Sony has announced a new camera software development kit, Camera Remote SDK, that gives third-party developers and integrators access to Sony’s camera data to help produce new imaging experiences.
Sony’s Camera Remote SDK will initially support the Sony A7R IV and Sony A9 II full-frame cameras, but eventually the scheme will support more cameras from Sony’s range.
Camera Remote SDK will allow developers to remotely access camera control functions from a host PC and facilitate transmission of the image data back from Sony cameras.
What’s more, Camera Remote SDK allows developers and integrators to remotely access other functions such as changing the camera settings, shutter release and live view monitoring in their software applications.
Camera Remote SDK follows Sony’s Camera Remote API, which will now be closed and Sony will cease to support.
