PTZ joystick Downloads
This PTZ Joystick Controller is designed for pan, tilt, and zoom control of SONY VISCA and PELCO-P/D compatible PTZ cameras. This controller is ideal for PTZOptics cameras used with serial joystick cabling (see here) and can connect to most PTZ cameras with an 8-pin mini-din connection using a DB9 to 8-pin mini-din connection cable. Connect and control additional cameras by daisy-chain. The first PTZ camera connected to the joystick controller requires a DB9 to 8-pin mini-din cable. Subsequent cameras use RS-232 VISCA Cascade cabling/PTZ camera cascade cabling. This method of daisy-chaining multiple PTZ cameras with a serial PTZ joystick controller is an ideal way to avoid having to “home run” cable to each camera.
Tip: Configure pan limits to restrict camera operators from moving outside a given area. Set up boundaries limits for fast-moving sports games like Basketball and Hockey so camera operators can quickly move to the left or right without ever “overshooting” the game space boundaries.
Tip: Lower tilt limits when tracking presenters on stage. If your camera operators are mainly concerned with a left to right movement, avoid accidentally tilting the camera up or down by reducing the camera’s motor speeds for this action.
