SKAARHOJ PTZ Fly Overview

Get fingertip control of PTZ camera movement with the PTZ Fly with Blue Pill Inside from SKAARHOJ. Featuring a full-size three-axis joystick, this compact controller makes it easy to pan, tilt, and rotate your cameras. Also featured are four backlit encoder knobs with wide-screen OLED displays and six programmable four-way multifunction keys for presets and camera selection.

It employs Blue Pill Inside technology, meaning that the hardware of a Blue Pill is available inside your controller instead of combining a stand-alone Blue Pill with a separate UniSketch. It allows you to connect to an unlimited number of controllers and customize the interfaces. PoE technology simplifies setup by enabling signals and power to travel via a single cable.

Can this unit operate Avipas AV-1081W cameras connected through the RJ45/lan connection? ? Thanks.
Asked by: Chris H.
Based on the protocol specs available, there should be no issues with operating the camera using this controller. However, we highly recommend verifying with the manufacturer on their supported cameras, as oftentimes, with PTZ workflows, there may be some additional aspects to consider.

Will this pan, tilt and zoom at the same time with a PTZoptics camera? The Huddlecam joystick I have now you can only do one at a time so it’s robotic and not very smooth.

It does not allow simultaneous pan, tilt and zoom with PTZ Optics cameras.
