iOS App for PTZOptics Cameras Banner

"My church uses 2 PTZOptics 12X-SDI-Gen2 cameras and this app is a quality alternative to the more expensive options on the market to control these cameras. The app integrates well with our live streaming workflow and allows our camera volunteer to have smooth, steady control of each shot from 2 camera positions. The app developer regularly provides enhancements that have improved our videos and streaming quality, such as configurable PTZ speed controls. As a 16-year church volunteer, I highly recommend this one!"
