VISCA PTZ Camera Controller PTZJoy Studio VISCA

Precisely control your streaming and broadcasting VISCA PTZ cameras.

Rocosoft PTZJoy Studio VISCA Controller will allow you to add a professional quality joystick controller to your system by using any USB Joystick. You will have simultaneous Pan-Tilt-Zoom control with no latency 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 included Multi-Cam Direct Control Panel allows preset management of selected cameras independently of the main panel.

PTZ Visual Controller is designed to simplify the logistics of preset switching. It 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 position each camera is going to, 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 window can be layered on top of any live video streaming 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, or a UVC camera for Live Video Background directly.

Camera management can be automated with Auto Pan, Preset Scan, Task Scheduler, Timeline Task Player, and Camera Tracer. Task Scheduler will allow you to schedule tasks for your cameras to complete at a defined time.Timeline Task Player will allow you to create a timeline of complicated tasks for your cameras to complete. Camera Tracer will allow you to record the camera movements. The Traces are saved as files and can be replayed and looped.

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 keyboard ASCII codes.

Precise Camera Control

With PTZJoy, you are able to easily and precisely control your PTZ camera's pan, tilt, and zoom, all with variable speed. Controlling cameras with PTZJoy is extremely fluid and responsive, regardless of how you choose to control cameras.
Our on-screen Virtual Joystick accurately recreates the movement produced by a real joystick controller, providing smooth camera control all around.

Add Joystick Control to Anything

With PTZJoy, you can use any USB joystick to control your cameras with Variable speed. Our USB Joystick control is smooth and reliable.
Not only that, but you can also configure every single button on your USB Joystick to do a large host of tasks with your VISCA cameras.

Easily Manage Presets

PTZJoy makes preset management much simpler for the user by adding a visual component to preset management. Each preset can be assigned a picture, which can then be easily recalled with a single click. Preset setting and recalling is a very quick, one-click process, and the speed at which the camera moves when a preset is called can be controlled.

Multi-Camera Management

With PTZJoy, you can seamlessly manage multiple cameras, each with its own set of presets and settings. Switching between cameras is a simple one-click process.
Not only that, but you can also mix and match VISCA camera brands and protocols. For example, Cam1 can be Panasonic, Cam2 - Sony, Cam3 - PTZOptics, Cam4 - Datavideo but PTZJoy will provide seamless on-the-fly switching between them.
