Many new PTZ and traditionally industrial camera releases have given us cameras with cine-like features, such as embedded auto interfaces and higher resolutions, and these new releases from PTZOptics are no exception to this pattern. From its quiet unveiling of the Studio Pro, to the release of the Move 4K cameras with 12x and 20x zoom, PTZOptics is expanding the capacity of these cameras beyond the conference and industrial space and into content-creation venues.
Studio Pro: The Box Camera and Camcorder Hybrid
With an integrated top handle and included LED light, the Studio Pro has the appearance of a camcorder but with advanced streaming capabilities. The Studio Pro features a 72.5° field of view, 12x optical zoom, and 16x digital zoom for the ultimate framing flexibility. Switch between landscape and portrait orientations for livestreaming via IP and NDI, or output via HDMI or USB to a variety of social media platforms. Its time-of-flight autofocus sensor even gives you the ability to create highly desired bokeh in your visuals. It’s an all-in-one solution for content creators wanting to participate in webinars or stream to platforms like Twitch and Instagram with professional, 1080p60 HD image quality.
Move 4K PTZ Cameras: 4K Video and Auto-Tracking
Available in 12x and 20x optical zoom with gray and white color variations, the Move 4K PTZ cameras are suited for hands-free livestreaming applications. Capable of capturing UHD 4K or 1080p video at 60 fps and outputting it via its SDI, HDMI, USB, or NDI and IP livestreaming connections, the Move cameras can deliver high-quality video with low noise to a wide variety of sources. The cameras are also equipped with auto-tracking to follow their subject without remote adjustment, perfect for unboxing videos or web presentations where your speaker might move around the studio or stage. The 12x version has a horizontal 72.5° field of view and the 20x version has a horizontal 60.7° field of view for further framing flexibility.
