When do I need a Controller for my Live Streaming Setup? 

  • If you're controlling multiple PTZ cameras, a controller might be easier and more straight forward than a smart phone app/remote or screen controller
  • Some users prefer a tactile feel for their controller, rather than a touch screen
  • Controllers like the SuperJoy and 4th Generation IP controller include additional features and preset capabilities!

PTZOptics 4th Generation IP Controller

​The 4th Generation IP Controller is compatible with most PTZOptics cameras and can also operate other cameras as well, switching between serial or IP protocols.  This includes cameras from SONY and NewTek cameras among others.  It also allows for a great deal of control over your picture, and a very exciting online UI.

PTZOptics SuperJoy

This is a  PTZ camera joystick controller designed for smooth, efficient production workflows. The SuperJoy takes remote pan, tilt, and zoom camera operations to the next level in a simplified user interface with advanced controls for power users.
