    What kind of PTZ cameras?

    TriCaster will control some types of PTZ of cameras via IP, but the video still comes in over SDI (or analog).

    Its possible that some IP cameras might be able to be configured to work in a NET input, but the NET inputs do not have PTZ control.

    We have done just that same thing Kane. We still ate up an SDI input channel by using it for PTZ control and then sucked in the IP stream from the camera into the Net Input.

    We added in lots of macro programming to make the switching as seamless as possible.


    Answers to Bob's Questions:

    Panasonic HE60 PTZ cameras have IP streams available

    Panasonic He120 PTZ cameras are what we use the most since I feel they have a better picture but they do not have IP stream out capabilities. Their HD-SDI output looks fantastic though.


    Keep in mind that you are going to have a nice amount of bandwidth from this remote site back to your TriCaster. You might think about doing a Teradek encoder/decoder solution also. Add in a HDSDI embedder to bring audio into the upload to the TriCaster too. Audio out of the remote site's audio board into the embedder to combine with the SDI output to upload to your TriCaster. Just pulling the IP stream from a remote camera like the He60 will not give you audio.

    Your big key is going to be adequate bandwidth. Most importantly is upload bandwidth at the remote site.

    So if you're bringing in an IP stream from a PTZ camera you still have to eat up an SDI input to get PTZ control? Does it really make that SDI input otherwise unusable?

    And why isn't there PTZ control on the net input?

    It not using up a SDI input to control a camera, that is just what the camera PTZ controls are assigned to. There are many people that use camera 1 PTZ (or any other number) to control a camera connect on a NET input.

    OK, that's what I thought, thanks for confirming. I haven't used the TC's PTZ controls yet, but we're going to be testing soon.
