PTZLive™ Visual Preset Control Panel

PTZLive is a powerful preset management tool that gives you a bird's eye view visual representation of your camera presets. PTZLive utilizes a simple drag-and-drop method of simplifying preset management. It allows you to set a static or live video background from a live camera feed on the panel to show that camera's perspective view, and then drag presets on that camera's view panel to show their locations. It removes the need to remember which preset goes where and lets you organize multiple camera's presets and recall with one click.

PTZLive is often used as a way for technicians to simplify their environment. Volunteers and less skilled operators don't need to remember which cameras or presets they need to control - they can simply click on an image and go live with that camera's preset position.

PTZLive can be overlayed on top of anything on the screen. This allows you to overlay all of your presets and cameras over the entire screen.

PTZLive is also a stand alone PTZ Camera Controller and includes everything you need to control your cameras, including support for multiple cameras (each with its own set of presets), USB joystick support, and a lot of other control features.

It's the best Visual Tool to control your PTZ Cameras.
