There are multiple ways to control Blackmagic Design's digital film and broadcast cameras. URSA Mini Pro and URSA Broadcast cameras feature BlueTooth control and there is sample code and SDK documentation available here for download. Developers can also control many models of Blackmagic Design cameras from ATEM Switchers using the Blackmagic SDI camera control protocol. You can even use the Blackmagic 3G-SDI Shield for Arduino to build your own solutions for camera control! Cameras can also be controlled with VISCA protocol for PTZ, S.Bus, PWM or Bluetooth depending on the model. We look forward to seeing what creative control solutions you develop!
This document provides information for developers on controlling Blackmagic cameras and includes the SDI Camera Control Protocol 1.2, VISCA commands for PTZ control via SDI, Blackmagic Bluetooth Camera Control, S.Bus and PWM control.
This document provides information for developers seeking to capture uncompressed bayered sensor image data from the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K, via the ‘RAW’ SDI output.
