Magewell has expanded its support for the Mac platform with a new SDK for its PCI Express capture cards, plug-and-play and external capture devices. Available immediately, the SDK lets third-party developers directly access the advanced capabilities of Magewell capture devices in their macOS and OS X software applications.Magewell’s USB Capture Gen 2, USB Capture Plus and Pro Capture products were already automatically compatible with popular OS X and macOS software through native operating system support or universal drivers. The new SDK lets third-party software vendors integrate the hardware’s capture functionality into their own solutions. The SDK provides APIs based on the macOS AVFoundation framework for all three product families. At the same time, custom Magewell APIs for Pro Capture PCIe cards enable deeper control over capture parameters, access to ancillary metadata and lower latency for capturing video up to 4K at 60 fps. Example GUI-based and command-line tools help developers get up to speed quickly.The new SDK for macOS and OS X is available here: www.magewell.com/sdk
Nautronix has secured an order from HHI, Korea to supply a NASNet® DPR (Dynamic Positioning Reference) System which will be used on the Bollsta Dolphin drilling rig.NASNet® DPR is the ultimate position reference system for Dynamic Positioning; it also has the benefits of the well-known NASNet® subsea acoustic positioning system and can be used either within pre-installed field-wide NASNet® arrays, or as a localised positioning system. The system provides robust mitigation against many of the risks associated with both acoustic and satellite positioning systems, allowing multiple users to benefit simultaneously from the same array with no risk of interference. NASNet® DPR uses cutting edge acoustic technology combined with a user-friendly interface to provide high speed position updates and stable positioning in water depths up to 4000m.Bollsta Dolphin Drilling RigGraeme Murray, Managing Director of Dolphin Drilling said “We are delighted to be using a NASNet® DPR system on our new build, the Bollsta Dolphin. Dolphin Drilling is very supportive of this new technology and sees the significant advantages it can give to our customer. The system will give us fast one way, multi user acoustic positioning which will give us real opportunities to expand our subsea capabilities and redundancy for any loss of GPS due to scintillation.”Mark Patterson, CEO of Nautronix, comments: “We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract to supply a NASNet® DPR system, this is the first time it has been used on a drilling rig and we are really excited about where this can take us. It is a great testament to our technology, products and the investment Nautronix has made and I am delighted that such a well-known and respected company such as Dolphin Drilling and HHI have chosen NASNet® DPR.”Press Release, March 25, 2014
