HOW-TO: CineDrive API Instructions

This document describes the network communications between a kOS motor control product (Device) and client control applications. Messages between the Device and clients are categorized as Get/Set Messages, Action Messages, or Notification Messages. Each message consists of a fixed header along with a payload containing 0 or more parameter values. Messages have a message type in the header that indicates whether they are intended to ‘Set’ a value on the Device or ‘Get’ a value from the Device. All messages from the Device to clients have a message type of ‘Response’.
