PTZOptics PT20X-NDI Overview

The 20X-NDI Broadcast and Conference Camera, in white, from PTZOptics, allows you to output up to a 1080p60 signal simultaneously via HDMI, SDI, and NDI or IP outputs (NDI and IP share the same RJ45 port). The NDI protocol, NewTek's innovative IP technology, gives you low-latency access to audio and video devices anywhere on your network for various A/V applications. You won't be restricted to sources connected directly to a single system. The 20X-NDI comes with a NewTek NDI license, so you're set to go right out of the box. The camera also has a composite output that can be used on its own (without any of the other outputs at the same time) to deliver 576i/480i resolution.

The 20X-NDI has a 4.4 - 88.5mm lens providing a 20x zoom range which is best used in midsize settings. The NDI versions of the PTZOptics 20x cameras are ideal for streaming applications, houses of worship, sports streaming, live productions and events, and when cable runs might be an issue (when you'd rather run Ethernet cables instead of coax). The camera does well in low-light conditions owing to a fast f/1.8 - 2.8 lens aperture and minimum illumination requirement of only 0.5 lux. On top of this, built-in wide dynamic range and 2D and 3D noise reduction further enhance the broadcast experience. The camera is completely open-source so developers can customize everything as they prefer using simple HTML.

The 20X-NDI can be powered over PoE or using the included power supply. It offers RS-232 and RS-485 serial control, an audio line-in for HDMI and NDI/IP streams, and 10 presets via the included IR remote control or 255 via serial or IP control.

question

Does this works with Wirecast? How do we control the PTZ, does it comes with a software? and controllable all in one Ethernet Cable (Control PTZ and Video Feed)
Asked by: JONATHAN GEORGE
Yes, the latest version of Wirecast does support NDI. Once you connect this camera to your network through an Ethernet Cable it will send the video feed and allow you to control the camera through IP. You will be able to also connect the PTZOptics IP Joystick GEN2 to your network, once you have this you will be able to control the camera. There are also software and app options available from PTZ Optics directly.https://bhpho.to/2kvzdfO

question

What is the difference between this camera and the NewTek NDIHX-PTZ1 NDI PTZ Camera?
Asked by: Andrew
Please keep in mind that base PTZOptics models will require a firmware upgrade to add NDI support. This upgrade is available as a secondary SKU you will need to purchase.

The review here said: "The PTZOptics cameras are ...

The review here said: "The PTZOptics cameras are 60 or 30 frames per second. Broadcast cameras are 59.94 0r 29.97 frames per second. You cannot mix with broadcast cameras without a frame converter for each camera". This shouldn't matter though if it is being used as an NDI input? I have other cameras going though into basic capture cards and or an Item with its own setting of say 29.97 rather than 30, but shouldn't it still be read by OBS or Vmix?
Asked by: Kevin
If connecting to a production switcher through HDMI or SDI, this will matter if the switcher requires Drop Frame Time Code, which is what 59.94 is compared to 60 fps. But for NDI and streaming on OBS, this should not matter.

Does the model PT20X-SDI-GY include NDI or does it require the firmware upgrade like the PT20X-SDI-GY-G2?
Asked by: David
It does not. You need to add the NDI upgrade to the SDI model, B&H # PT20XSDIGYG2. However this model, BH #PT20XNDIGY, comes with the NDI already.
