This camera was a much-needed replacement for a house of worship. I just needed an HD PTZ camera with zoom and hdmi out. It has so much more than I needed, like SDI and ethernet outs. Glad that I can adjust output resolution to 720p. Some of my attached equipment couldn't handle 1080p.

What a difference

After initial difficulties getting the camera interface with my system, we finally went live. A beautiful picture. I will be adding a joy stick. It takes some time to adjust to the remote.

Powered up only once and its kaput!

Bought this item and it powered up only once. The second time, the device isn't powering on at all. Blue power led blinking. Standby blinking. PTZ optics service desk isn't responding.

I spent a lot of time waffling. It looked like the perfect solution for us, but it's not cheap. We finally caved and bought it. I only wish we had bought it sooner. Picture quality is great, easy to use and control with an external remote controller. If you don't know how to setup networks, the setup could be a pain. Fortunately I have a friend who was able to help me get everything up and running. So, setup can be a pain, but the end result is well worth it. Plus, small bonus: PoE is a really great addition.
