Joystick Performance Modes


PTZ Camera Controller Software has 3 joystick performance modes available that come in handy when broadcasting, live streaming, or recording with your PTZ Cameras.


  • This mode allows for slower, more precise movements of the camera while using the Virtual or USB joystick. This mode limits top joystick speed by expanding joystick travel between speed level changes. This is great for when you want the precision of control and to move the camera at a slower speed range. Click on the Slow Mode button to switch to Slow Joystick Mode. There are three Slow modes available that you can cycle through.


  • It can be also called Slow Landing or Slow Start/Stop mode.  This mode allows for gradual speed acceleration of the camera while using the Virtual or USB joystick. This mode increases and decreases the speed of camera movement as you move the joystick. Soft mode eliminates any quick speedups in movement. Click on the Soft Mode button to switch to Soft Joystick Mode.


  • This mode limits camera movements to the X-axis only while using the Virtual or USB joystick. This is great for camera shots where you want a smooth pan from left to right only. Click on the X-Joy button to switch to X-Joy Joystick Mode.
