Thread: Favorite PTZ Joystick?

    Favorite PTZ Joystick?

    We are very pleased with our Tricaster Mini System, using 4 Newtek NDI Cameras in our school auditorium. We'd like to add a dedicated joystick controller. Any suggestions, or tips regarding connection to the Tricaster Mini? It looks to be pretty easy, but I really try to defer to experience.

    If you Mini has a NewTek control surface (like the TC1SP) with a joystick, you can use that for PTZ control.

    If you are looking for a separate joystick controller for another operator, you can either use NDI Studio Monitor with a USB joystick connected to that Windows computer. Or use the Skaarhoj PTZ control units work the NDI-PTZ1 cameras.

    Thanks Kane. Those Skaarhoj look great, but we are on a pretty tight budget. May I assume that any joystick controller with USB would work, as long as it has VISCA protocol?

    With NDI Studio Monitor, any Windows joystick will work.

    On the TriCaster itself, USB joysticks are not supported.
