Description

PTZJoy™ Software - Do more with less

PTZJoy is a PTZ Camera controller software that is very low-profile without compromising on usability. It can be located anywhere on any screen and pinned to a spot in tall, wide, or mini mode, or conveniently minimized to the taskbar to continue doing its job in the background.

It maintains its low-profile UI when used with any live production system, like NewTek's TriCaster, vMix, Livestream, or Wirecast. Or, it can provide precise multi-camera control on any Windows based device, such as a PC, Laptop, or Tablet, providing not only direct camera control but also far-end camera control from any device with a web browser, such as iPhone, Android, Mac, etc.

PTZJoy allows you to control multiple cameras simultaneously, along with managing each cameras' specific settings and even managing each camera's presets individually with a single click of the mouse.

The PTZJoy Controller is compatible with all IP PTZ cameras via a LAN, Wi-Fi, or WAN network as well as all Serial cameras connected to the computer locally via RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, or USB ports and those connected over the network via Serial to Ethernet adapters. That includes Sony, NewTek, Panasonic, Canon, PTZOptics, Pelco, Hitachi, HuddlecamHD, Vaddio, Lumens, Datavideo, Bolin, AJA, Marshall, Aver, and other IP and Serial Port PTZ Cameras.

Users can control cameras using a single or multiple USB Joysticks, our on-screen Virtual Joystick, simple keyboard shortcuts, directional buttons, or from any device over the Internet using our Web Remote.

Designed to be used with the industry’s top live streaming solutions and professional robotic cameras, this software unveils the true possibilities for robotic camera management.


Our PTZJoy Controller Software offers the best camera control technology available in the industry with functionality that you just can’t get with any other software product or hardware controller on the market.
