Written by on April 18, 2024

Hello, StreamGeeks community! As avid followers of the latest in video production technology, we’re excited to share some fantastic news from this year’s NAB Show. Our friends over at PTZOptics have done it again, taking home the coveted “Product of the Year Award” in the Remote Production category with their innovative system, PTZOptics Hive.

This year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas was buzzing with innovation, but one product stood out for its forward-thinking approach to remote camera control. PTZOptics Hive, a system we’ve been eagerly watching develop, has officially set a new standard in the industry. Here’s why we think it’s a big deal:

Why PTZOptics Hive Stands Out

For those who haven’t yet heard, PTZOptics Hive is a cloud-based platform that allows video producers and broadcasters to manage and control PTZ cameras from anywhere in the world. Yes, you read that right—anywhere! This means more flexibility and efficiency in producing high-quality video content, whether you’re in a studio, at home, or halfway across the globe.

Check out this quick video overview of PTZOptics Hive in action at NAB.


Paul Richards, Chief Revenue Officer at PTZOptics, mentioned at the award ceremony, “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what remote production can look like. PTZOptics Hive is not just about technology; it’s about making high-quality production accessible wherever our users are.”

Features That Impress

What really makes PTZOptics Hive a standout solution? It’s packed with features like auto-tracking, universal color correction, and broad compatibility with various camera brands like Sony, Panasonic, Lumens, and AVer. But it’s the intuitive user interface that might just be the clincher—ensuring that regardless of your tech expertise, you can produce broadcast-quality video effortlessly.

Tess Protesto, Content Team Manager for PTZOptics, shared her excitement with us: “We are thrilled to see PTZOptics Hive receive such prestigious recognition. It’s designed to meet the needs of modern producers who need tools as dynamic as the content they create. Winning this award at NAB motivates us to keep innovating.”

Coming Soon

Good news for those eager to get their hands on this technology—PTZOptics Hive is currently in BETA and will start shipping on June 3rd. For more details, visit their website at
