The following videos outline integration with various Blackmagic broadcast hardware including the ATEM video switcher line. In the following video, you will find reviews of both the compatibility and limitations of using PTZOptics cameras and Blackmagic products.

So what about PTZOptics ZCams? Yes, we tested them! And check out that new 12X ZCam on a slider. Yeah, it looks pretty amazing. PTZOptics ZCams support the same resolutions as our SDI camera models but they do not yet support broadcast frame rates. Let’s check out the chart.
PTZOptics Cameras with Blackmagic ATEM support
To change the resolution of your ZCam camera you’ll use the on-screen display menu. Click the button on the back of the ZCam to open the OSD Menu. Navigate to the Settings menu and select a video format. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to reboot your camera for the resolution change to take effect. Then, double-check to ensure your ATEM unit is set to the corresponding resolution and frame rate.
