software to control hyperdecks

PostFri Jan 31, 2020 9:35 am


first of all I'm a senior EIC, TD as well but I'm a newbie in software development.

I'm looking for making a software to control my hyperdeckstudio's pro... I know that there is existing softwares, but as BMD is not providing genuine pristine software I want to develop my own.

but for entering the very first line of code I need help. Which software using to develop such an app (I'm on Mac OS)? I read the manual but I don't understand the principle of text based commands... I'm familiar with HTML, and I'm used to manage Markup language but it seems there is no markup here?! can anyone give me an exemple of a command and its syntax?

The principle of text based commands is exactly what Telnet uses. Your application needs to use TCP socket based protocol with some stream read/write of ASCII characters.

Virtually any language/runtime will provide this functionality. Node.js is probably your option if you only have HTML/javascript knowledge. ... tcp-client

Hi Boris salhaji,

As Ian mentioned, we have an Ethernet control protocol which is used to control the HyperDeck. You can find the commands in your HyperDeck manual under "Developer Information"

However, we actually provide code examples, including an HTML UI, on our developer website under "Introduction to the HyperDeck Control Protocol" ... /hyperdeck

There is a readme bundled in the zip file which provides instructions on how to launch this WebUI to connect to your HyperDeck.

Kind regards,
