VISCA protocol from SONY
Posted on 1998-02-12
VISCA is an acrynom of Video System Control Architecture.
(I think it's a SONY standard or something like that)
I try to develop a remote control for a videoconference camera (SONY EVI-D31) via a PC's COM-Port.
The communication protocol is VISCA, as mentioned above.
I run into trouble for 6 months now, because I don't know exactly how to handle the incoming HEX-Strings from the camera.
I have all the commands for controlling the cam, even the expected answers on these commands.
But I have no idea how to manage the acknowledges for the commands and the inquiries. (The timing they are coming is absolutely strange to me...).
Does anybody has a ready solution regarding the communication with the VISCA protocol ?
Perhaps written in VC++ ? (pleassse)
Any idea where I could get further informations ?
Don't send me info on VISCA...I need solutions on communication with visca.
(SONY told me to buy their selfmade application...very helpful...)
I'll start with 150 pts. but be sure, that you'll get ALL the rest of my points when you can help me out of here !
