Low-Latency PTZ Joystick
This joystick is now driven by the SONY VISCA Over IP Procotol and therefore has eliminated the latency involved with older joystick controllers. The joystick is ready for any professional video application with six camera switching hotkeys and access to even the finest camera detail settings over IP. Once your camera is connected to your LAN (Local Area Network) this PTZ joystick can be set up to control it. With the ability to quickly access up to 6 cameras with a single button press and over 100 camera with a simple process, you can control an advanced production or an entire building full of PTZOptics cameras.
This IP joystick controller is ideal for audiovisual and IT professionals who need to remotely manage multiple PTZ cameras on their network.
PTZ Optics has made camera control easy enough for volunteers and advanced enough for broadcast professionals. The camera control experience with a joystick is ideal for volunteers and those new to PTZ camera operation. Providing novice users with a pre-configured PTZ joystick controller is perhaps the best way to get new producers up and running. The simple button layout is intuitive and ideal for teaching the concepts of remote camera operation in your broadcast club or on the field.
Tip: Setup 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. In this way, your 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 cameras motor speeds for this action.
Watch the short setup video to see how easy it is to use PoE (Power Over Ethernet) to power this joystick and connect it to your network. Once connected, you can remotely control multiple PTZ cameras using a single ethernet network connection to the PTZ joystick controller.
