Sony Visca control with Spacemouse


    Aug 06 2021 | 10:54 am
    Hi all,
    For those who are working with PTZ-cams this might be interesting. I made a patch to control PTZ-cams with a Spacemouse Compact via Sony Visca. I use it in combination with a Streamdeck and Companion software. Pan, Tilt, Zoom and Focus control are on the Spacemouse. Things like gain and iris are controlled on the Streamdeck. This patch also contains readout of the gain and iris-values to be displayed on the Streamdeck. Have fun!
    cheers,
    Mark.

      Thanks a lot for this Mark!
      I have a SpaceNavigator, and although I've never looked into MAX, I believe I managed to change the identity of the device from SpaceMouse Compact to SpaceNavigator. However, I'm stuck with getting it to work in Companion.
      I'm controlling PTZoptics cameras using the Visca PTZoptics connection inside Companion, and although I'm able to connect to the camera and control it through the Streamdeck and Emulator , I'm not sure how to make the SpaceNavigator and Streamdeck communicate.
      BTW, I have also enabled OSC inside the 'Remote Control Service' in Companion and changed the listen port to 7401. However, I must be missing something.
      I appreciate all the help I could get!
      Thanks, Damian
