With the powerful camera automation tools, visual preset buttons, and our innovative PTZPad™ Visual Control Switchboard for advanced preset management, camera operators can now do more with less and create stunning live broadcasts without the TV studio budget.

The PTZJoy™ Controller supports Sony VISCA, Canon, Pelco, CGI and VISCA over IP protocols. It is compatible with all IP PTZ cameras connected to your IP network via a LAN, Wi-Fi, or WAN network as well as all Serial cameras connected to your computer via RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, or USB ports. 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. So no matter what type of Broadcasting PTZ camera you decide to use for your configuration, we have you covered.

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.

Rocosoft PTZJoy Controller can be used in three modes - Narrow, Wide, or Mini.

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.

Wide mode: The control panel is short and wide so it can be placed on the bottom of the screen, which is the most convenient place for the PTZ Controller with any Live Production Software.

Mini mode: The control panel is minimized so only the main controls are visible.
