NewTek, a Vizrt Group company, has launched the PTZ3, a pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera that uses the NDI|HX 3 standard built by NDI to provide an option for better video with reduced latency.
The PTZ3 is an IP-based pan-tilt-zoom camera that delivers high-quality, high-definition video to the network and interoperability with any of the thousands of applications that support NDI.
With single cable connectivity, the PTZ3 allows video professionals, technology managers, and A/V systems integrators to explore new ways to expand, grow, and evolve productions using their network, while simultaneously streamlining integration and installation by incorporating power over Ethernet.
William Waters, Head of Product Management, NewTek, said, “The PTZ3 overcomes some common challenges that have impacted PTZ usability in the past through an innovative approach to preset recalls, low latency and high quality with NDI |HX 3, and single cable connection.”
The first camera to support the new NDI|HX 3 standard, the PTZ3 is also equipped with professional-level audio connectivity.
Featuring a professional mini-XLR mic input connection in addition to a line level mini-jack, the PTZ3 delivers clean, balanced audio directly from the camera into the NDI network. Connected on the NDI network, the PTZ3 audio can be routed, mixed, enhanced, and distributed to thousands of devices and software.
