6.9, Camera Control, and the ATEM SDK

PostMon Apr 06, 2020 5:56 pm

What is the correct SDK to use to make use of the new camera control feature added to the 6K w/ the 6.9 release?

I wonder if that is even available in the SDK.. Keep in mind this control data is send trough the HDMI return and is not free accessible at the moment.. ;)

But might be that BMD will release an Addendum to the Bluetooth protocol to allow for more CCU control..

I suspect the hdmi control is identical to sdi from the ATEM api point of view. Would be easy to test with my PowerShell camera control software.

If so, it means you could use something like a Raspberry Pi to send the commands via i2c on the hdmi to the camera for ccu.
