 Remote Cameras and Pan Tilt System

PTZ Studio cameras
Camera automation has allowed studios to be manned by either one operator or none at all, even sometimes unlike in the past where several operators were need. This is possible thanks to the Pan, Tilt & Zoom (PTZ) studio camera. Its automation can adopt numerous forms during the production process. A single operator can configure and adjust the PTZ camera to a desirable position by a simple click on the mouse buttons as opposed to having to adjust the camera, which tedious and time consuming manually.


The operator can even be able to control multiple PTZ cameras comfortably. Moreover, some PTZ cameras do not also need the operator in the first place as commands to the PTZ camera are attached to macros, and these respond to changes during the production process in real-time. PTZ cameras integrated with Power over Ethernet (PoE) together with a single cable for video, audio, and power are surely unlimited in simplifying broadcasting work.

PTZ cameras can also be used for live streaming. This helps the house of worship to reach a global audience, now that with the current advancement in technology, the world has become a global village. Compared to the ordinary cameras that are mounted on a tripod or carried by an operator that need a camera person to operate, PTZ cameras are fixed in one place and can be remotely operated say by a remote. This is a vast improvement from ordinary cameras.


This makes PTZ cameras a perfect fit for live streaming, say the house of worship sessions. But just like other cameras, you should look out for several things before using your PTZ to live stream. First, you should look at its outputs. These are very crucial in ensuring smooth live streaming sessions. Some come with a single output like NDI. Some would, however, have several outputs like SDI and HDMI.


You should make sure everything is connected well. Secondly, you should watch out for the video resolution and frame. On this, the higher the resolution, the better the PTZ camera is. A video resolution of at least 4K (or 1080p) will work just fine. Finally, the zoom option will come in handy as well.

It is good to note that PTZ studio cameras come as a package and not just the camera, as may be deduced from the arguments above. It usually comes with the controls, which may be a mouse, joystick, or even joggles which are used for zooming.
