House of Worship Solutions and Case Studies

 

As church congregations and schools experience the impact of social distancing restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing many of our clients resort to live-streaming their church services and lesson plans to keep their communities safe while still delivering their message.

We want to do our part to support our clients and communities by offering discounts to Houses of Worship and Educational Institutions on our software and hardware products. Our goal is to help people stay connected during a time that can be very isolating.

Our PTZ Camera Controller Software is a great addition to any church or school live streaming setup, allowing a single camera operator, A/V tech, or volunteer to effortlessly manage multiple PTZ cameras. Our software even has tools to control PTZ Cameras remotely over the internet.

If your church or school needs help with your live-streaming setup and managing your PTZ Cameras, our team is here to help.

[SNEAK PEAK] Rocosoft Macro Player – Control PTZ Cameras and vMix, TriCaster, Panasonic Live Production Switchers

Here's a sneak peak of the Rocosoft Macro Player, our newest camera automation feature that will be available in our new version release of PTZJoy PTZ Camera Controller Software coming soon.

Single camera operators will now be able to create some really dynamic productions and simplify their workflow with this awesome new tool.

Rocosoft Macro Player allows you to create scripts of commands, called Macros, and then use the Macro shortcut buttons in PTZJoy to execute complex sequences of actions with a single click of a button in PTZJoy or a keypress on a joystick or computer keyboard.

PTZJoy Macro Player has robust library of commands for nearly all PTZ Camera functions, as well as the ability to control any live production equipment that responds to HTTP and VISCA commands directly from PTZJoy Software. That means you will be able to control your live production and live streaming switchers such vMix, NewTek TriCaster, and Panasonic Switcher, run scripts, and send out custom HTTP requests and VISCA commands.

The possibilities of Rocosoft Software are endless.

In this video, we demonstrate how the Macro Player works and show some examples of Macros that we created to control our PTZ cameras along with our NewTek TriCaster in our studio.

Working with Presets

How To Set Up and Recall PTZ Camera Presets

Working with PTZ Camera Presets in PTZJoy PTZ Camera Controller Software

Rocosoft PTZ Camera Joystick Controller Software offers many preset management tools to set and recall PTZ camera presets and help simplify your workflow during your video production or live broadcast.

In this video, we demonstrate how easy it is to manage your camera presets and the different options you have for setting and recalling presets.

 

 

Manage your camera's presets from the Preset Tiles Panel, that let's you set up your most used presets with a visual tile and recall with the click of a button. If working with many presets, use the Preset Dialer to set and recall up to 510 presets.

With PTZJoy, you are not limited to the camera's internal preset limits - use external presets that are saved in the PTZJoy program to increase the amount of presets you can store and also manage the speed at which the camera moves during transitions between presets.

Manage your camera's and presets simultaneously using the Multi-Camera Direct Control Panel. With this tool, there is no need to switch between cameras to manage them, you have all your cam and preset views in one location for one click recall.

Use the PTZLive Preset Control Panel for preset recall using an innovative birds eye view visual layout of your camera's presets. Drag and drop your presets on a static or live video background, and recall with one click.

We also go over preset recall using a USB joystick, as well as using key board hotkeys on your computer keyboard.

How to Control PTZ Cameras with Rocosoft PTZ Camera Controller

How to Control PTZ Cameras

Rocosoft PTZJoy PTZ Camera Controller Software offers a variety of precise control options to control PTZ Cameras.

In this video, we discuss the different camera control options available in Rocosoft PTZ Camera Joystick Controller Software and demonstrate how to control cameras with our precise virtual joystick, keyboard hotkeys, with a trackball mouse, or with any connected USB joystick controller.

 

 

With PTZJoy PTZ Camera Controller, you don't need anything else to control your PTZ Cameras. Our Virtual Joystick Controller mimics a real joystick and offers precise pan/tilt/zoom controls with variable speed.

PTZJoy also has key board shortcuts programmed into the app, so you can actually control your cameras using your computer keyboard. Control pan and tilt movement, zoom in and out, switch between cameras, switch between presets, and more.

Use PTZBall Mode to control PTZ cameras using a laptop touchpad, trackball mouse, or simply using the movement of any regular mouse. In the video, we demonstrate how convenient it is to use a trackball mouse for PTZ camera control.

If you like the feel of a hardware joystick, you can connect ANY wired USB Joystick, wireless Bluetooth joystick, or gaming controller and use it as a PTZ Camera Controller. With simultaneous pan/tilt/zoom, 3 joystick performance modes, and custom button mapping, the result smooth and reliable camera control.
