AIDA Imaging PTZ-NDI Reviews

AIDA & BH specs lie. Only 30p max, not 60p.

By Brian
Rated 2 out of 5

I just bought this camera from B&H 9/16/22. The specs by both AIDA and BH claim this is a 1080p 60fps camera. They lie. It only does 30fps max, on all outputs, including HDMI output. I called AIDA tech support and the confirmed this is a hardware limitation that will not be fixed. The bad specs wasted my time and money and put my project behind schedule.

NDI works well, VISCA control over StreamDeck/Companion works well. One nice feature to have would be specify how scenes/presets are recalled. Rather than snapping as fast as possible, setting it to a 5s recall would be nice. Also, a way to choose what things are stored and recalled in presets. For example, I want pan, tilt, zoom, and focus stored, but don't store color/exposure info in this preset. That would be great.

the best
