GoPro announces open API

GoPro has announced the launch of the “Open GoPro” ini­tia­tive, an open API that allows third-par­ty devel­op­ers to inte­grate the HERO9 Black action cam­era into their own projects. This allows them to access fea­tures such as wire­less con­nec­tion, cam­era con­trol, cam­era sta­tus con­trol, live footage pre­view, saved photo/video view­ing and mem­o­ry card trans­fer. GoPro Hero9 Black cam­era firmware must be updat­ed to ver­sion 1.6 in order to access the pub­lic API.

Orqa became a key partner

The well-known Croa­t­ian hob­by com­pa­ny Orqa has become a key part­ner in open­ing the inte­gra­tion. Now their top cre­ation FPV gog­gles “Orqa FPV.One” sup­port inter­ac­tion with the GoPro Hero9 Black action cam­era. To do this, Orqa engi­neers have spe­cial­ly devel­oped a soft­ware tool that allows you to direct­ly con­nect to the action cam­era and inter­act with it direct­ly through the inter­face of the FPV gog­gles. So, for exam­ple, the pilot will be able to check the bat­tery sta­tus of the cam­era, the capac­i­ty of the mem­o­ry card, change the video record­ing para­me­ters. To acti­vate this option, you need to update the firmware of the FPV gog­gles to ver­sion 2.8.0.
