PTZOptics is popular in the Healthcare industry with our HD pan tilt zoom cameras and far end camera control software. PTZOptics high value comes not only from our affordable price point but also robust features that are well suited for TeleMedicine. VSee uses the PTZOptics UVC camera control protocols to build pan tilt and zoom control directly into their HIPAA compliant software. Other use cases involve remote camera control with our “PresetVizualizer” software that allows clinicians and doctors to simply click the area of interest for the camera to zoom into. Below you will find the latest information on PTZOptics in the healthcare industry along with useful configuration diagrams and case studies.

Telemedicine Case Study 1
PTZOptics Robotic Telemedicine Case Study with Pertexa
Pertexa chooses PTZOptics robotic PTZ cameras for their Telemedicine Robot deployment in rural California
Pertexa Healthcare Technologies, Inc, the California-based telemedicine company announces they have selected PTZOptics robotic PTZ cameras for their flagship product RITA (Remote Intelligent TeleHealth Assistant). These telemedicine robots will be deployed with the a number of the latest, state-of-the-art technologies and allow doctors full PTZ camera control remotely from anywhere in the world. The specialties will include dermatology, cardiology, pain management ,OB/GYN , orthopedic and primary care.
PTZOptics USB camera line supports absolute UVC control allowing Pertexa to control the robotic PTZ functions through a simple USB connection to RITA. This allows doctors working remotely to intertact in real time with patients while also zooming into particular areas of interest during a telemedicine consult.
RITA allows doctors to remotely evaluate the severity of an illness or injury and determine the best course of action through compatible medical devices and video consultation. Physicians control the camera to examine patients remotely and have immediate access to electronic health records, EKG results, blood pressure and oxygen readings, and any other equipment utilized to medically diagnose an injury or illness.
Pertexa, Inc. is a next-generation medical technology company headquartered in Ridgecrest, California that creates and distributes advanced technology including R.I.T.A. (Robotic Intelligent Telemedicine Assistant) and Radekal, the nation’s leading Physician’s Productivity Tool. Pertexa has been recognized as one of the most innovative medical technology companies in America and works with leading medical facilities in California to improve and advance rural healthcare.
PTZOptics encourages third parties like VSee to integrate camera controls into their software by providing open source controls, SDK’s and various standard protocols. Companies such as NewTek, RocoSoft and Zoom Video Communications have already integrated similar projects for native camera control in their video communication programs. Pertexa is the first telemedicine focused software to integrate secure camera controls with PTZOptics.
Pertexa, Inc. is a next-generation medical technology company headquartered in Ridgecrest, California that creates and distributes advanced technology including RITA and RADEKAL, the nationʼs leading Physicianʼs Productivity Tool, which has been shown to increase productivity by 30%. By combining both hardware and app development for worldwide medical use, Pertexa is an innovative brain trust, advancing disruptive transformational technologies for an evolving healthcare environment.
TeleMedicine Case Study 2
VSee & PTZOptics have just announced new UVC compatibility integration to provide camera Pan Tilt and Zoom control directly in VSee’s HIPAA compliant video conferencing software. UVC control means that VSee can control the PTZOptics camera operation using the same USB connection you use for video. This is the simplest way to deploy high quality telemedicine systems with camera control built directly into a familiar VSee interface for doctors and clinicians. The ability to see more detail be panning and zooming is crucial in telemedicine applications as doctors continue to push the boundaries of healthcare. The engineering work done by PTZOptics and VSee make the end user experience easier and more affordable to deploy.
The USB 3.0 models from PTZOptics (12X-USB and 20X-USB) are now officially compatible with VSee’s UVC Control Software. The ability to provide “far end camera control” to the remote users is ideal in the telemedicine industry by design. For a TeleMedicine cart this allows nurses and clinicians to roll the TeleMedicine video conferencing equipment up to any patient that needs a evaluation from a specialty doctor off site. The off site doctor then has Pan Tilt Zoom controls built directly into the VSee interface allowing the doctor more control over the evaluation experience. This is also ideal for simulation labs where an educational instructor can perform a “Virtual Tour” of the room without the need for expensive camera control systems or additional control cabling such as RS-232 or RS-485.
Overall UVC camera control is ideal for the TeleMedicine market for simplicity, ease of use and affordability. Because PTZOptics has UVC support built into every USB model you will see UVC control being used by more and more video conferencing software providers in the future.
VSee is the TeleMedicine industry’s most talked about new service. They provide “The World’s Largest Telemedicine Platform” to thousands of patients around the world. VSee has become so popular they are now the first TeleMedicine software being used at the international space station by NASA!
