Simultaneous Video Outputs
Every PTZOptics camera is capable of sending three simultaneous video streams through HDMI, HD-SDI, USB 3.0 and IP streaming depending on the model you are using. The resolution of these video outputs is set by the rotary dial on the back of each camera. You will notice each PTZOptics camera also have a analog CVBS port. This port is not simultaneous with the others. If you wish to use this port you must set the resolution to 480i or 576i and the other digital ports will be disabled.
Camera Control Options
Every PTZOptics camera can be control via IP (over the network), RS-232 (via VISCA), or UVC (through a USB cable) for the USB models. IP control is quickly becoming a preferred standard for ease of use. Once connected to the network each camera will set a static IP address and you will be able to log into the camera to adjust settings and operate PTZ controls. Controlling the camera via RS-232 is used for many control systems and traditional RS-232 VISCA joysticks. Finally UVC control provides pan, tilt and zoom controls over a USB connection to the camera. This control protocol can be set to either absolute or relative control for use in supported web conferencing and control software.
Every PTZOptics camera includes IP Streaming capabilities with both video and audio. To use these capabilities the camera must be connected to your network. Once connected to your network you can log in to the device via the IP Adress. The default user name and password is “admin” and “admin”. Once you have logged into the camera’s GUI interface you can browse to the “Video” tab to enter your RTSP or RTMP streaming credentials. We have options for embedding audio which will come through the camera’s 3.5mm audio input.
Using the Remote Control
Every PTZOptics camera includes an IR remote control which can be used for camera PTZ and configuration. You will notice each IR remote control can operate up to 4 cameras. There is a switch on the back of each camera you can use to set the IR receiver in situations for controlling multiple cameras via the IR remote. There is an on screen display menu you can use to fine tune your camera settings. Setting and calling a preset can be done by pressing the set button and the number you which to set the preset to. Then to call the preset you simply press the number button you have assigned.
PTZOptics cameras offer various video outputs including: HD-SDI, HDMI, USB 3.0, IP Streaming and CVBS. Each video cable has its own distance limitations to be aware of. HD-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 and CVBS cabling limitations are highly dependent on the quality of cabling.
3 Year Warranty
Every PTZOptics camera comes with a 3 year manufacture warranty. This warranty covers any and all manufacture defects within the first 3 years. This warranty does not cover actual end user damage or corruption through SDK modifications
