New Blackmagic Design SDK for cross-platform video capture

Blackmagic Design has released its new cross-platform software developer’s kit for companies that want to write software for capture and playback of high-quality video on Mac and PC workstations. The Blackmagic SDK v1.2 provides access to not only the capture and playback capabilities of the company’s DeckLink, Intensity and Multibridge products, but also to features previously not available to customers developing via QuickTime or DirectShow frameworks. This includes full access to the capture control panel settings as well as other configuration parameters.

With the new APIs included in this SDK, developers can now rapidly develop applications for Blackmagic Design products on both Mac OS X as well as both 32- and 64-bit Windows XP and Vista platforms. This eliminates the need to constantly restructure their existing code to work around QuickTime or DirectShow framework limitations.

Blackmagic SDK v1.2 with full documentation and sample code included is available now free of charge from the Blackmagic Design Web site.
