Blackmagic cameras are the most open and extensible cameras in the world. You can download developer SDKs to add support for the new innovative Blackmagic RAW file format to your own software applications or to develop your own custom control solutions for Blackmagic digital film and broadcast cameras! If you’re looking to develop control solutions, some camera models support features such as SDI and Bluetooth control. The Blackmagic SDI camera control protocol allows you to develop controls for use with ATEM switchers, VISCA, S.Bus, PWM, or even the Blackmagic 3G-SDI Shield for Arduino to build your own hardware based solution. We look forward to seeing what creative solutions you develop!
The Blackmagic RAW SDK 1.4 adds support for the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, features a new cross platform Blackmagic RAW player app for Windows and Linux, and adds the new Blackmagic RAW Speed Test app for Mac. In addition, Blackmagic RAW SDK 1.4 adds thumbnail and preview pane support for Windows, shader caching, CUDA 10 support, RGBU16 support, and pipeline device queries to detect the presence of CUDA, Metal, OpenCL and CPU resources.
