What is an EPTZ Camera?
EPTZ cameras are electronic pan, tilt and zoom cameras. Instead of a robotic movement, built-in EPTZ functionality simulates pan, tilt, and zoom operations inside of a large resolution pixel space. For example, in a 4K image space using EPTZ, users have the ability to create multiple unique 1920 by 1080 pixel scenes.

Dual Output SDI ZCams
With two unique SDI outputs, your production can effectively cut between wide and tight camera views from the same camera. Zoom in without ever compromising 1080p and 720p quality. Safely maximize the perfect zoom levels for your projects every single time and get the most out of your 4k image with built-in sensors and presets you can recall at the touch of a button.

Ultra HD Video
Closeups look crisper and even more realistic whether you’re recording, live streaming or video conferencing with a large UHD CMOS sensor and camera lens and digitally enhanced EPTZ.

Versatile Control Options
Take control of your camera’s EPTZ functionality with our free PTZOptics camera control software. Or, use other software solutions to control this camera including OBS, Livestream Studio, Wirecast, vMix, mimoLive, and more that support PTZOptics VISCA over IP. Using the NDI model, users can control the camera with NDI Studio and many other NDI production solutions. If you prefer a hardware solution, check out one of our hardware joystick controllers such as our IP joystick, serial joystick, or the SuperJoy. Try our free IP control application for Mac or PC, our open-source control software on GitHub, and our OBS plugin here. Mobile device control options are available here.
