4K Auto Tracking PTZ Camera
Live productions depend on high performance cameras and camera controllers.
Datavideo is introducing the 4K50/60p Ai tracking PTZ camera PTC-285, professional PTZ cameras help you capture your event. PTC-285 can be easily controlled via traditional RS-422 serial port, or IP remote control via DVIP (Datavideo proprietary protocol) or Sony VISCA over IP. This brand new 4K camera series supports dual streaming output for A/V market application, you can easily stream to Facebook (RTMPS), YouTube and dvCloud.
PTC-285 is a series of products, Datavideo also provides extended models such as PTC-285T 4K HDBaseT and NDI to meet the needs of different workflows.
Connect your PTC-285 to multiple devices in your workflow for flexibility. All the outputs are active at the same time.
Quick Access to Camera’s AI Tracking
You will be allowed direct access to auto tracking via various external controllers such as the supplied RMC-1 remote control and DVIP controllers (RMC-300A, RMC-180 MARK II and PTC View Assist).
In addition to camera controllers, you can also easily enable AI tracking on smart switchers which include KMU-200, SHOWCAST 100, etc as well as total solution systems like ZR-1 Zoom Room Classroom.
Custom Auto Object Tracking
If you are filming multiple people, you can designate a person for auto tracking. Once linked to the camera, only the designated person will be tracked, avoiding interferences such as the desks, people coming back and forth, large objects, etc.
Smart PTZ Speed Adaptation
The integrated PID algorithm is able to detect the movement speed of the identified object and automatically adjust the camera’s corresponding pan, tilt and zoom speeds in such a way that the lens movement will be smooth, avoiding common camera lens movement problems like jerky movements or unpredicted halts.
S-Shaped Speed Curve
Just like how the lift accelerates or decelerates, the camera lens movement will be smooth, avoiding jerky movements that are visible to naked eyes.
Simply Enable Auto Tracking with Your IR Remote Control
RMC-1 PTZ Controller. All you need is a remote control to set and control all four cameras and save the four presets.
Low Noise in Low Light
Advanced 3D noise reduction technology is also used to further reduce the noise while ensuring image sharpness.
Multiple Simultaneous Video Outputs
Supports simultaneous HDMI 2.0 and IP output up to 2160p 50/60 and also 3G-SDI output up to 1080p60/50.
Power over Ethernet
The PTC-285 supports PoE for easy installation. No need to find local power outlets or hire an electrician to install outlets wherever you want to mount your camera. Simply run a single CAT6 cable to power your PTC-285.
Green and red lights tally to show the preview and program status for broadcast applications.
Wide 80 Degree Field of View
PTC-285 provides a wide Field of View of 80 Degree, easily shooting all the scenes in the field.
