With 3 editions of PTZJoy IP PTZ Camera Controller Software, you can choose the level that fits your needs. Each edition includes core features which are integrated across all three editions, but have different feature sets tiered to varying video production setups, camera operator preferences, and technical requirements. Each edition builds on the previous one, adding more features, tools, and functionality as you go. You can always upgrade to the next edition if your camera control needs change or you need more functionality.

 

Easy IP PTZ Camera Management

  • Control multiple IP Cameras directly from a PC or live production system through a simple network connection - no need to physically connect cameras to a computer.
  • Connect up to 8 IP cameras and manage each camera’s presets and settings individually.
  • Switch between cameras using the Camera Visualet buttons that allow you to name your cameras and set a custom graphic to take the guess work of which camera you are working with.

Precise PTZ Camera Control

  • Control your cameras with a virtual on-screen joystick that mimics a real joystick, keyboard hotkeys, button control, a laptop touchpad, or trackball mouse.
  • Connect any wired USB joystick, wireless Bluetooth joystick, or gaming joystick to control your cameras. With simultaneous pan/tilt/zoom, 3 joystick performance modes, custom button mapping, and the ability to connect multiple joysticks to control individual cameras, the result is smooth and reliable camera control.

Efficient Preset Management

With user friendly preset management tools and innovative visualization features, camera operators can simplify the logistics of preset switching and get rid of cumbersome preset lists.

  • Easily set and recall up to 255 internal and 255 external presets and control preset recall speed to create an efficient workflow during a live broadcast.
  • Visual Preset buttons make it simple to organize your most used presets with a custom image.
  • The Multi-Camera Direct Control Panel puts your most important cameras and presets in one location and lets you manage multiple cameras and their presets simultaneously with one click recall.

Far-End Camera Control from any Device

The WebRemote gives you the ability to control your cameras from the web browser of any PC, Mac, Smartphone, or tablet and allows for quick and convenient far-end control of cameras on the go.

  • Control your cameras from ANYWHERE in the world.
  • Works with iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets, Windows phones and tablets, Google phones and tablets, Mac computers, PCs, and all other devices with a web browser.
  • Supports all web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, etc.

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.

  • Set a static or live video background on the panel to show that camera's perspective view, and then drag-and-drop presets on that camera's view panel to show their locations.
  • Removes the need to remember which preset goes where and lets you visually organize multiple camera presets and recall with one click.
  • 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. Great for layering over TriCaster or vMix input screens and managing presets live.

Camera Automation Tools Simplify Workflow

PTZJoy offers a variety of PTZ camera automation tools in our PRO and STUDIO editions. Single operators can create some really dynamic productions by creating shortcuts that automate camera movements to save time, simplify workflow, and eliminate error. Managing multiple cameras during a live production doesn't have to be hard or confusing, not if you have the right tools.

  • Create recordings of camera movements with the Camera Tracer
  • Create playlists for cameras to execute commands with the Timeline Task Manager
  • Set cameras to run through presets or auto pan
  • Create macro shortcuts to control vMix, TriCaster, Panasonic switchers, and PTZ Cameras

Other Tools and Features

PTZJoy also includes many tools for users to change exposure settings, change software settings, manage IP Settings, access the camera’s OSD menu, change joystick modes, toggle to X Joystick (pan only), and more. You can easily swap between interfaces using the Tools button, minimizing or expanding the software to show the tools you need or changing the layout of interface to integrate seamlessly onto live-production equipment such as a TriCaster or vMix . The software features touch screen device support, giving you the option to use a touch screen monitor and flawlessly control the cameras.
