Automation with PTZJoy Studio VISCA
PTZJoy Studio is all about precise control and automation. You are able to automate your cameras using our most powerful automation tools.
With AutoPan, you can set your cameras to automatically pan left and right on a given interval. All you need to do is activate it, and your camera will begin panning. You can change the interval (seconds) on which your camera moves.
As with AutoPan, PresetScan automatically calls each of your camera's presets on a given interval. So, every x amount of seconds, PTZJoy will call your camera's next preset.
You can also schedule timed tasks for your cameras to complete using our Task Scheduler. Multiple cameras can be given a task to complete at specified times, or they can all do the same task at the same time.
With our TimeLine Task Scheduler, you can create a timeline of tasks for your cameras to complete. You can send commands to multiple cameras at once, loop the task list, along with choose just about any action for you cameras to complete.
Get rid of annoying and repetitive joystick movements with our Camera Tracer. Camera Tracer allows you to record your joystick movements, save them, and then play them back. This is perfect for those that repeat Joystick movements, as you can play the recorded movements back for any camera. All you do is choose the starting preset, then click play.
Visualize Your Setup with PTZPad
PTZJoy Studio includes the basic version of PTZPad, our powerful software extension that adds a visual component to your setup.
The idea of PTZPad is to give you a visual representation of your cameras and their presets. In PTZPad, you can drag-and-drop presets onto a static or live background, and you can do this for multiple cameras. Each camera has its own preset button set, and each preset draws a line to the camera.
For example, you can set the background image to an image of a church. Drag-and-drop your Camera 1 to the top of the church where the camera is actually located. Then, drag-and-drop each preset to its respective location. If Preset 1 is set to zoom in on the choir, drag-and-drop the Preset 1 box onto the choir location. Now, repeat this process for your Camera 2, which is located behind the audience.
Once it's time for you to start managing your cameras, you can pull up PTZPad and simply click on the location you want your camera to go to. It's as simple as that!
Now imagine doing those steps over a live background, say of a concert. You can dynamically move the preset buttons around as you need it.
