Custom UI development for BMD Smartscope and Hyperdeck 12G?

PostWed Jan 31, 2018 11:53 pm

Hello people,

I would like some guide in developing a UI for a smart scope and a hyper deck 12g.

I will be MS visual studio on MS platform.

It just a hassle to fire up different apps to control these kits that why I thought it would be easy for me

to develop a single app to control my BMD kits, and if I buy another BMD kit I can just update the app.

My question is should I be developing the UI frontend in C or C#?

I have already downloaded the SDK 6.3.3, Is this SDK in C or C#?

API's are C++ but you can use Com Interop from C#.
SmartScope and HyperDeck have a very simple TCP text command protocol which might be all you need, in which case go with C# and WPF UI.

Hi,
They are in the HyperDeck product manual.
In Developer section "Blackmagic HyperDeck Ethernet Protocol"
