Hi dev list,
I am in need of a custom external to control popular and relatively inexpensive video hardware:
The Black Magic Design ATEM 1/ME (and variants 2/ME and 'TV Studio')
BMD has published an SDK in C++ for Mac and Windows. The SDK handles all the network comm and message formatting... basically I need someone to write a max external that:
- makes the TCP/IP connection
- expose the necessary messages/calls with proper variable arguments
- can return the state of the mixer using the included query messages.
I am not interested in the entire SDK (which includes ability to upload media to the hardware)
but merely the control messages (switching inputs and outputs.
I don't intend this to be an object for sale, I would stipulate that the object be released to the community for free.
I can also lend the hardware if necessary, or I can actively test builds here.
I DO have decent funds available to fund the project, unless your interested for the sake of the challenge, or it is extremely easy :)
PS This might have much interest out there for other users (especially jitter) as with the TVS you can mix/switch full HDMI in hardware for under $1000, and much more with the bigger models.
