Sony RealShot Connector

The Sony RealShot Manager connector enables HVS to communicate and integrate with Sony v5.6.8.2. Video from Sony will be seamlessly integrated and displayed within the HVS interface. Within HVS Sony can then be correlated to be used with other HVS features. The integration relies upon the capabilities of the Sony RealShot Manager to provide feature accessibility within HVS.

  • Sony RealShot Manager API needs to be enabled.
  • Sony RealShot Manager needs to be configured to stream and record in MJPEG.
  • The Sony connector runs on a 64 bit Windows machine.
  • Video channels can be discovered through the Sony VMS.
  • Tested with Sony RealShot Manager API v5.6.8.2.

  • Show all cameras from Sony in HVS "Cameras" view with basic camera information.
