Key Features
  • Simultaneous 1080p via HDMI, SDI, NDI/IP
  • Composite Output (576i/480i)
  • 30x Optical Zoom
  • 0.5 Lux Minimum Illumination
The 30X-NDI Broadcast and Conference Camera, in white, from PTZOptics, allows you to output up to a 1080p signal simultaneously via HDMI, SDI, and NDI or IP outputs (NDI and IP share the same RJ45 port). You can select 1080p60 for SDI and HDMI and up to 1080p30 for NDI/IP, or 1080p60 for NDI/IP and 1080p30 for SDI and HDMI. 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 30X-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.

PTZOptics PT30X-NDI Overview

The 30X-NDI Broadcast and Conference Camera, in white, from PTZOptics, allows you to output up to a 1080p signal simultaneously via HDMI, SDI, and NDI or IP outputs (NDI and IP share the same RJ45 port). You can select 1080p60 for SDI and HDMI and up to 1080p30 for NDI/IP, or 1080p60 for NDI/IP and 1080p30 for SDI and HDMI. 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 30X-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 30X-NDI has a 4.4 - 132.6mm lens providing a 30x zoom range which is best used in large settings, such as gymnasiums and auditoriums. The NDI versions of the PTZOptics 30x 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 conferencing experience. The camera is completely open-source so developers can customize everything as they prefer using simple HTML.

The 30X-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.

Key Features

  • Simultaneous 1080p output via HDMI, SDI, and NDI/IP (SDI and HDMI at 1080p60 and NDI/IP at up to 1080p30, or NDI/IP at 1080p60 and SDI and HDMI at 1080p30)
  • Low-latency NDI video
  • Composite output (576i/480i)
  • 30x zoom
  • Minimum illumination requirement of only 0.5 lux, for better low-light performance
  • Built-in wide dynamic range and 2D/3D noise reduction
  • PoE support
  • RS-232 and RS-485 serial control
  • Audio line-in for HDMI and NDI/IP streams
  • 10 presets via the included IR remote control or 255 via serial or IP control
  • H.264, H.265, and MJPEG streaming over RJ45 port
  • Open-source design

1080p video has an image size of 1920 x 1080 ...

1080p video has an image size of 1920 x 1080 pixels which is 2.07 MP and the PTZOptics 30X-NDI camera has a 2.07 MP image sensor. What advantage is there to an 8.5 MP image sensor in a camera like the Vaddio RoboSHOT 30E HDBT which is also only a 1080p camera? I understand the need for an 8.3 MP image sensor if I were doing UHD 4K at 3840 x 2160 pixels, but I only need 1080p, so isn't a higher pixel count overkill? In the end, 1080p is 2.07 MP so more pixels will not give better resolution, right? Also, since the sensor on the PTZOptics 30X-NDI is 2.7" doesn't the lower pixel count mean larger pixels which translates to better low light performance on a comparably sized sensor?
Asked by: Daniel
The general rule of thumb is that the higher the quality you have available to you at the start, the better the quality for the end result. The 8.5mp sensor will result in better images at the end.

Am I correct that with NDI|HX I just connect ...

Am I correct that with NDI|HX I just connect these cameras to a Gigabit Ethernet Switch with POE, such as the Ubiquiti Networks UniFi 16-Port Managed Gigabit PoE Switch with SFP, along with my production workstation and internet router and I am good to go? Would that would enable video streaming, camera control, and POE over one cable with CAT 6 cabling? Does that eliminate the need for a video capture card such as the Magewell Pro Capture​ Quad HDMI? Is there any other hardware needed to stream live to the internet with software such as vMix HD Live Production, Streaming & Mixing Software?
Asked by: Daniel
Yes you are correct. If you connect this camera to a Gigabit Ethernet Network Switch with POE you will be able to facilitate Power, Camera Control, and Stream Video over a single Cat 6 Cable. It eliminates the need for Capture devices like the Magewell Pro Capture Quad. Your computer will capture the video across the network as long as: 1. Your computer is connected to the same network switch as the cameras 2. You are using a software capable of capturing NDI such as VMix or Wirecast

What is the distance range for zoom and focus in analog mode?
Asked by: HT
The zoom and focus capabilities of this device are for consistent with 30x capacity and are always optical (analog). There is no exact distance calculation that can be made, as this device can be used in spaces as small as a classroom, in a house of worship, or in a large arena/stadium, and the same ratio of 30x would apply, with the same relative results.

How is the audio? Can you use an external mic?
Asked by: Ryan
While this has a Line In for Audio a camera like this is really meant to be a part of an overall system where you would join the video and audio together before the recording or stream. It is meant to be used within a system that has an audio mixing board.
