Rocosoft PTZJoy Controller Software - Do more with less
Precisely control all your streaming and broadcasting PTZ cameras.
Rocosoft PTZ Controller Software will allow you to add a professional quality PTZ controller and automation tools to your streaming or live production system. You will have simultaneous Pan-Tilt-Zoom control with no latency using any USB joystick as well as the ability to program the joystick buttons to your liking - switch between cameras, call on presets, control Iris, Focus, and do tons of other things. You will be able to use one of four joysticks, connected to the computer as well as to have four profiles with your own button mapping scenarios per joystick. It also gives you ability to use a Multi-Joystick setup - one USB joystick per camera.You can also use the on-screen Virtual Joystick, directional control buttons with a speed slider, Keyboard shortcuts, or use a Mouse, Trackpad or TrackBall as a joystick. You can control your cameras from anywhere with any device that has a Web Browser. Like iPhone, iPad, Mac, Android, Tablet, Etc. Along with using internal camera presets, we also store camera settings externally in the software. The External camera presets can be called with variable speed, so you can select how fast the camera will move between preset positions. The Preset Visualets - Visual Preset Tiles are fully customizable so you can name your presets as you want and use your own graphics or images as background. The Snip button gives you an easy way to cut an area off the screen to save images for tiles. The Multi-Cam Direct Control Panel allows preset management of selected cameras directly with no camera switching required. The PTZ Visual Pad Controller with Preset Visualizer is a Visual Preset Control Panel that is designed to simplify the logistics of preset switching. PTZ Visual Controller allows you to create a visual camera preset layout for one-click preset recall. It gives you immediate visual access to your camera positions and preset locations so you can SEE exactly what preset each camera is going to next, instead of having to remember presets by number or name. You can replace the background of the Panel for each camera or use the PTZLayer feature to make the panel see-through, so the PTZ Visual Controller can be layered on top of any live video stream window, like VLC Player or NDI Studio Monitor to achieve Live Video background. The built-in Video Monitor allows you to use any USB Webcam, Video Grabber, or a UVC camera for Live Video Background directly in the Preset Visualizer window. Camera and steaming system management can be automated with AutoPan, PresetScan, Task Scheduler, Timeline Task Manager, Camera Tracer, and Macro Runner. AutoPan will allow you to move a specific camera left and right on a cycle with a given interval and desired speed. PresetScan will allow you to move a specific camera between presets on a given interval. Task Scheduler will allow you to schedule tasks for your cameras to complete at a defined time. Timeline Task Manager will allow you to create a timeline of complicated tasks for your cameras to complete. Commands can be broadcasted (let's say all cameras go to Preset3 at a specific moment). The Timeline task lists are saved as files that can be replayed and looped. Camera Tracer will allow you to record the camera movements. The traces are saved as files and can be replayed and looped. The Macro Runner allows sending multiple commands on a timeline with the press of just one button. The Macro Commands can be sent to the PTZJoy itself, vMix, TriCaster, Black Magic, Telestream, and all other streaming, lighting, audio, and live production systems that accept external IP commands. The included API tool allows other Production Systems to access PTZ Camera control by sending HTTP Requests to PTZJoy over IP. HotKeys keyboard shortcuts can be used with Macros and programmable keyboards (like X-Keys or Genovation) for controlling cameras with macro commands based on the keybord ASCII codes.
