VISCA / RS-232C Command


Use of RS-232C control software which has been developed based upon this command list may cause malfunction or damage to hardware and software. Sony Corporation is not liable for any such damage.

Overview of VISCA
In VISCA, the device outputting commands, for example, a computer, is called the controller. The device receiving the commands, such as SNC-RZ50N/P is called the peripheral devices. The VISCA communication conforms to the RS232 standard. The parameters of RS-232C are as follows: - Communication speed : 9600bps / 38400bps - Data bits : 8bit - Start bit: 1bit - Stop bit: 1bit - parity: none Flow control using XON/XOFF and RTS/CTS, etc., is not supported. In VISCA, the peripheral device can be daisy-chained. In SNC-RZ50N/P, the controller and the peripheral device must be used in pairs because the hardware of SNC-RZ50N/P doesn't support the daisy-chain connection.

VISCA Communication Specifications


The packet structure of VISCA The basic unit of VISCA communication is called a packet(cf. Figure1). The first byte of the packet is called the header and comprises the sender's and receiver's addresses. For example, the header of the packet sent to SNC-RZ50N/P assigned address 1 from the controller (address 0) is hexadecimal 81H. Only 81H is used as the header of packet of SNC-RZ50N/P because the hardware of SNC-RZ50N/P doesn't support the daisy-chain connection. The header of the reply packet from the camera assigned address 1 is 90H. When the terminator is FFH, it signifies the end of the packet.

Command and Inquiry Command Sends operational commands to SNC-RZ50N/P. Inquiry Used for inquiring about the current state of SNC-RZ50N/P. Command Packet 81 QQ RR ... FF Note QQ *--- Command/Inquiry, RR *--- category code

*1) QQ = 01 (Command), 09 (Inquiry) *2) RR = 00 (Interface), 04 (Camera), 06 (Pan/Tilter) Responses for commands and inquiries ACK message Returned by SNC-RZ50N/P when it receives a command. No Ack message is returned for inquiries. Completion message Returned by SNC-RZ50N/P when execution of commands or inquiries is completed. In the case of inquiry commands, it will contain reply data for the inquiry after the 3rd byte of the packet. If the ACK message is omitted, the socket number will contain 0. Reply Packet Ack 90 4Y FF Completion (commands) 90 5Y FF Completion (Inquiries) 90 5Y ... FF Note Y = socket number Y = socket number Y = socket number

Error message When a command or inquiry command could not be executed or failed, an error message is returned instead of the completion message. Error Packet 90 6Y 01 FF 90 6Y 02 FF 90 6Y 04 FF 90 6Y 05 FF 90 6Y 41 FF Socket number When command messages are sent to SNC-RZ50N/P, it is recommended to send the next command message after waiting for the completion message or error message to return. SNC-RZ50N/P has two buffers for commands. When SNC-RZ50N/P receives a command, it notifies the sender which command buffer was used using the socket number of the ACK message. Command execution cancel To cancel a command which has already been sent, send the Cancel command as the next command. Cancel Cancel Packet 81 2Y FF Note Y = socket number Description Message length error (> 14 bytes) Syntax Error Command canceled No socket (to be canceled) Command not executable Note : Y = socket number

The Command canceled error message will be returned for this command, but this is not a fault. It indicates that the command has been canceled.

VISCA Device Setting Command


For VISCA network administration Address Sets an address of a peripheral device. Used in VISCA peripheral device when initializing the network. Unused in SNC-RZ50N/P because the address of SNC-RZ50N/P is always "1". Address Packet 88 30 01 FF Note Always broadcasted.

IF_Clear Clears the command buffers in VISCA peripheral device and cancels the command currently being executed. Unused in SNC-RZ50N/P. IF_Clear IF_Clear(broadcast) Command Packet 81 01 00 01 FF 88 01 00 01 FF Reply Packet 90 50 FF 88 01 00 01 FF

Error Messages Command Message


Syntax Error

Comments
Returned when the command format is different or when a command with illegal command parameters is accepted. Returned when a command which is being executed in a socket specified by the cancel command is canceled. The completion message for the command is not returned. Returned when no command is executed in a socket specified by the cancel command, or when an invalid socket number is specified. Returned when a command cannot be executed due to current conditions. For example, when commands controling the focus manually are received during auto focus.

* Notices on the SNC-RZ50N/P VISCA


In SNC-RZ50N/P, in order to enable camera control via Ethernet, there are notes, such as restriction, about the VISCA communication using the external serial port. Taking following notices, use serial communication. 1) Non-supported daisy-chain connection The address of SNC-RZ50N/P is always "1" because SNC-RZ50N/P doesn't support daisy-chain connection though the peripheral device of VISCA supports it. 2) Congestion control The congestion(throwing away the packet) is performed when SNC-RZ50N/P receives so many camera control parameters of Pan, Tilt and so on via Ethernet or external serial port frequently. Don't send next command until the completion of prior command is notified after prior command transmission. 3) Transmission of non-supported command and the parameter out of the permissible limits In the SNC-RZ50N/P VISCA function, when the wrong command, the non-supported command, the parameter out of the permissible limits and so on are transmitted, the packet may be thrown away. Be sure to send only the command which is currently supported.
