required to perform a capture operation, and PauseStreams[2] for detail of the method to pause a capture operation.

Please note that while the DeckLink API provides interfaces for uncompressed capture (& playback), it does not include interfaces for file IO, software video codecs, nor container formats (AVI, mp4, etc.).
