The live production landscape is rapidly changing, and church techs, among other live streaming teams, have to keep up! Luckily, some devices and cameras are guaranteed upgrades to the quality of a stream, especially PTZ cameras.
PTZ Cameras are a great way to elevate your live production by adding camera motions, and preset positions to boost the quality of your content. If you have a production with volunteers, or a limited staff running your production, a PTZ Camera controller can help make the job easier. For experienced producers, a ton of additional features can be achieved with a PTZ Camera Controller.
PTZ cameras have been becoming more and more popular along with the rise in streaming. They are great cameras for sports production, house of worship, education and more. Panasonics Pro PTZ cameras are excellent PTZ solutions and are an industry favorite.
BirdDog's P200 and A200 are some of the most versatile and high quality PTZ cameras available today, that fit into multiple workflows. The P200 has found a home in many live video settings including sports with its smooth movements, and SONY sensor. The A200 is an excellent camera for outdoor productions, as it is fully weather proof.
PTZ Cameras are now a fixture of many live streaming broadcast studios. This is due to their compact size, ease of use and ability to get unique camera angles, without multiple camera operators. Recently, Paul Richards from PTZOptics contributed to a great article detailing PTZ Camera's place in the broadcast landscape for newscaststudio.com.
