DeckLink SDI ancillary data
on Aug 25, 2010 at 6:03:50 pm

I am in the process of attempting to switch my companies capture solution to the DeckLink SDI and DeckLink Duo cards.

I am able to capture video and audio fine, and have moved on to getting the closed caption data in the ancillary data, where I am having problems.

I am running the DeckLink 7.7.3 drivers on Ubuntu 10.04, currently with the DeckLink SDI.

I have the 7.7.2 version of the SDK.

using IDeckLinkVideoFrameAncillary::GetBufferForVerticalBlankingLine with a 720p source (verified with our previous card to have 708 cc data) this call returns 25 lines of ancillary data, all of which I am copying out and searching through simply to find the cdp_header start code (0x9669) I never get it.

As per spec I am searching in the Y stream, also I am capturing bmdFormat8BitYUV.

Is there some extra processing that this call does to the ancillary data?
Or am I missing something fundamental?

Any example code for parsing out cc data?

thanks for any help.

Hi Martin,

You need to capture in 10 bit as the two bits that are stripped to
capture in 8 bit are significant in the CC data.
