New Dual SDI EPTZ ZCam


Dual Output SDI ZCams

With the latest 4K video camera sensor built-in you can captured zoomed in views while maintaining 1080p and 720p quality levels. Determine the maximum zoom level that fits your project to get the most out of your 4K image. Zoom into your 4K image and create digital ePTZ presets that you can recall with the click of a button.

*SDI outputs are limited to 1080p30fps or lower resolutions.


Digital PTZ inside 4K

EPTZ simulates pan, tilt and zoom operations inside of a large resolution pixel space. For example, a 4K image space allows for 3X lossless digital zoom with a 720p output. With two unique SDI outputs, your production can effectively cut between wide and tight camera views from the same camera.

IP-Connectivity. Used for PoE (Power over Ethernet) IP Streaming (RTSP/RTMP/RTMPS), and remote EPTZ control (VISCA over IP).
SDI Output #1 – Full wide-angle camera view 104°.
SDI Output #2 – EPTZ video feed. Outputting 1080p-30/25, 1080i-30/25, 720p-30/25 with digital zoom capabilities and PTZ camera presets.
Camera menu control.
RS-485 serial camera control.
NDI Controls with EPTZ

Take control of your cameras EPTZ functionality with the free PTZOptics camera control software.
Many other software solutions can control this camera including OBS, Wirecast, Livestream Studio and many more that support PTZOptics VISCA over IP (*Works with both models). Using the NDI model, users can control the camera with NDI Studio and many other NDI production solutions.


Overview Video

The EPTZ ZCams are going to change the way you think about 4K and 1080p production environments using the power of electronic Pan, Tilt and Zoom.

4k vs 1080p




A large UHD CMOS image sensor and camera lens make close up details more realistic on video. Whether you are recording a video, live streaming, or video conferencing details will look crisper even when digitally enhanced with ePTZ.




This short set up video shows you how quickly you can use this camera with two SDI video sources in your system. Learn how to connect and control this camera on your network.
