In this video, we review the new PTZOptics Camera Control App… available to download today for both Mac and PC. This application was originally released as a BETA inside the PTZOptics Facebook User Group. Since then, we’ve incorporated all the best feature recommendations submitted by users  around the world into the application we offer today.

Notable features include the ability to control up to 8 PTZOptics cameras over IP or USB. Users can choose to control cameras with an included compact controller, an Xbox joystick controller or keyboard hotkeys. In compact mode, users can quickly switch between 8 cameras and 9 presets with image previews. In advanced mode, users can select custom camera pan, tilt and zoom speeds. Please note that exposure, luminance, and white balance settings, are still in BETA. We highly suggest using the OSD menu controls to permanently store your camera settings.
