Sony has introduced the latest version of its Camera Remote Software Development Kit (SDK), enabling users to remotely control Sony cameras from a computer, including the ability to adjust camera settings. This update of the Camera Remote SDK empowers software developers to create custom applications tailored to meet specific business needs. It integrates Sony's equipment for applications such as size-critical drones, speed camera systems, medical imaging, education, government, and e-commerce.
The new version 1.08, available for free, enhances workflow efficiency in various sectors, including industrial applications, and mapping and surveying. It offers faster processing speeds for tasks like setting up shots and transferring files. Moreover, the SDK provides support for shutter triggers by electrical signals, enhancing image capture accuracy for applications such as photogrammetry and road traffic management. The expanded feature set of version 1.08 opens up possibilities for a wider range of applications. It is also compatible with the ZV-E1 full-frame interchangeable lens camera.
Christie Patel, B2B Marketing representative at Sony, emphasized the continuous improvement of the SDK based on customer feedback and the expansion of its functionality to serve various industrial and B2B applications. These range from photogrammetry and medical imaging companies to inspection services and e-commerce platforms.
The new version brings several significant updates, including improved processing speed, support for shutter triggers by electrical signals, remote power on/off capability, remote menu settings for video (including picture profile settings and timecode), and an "overheating warning" status notification that alerts remote users to any significant temperature increase in the camera.
