PTZ Cameras

Robotic control of PTZ cameras continues to improve all the time, so remain connected with the manufacturer of your PTZ camera to receive information about the latest firmware updates. New firmware updates can unlock new capabilities inside of your camera that can increase the capabilities of your device. In this chapter, you will learn about […]

It’s finally time to discuss the art of PTZ camera operations. In many ways, PTZ camera operations follow the same basic principles as camera operators have always done. In this chapter, you will learn about shot composition, viewer perspectives, and camera movement from the viewpoint of a remote camera operator.  Pan:  A panning motion is […]

Every PTZ camera operator should be concerned with getting the best possible picture from their cameras. This is done, in part, by adjusting the camera’s exposure and additional settings to adjust the picture quality. As a PTZ camera operator, you should know your camera and communicate with your team about basic parameters.  An ideal starting […]

One of the big values of PTZ cameras is their size compared to traditional over-the-shoulder broadcast cameras. Large broadcast cameras generally require tripods and even platforms in production spaces. Each traditional broadcast camera not only takes up a large amount of space, but also requires a cameraman. With PTZ cameras, a single camera operator can […]

PTZ cameras can be controlled in so many different ways, choosing your preferred option is somewhat of a personal preference. The only limitation you will come up against is the connection types that are available on your PTZ camera. Many professional PTZ camera operators will tell you that they prefer a dedicated joystick controller. Other […]

PTZ cameras can be controlled by IR remotes, joystick controllers, smartphones, and a variety of software solutions. IR remote controls usually offer a limited set of basic features for controlling the camera and recalling presets. IR remote controls are easy to use for close-range camera control but generally do not work when the camera is […]

Most PTZ cameras are distinguished by their optical zoom and video output options. It’s worth noting that motorized robotic heads are available to gain control over traditional broadcast cameras. While robotic “PTZ heads” can turn a traditional camera into a remotely controllable solution, they are not actually cameras, and therefore not included in this book. […]

You can find PTZ cameras in many popular places including TV shows, courtrooms, houses of worship, schools, and event venues. PTZ cameras are often a crucial component of video production systems for the following: Broadcast Television Houses of Worship Sporting and Event Production Education: Distance Learning Corporate Training Live Events: Musical Performances, Theater, Conferences Broadcast […]

This chapter will outline each significant part of a PTZ camera. Starting with the motor, you will learn about important camera features such as lenses, image sensors, installation connections, resolution dials, power connections, video connections, control connections, and inputs for audio. PTZ camera motors There are a few main types of PTZ camera motors including […]

Though it has become a buzzword in the tech industry, many people may not know what the term “PTZ camera” means. PTZ cameras are pan, tilt, and zoom robotic video cameras that allow operators to control the camera remotely. PTZ cameras can pan horizontally, tilt vertically, and zoom in on a subject using an optical […]
