No matter what type of PTZ camera you decide to use for your configuration, we have you covered. With options for VISCA, Canon, Pelco Serial Port protocols and CGI and VISCA over IP protocols, our software solutions support virtually all professional broadcasting PTZ cameras available on the market today.

Narrow mode: The control panel is narrow and tall. It can be conveniently moved to the side of the screen and out of the way of the main video application.
