Camera Control software on Windows

PostTue May 18, 2021 12:41 pm

Hello.
I would like to know if someone already try to build a software on windows to control camera via Bluetooth?

I've done some programmation but long time ago at school. What software would you recommend to make it?
Visual Studio?

Thanks for your help.

Which camera model do you ant to contol (ursa or pocket) and is ATEM in the mix?

I have done lots of camera control over sdi from ATEM api and have an arduino sdi shild that could convert the sdi camera commands to bluetooth via a library like this https://github.com/kardinia-church/atem-ccu-2-bt or https://github.com/kardinia-church/atem-ccu-2-bt

Thanks for your answer.

The camera model is a pocket 6K. No Atem.

Basically I wanna try to convert Bluetooth to Wifi because the bluetooth connection of the camera is very limited (maximum 5m).

This is working on windows.
Im using VirtualHere software to share a bluetooth dongle connected to a small linux card (OrangePi Zero)
I have VirtualHere client on my computer and I can connect to the camera using wifi. No problem with that.

Now I need to creat the software on windows to send the command to the camera.
Im trying to make it work with Python using PyBluez but if someone know another language and can help a bit I can try to switch.

Thanks.
