MediaCMD Emulation SDK

ddr4_mediacmd_emulationsdk_The MediaCMD Emulation SDK allows your application to be controlled as if it were a professional production VTR via 9 pin serial control. Standard industry protocols are supported including Sony, Panasonic and Pioneer with extensions.  Server protocols like Odetics and VDCP are also supported.  The SDK is designed to insulate your application for the demands of individual emulations by providing a consistent, shared interface.  All the application needs to provide is frame accurate state information and frame accurate record and playback for completely frame accurate machine control.

Overview

MedaCMD Emulation SDK

Need your Windows/OS-X/Linux64 application to operate under serial control?

A standard part of Drastic's DDR technologies for the past ten years, the MediaCMD Emulation SDK make your application appear as a serial controlled VTR or DDR. This real time kernel mode driver for Windows NT and 2000 provides Sony Serial VTR, Sony/Panasonic/JVC Digital extensions, Odetics server protocol and VDCP server protocol to the outside world in an event driven ActiveX control compatible with all major development systems. This control is based on the same technology used in Drastic's award winning DDRs, ensuring maximum compatibility with ease of implementation.

All protocols are auto sensing.  Your software will respond correctly if any of the supported control protocols are used.  The emulation layer will automatically change protocols if the controlling device is changed while the emulation is running.  The actual emulation is written in WinNT/2Ks kernel mode (ring 0) so response is real time as required by most controllers and processor usage is minimal.
