Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield which lets you use an Arduino to customize your own studio camera control solutions!
Arduino is the popular open-source electronics prototyping platform used by hardware designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating projects. Arduino is designed to be as flexible as possible and very low cost and in many ways is similar to Raspberry Pi, however it’s simpler and more designed for hardware developers while Raspberry Pi is more targeted to software engineers.
Using the Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield is easy, as all you need to do is get an Arduino, download the IDE from arduino.cc and then load the sample code. The sample code shows you how the Arduino communicates to the Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield and the shield sends the commands to the camera via the SDI connection.
Writing the code to send the commands to the camera is also very easy. Arduino programs are called Sketches and they are very easy to write. The commands for camera control are documented in the ATEM manual. The Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield only uses the I2C bus so you could use it with other micro controllers such as a Raspberry Pi. All the commands in the instruction manual for the studio cameras are supported and you can use the manual as a reference.
The Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield, when combined with the new URSA Mini viewfinder and studio software update is an incredibly powerful combination. It also works with all Blackmagic Studio cameras. You can control the lens, color corrector, detail, and all camera settings. You could even remove the electronics of an old obsolete CCU and replace them with a new Arduino design to transform it into a modern CCU!
