The CamDirector® Teacher Tracker can be controlled over IP, with TCP commands or by HTTP API as detailed in "TCP and HTTP API commands" available online in the Download section of the CAMDIRECTOR® AI PROCESSING UNIT (CD500) and the CamDirector Teacher Tracker software (AV-CD-TRAC1):




TCP over IP

To control the camera this way, you need a TCP supported application, like 'Hercules SETUP utility' or 'Packet Sender' for example, and using these settings: TCP port 1260, and TCP address 1 (to replace the "x" in the command, for instance "81 02 01 6F 01 FF" if you want to use the "8x 02 01 6F 01 FF" command to start the tracking).


All TCP commands currently supported by the CamDirector are listed in the "TCP and HTTP API commands" document

(Note that these commands will only work from CamDirector® Teacher Tracker version 1.05!)



HTTP API

With the HTTP API you can control the CamDirector® Teacher Tracker by using a web browser like Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome for example.


To use the HTTP API you need to start the command with the CD500 IP address, for instance:

http://192.168.5.50/api?szCmd=


Below is the example of the "TeacherTracker" command set to "ON" to enable the teacher tracker:

http://192.168.5.50/api?szCmd={"SetENV"{"TeacherTracker":"on}}


All HTTP API commands currently supported by the CamDirector are listed in the "TCP and HTTP API commands" document

(Note that these commands will only work from CamDirector® Teacher Tracker version 1.05!)
