It’s not often that a company opens up their products for the world to develop for and communicate with. There have been a few companies to do it, such as Blackmagic Design, GoPro and DJI, although it’s still quite rare for it to happen. Many companies are very protective of their intellectual property, and they want to lock you into coming back to them when you need more capability.
Accsoon has taken the opposite approach, releasing a free Software Development Kit (SDK) for their new Accsoon SeeMo (buy here). Announced last October, the Accsoon SeeMo is an unassuming little box to let you use your iPhone or iPad as a field monitor for your camera. The SDK opens up a whole world of possibilities for developers to expand that capability. We stopped by the Accsoon booth at NAB 2023 to learn more.
