Our 3G SDI cables for PTZ cameras are ideal for video resolutions up to 1080p at 60 frames per second. These 3G-SDI cables include locking connectors which securely connect to the back of PTZ cameras SDI video ouputs ports
Our DB9 serial control cabling is to be used with PTZ joystick controllers such as the Serial Joystick. This cabling is used to extend the DB9 joystick output to the first PTZ camera in your control system. Subsequent cameras in a daisy-chain setup should use the 8-pin mini-din cascasde cables with the PTZ cameras “out” port for camera controls. Serial control cabling is ideal for super low latency connectivity and daisy-chain camera control setups for PTZ joystick avoid running “home run” cabling to each camera in your system.
