Camera and Lens Metadata readout

PostThu Feb 07, 2019 11:22 am


i would like to know if it is possible to get Camera and lens metadata out of a Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4k over an ATEM Television Studio Pro (HD). I know that the ATEM can control lens focus, iris and zoom control and the color correction settings.
But is there a way to read out those values over the network via OSC or MIDI or ...?

I am creating a Unreal Engine based green screen mixed reality studio and i'm in the process of researching the possibilities of getting lens metadata into the game engine.

Win. 10
HP Z620 - Dual 8 core

Machine 2:
Resolve 15.1.2 - BM Ultrastudio SDI USB3
Win. 10
ATI Radeon R9 390

No that is not possible. The Sdi protocol only goes 1 way. From Atem to Camera. Atem is Master to the camera. ;)
