WHAT IS A PTZ CAMERA?

It’s become a buzz word in the tech industry, but many people may not know what the term PTZ camera means. PTZ cameras are pan, tilt and zoom robotic video cameras that allow an operator to control the camera remotely. PTZ cameras can pan horizontally, tilt vertically and zoom in on a subject to enhance the image quality without digital pixelation. Designed to make broadcast quality affordable. PTZOptics USB, SDI and NDI PTZ cameras can make your next video project come alive.

CASE STUDIES

CAMERA LINE BASICS

Video Outputs

Simultaneous Video Outputs

NDI, USB & SDI PTZOptics cameras are capable of sending three simultaneous video streams through HDMI, HD-SDI, USB 3.0 and IP streaming (NDI|HX®) depending on the model you are using. Therefore, you can accommodate multiple video production workflows and grow with almost any video project goals that you have.

PTZ Camera Control

Camera Control Options

Most PTZOptics camera can be controlled via IP (over the network), RS-232 (via VISCA), or UVC (through a USB cable) for the USB models. Above all control methods, IP control is quickly becoming a preferred standard for ease of use. Once connected to the network each camera can be set with a static IP address or DHCP. In addition, you will be able to log into the camera to adjust settings and operate PTZ controls. Similarly, controlling the camera via RS-232 or RS-485 is used for many control systems and PTZ joysticks. Finally, UVC control provides pan, tilt and zoom controls over a USB connection to the camera.

IP Streaming

IP Streaming

All IP-connected PTZOptics cameras include IP streaming capabilities with both video and audio. Therefore once the camera is connected to your network, you can log into the GUI interface with any web-browser to setup the RTSP or RTMP streaming settings. In addition, audio can be embedded via the 3.5 mm audio input.

IR Remote Control

IR Remote Control

Most PTZOptics cameras include an IR remote control. Each IR remote control can operate up to four cameras. Secondly, there is an on-screen display menu you can use to fine-tune your camera settings. Setting and calling a PTZ preset can be done by pressing the set button and the number you wish to set the preset to. Moreover, you can use the IR remote to call a PTZ preset, by simply pressing the number button you have assigned.

Camera Cabling Options

Connectivity Limitations

PTZOptics cameras offer various video outputs including 3G SDI, HDMI, USB 3.0, IP Streaming and CVBS. Each video cable has its own distance limitations. 3G SDI cabling is preferred for long distances up to 1,000’. Network cabling for IP streaming can be extended up to 328’. HDMI cabling can reach distances up to 50’ without requiring extensions while CVBS cabling limitations are highly dependent on the quality of cabling.
