    PTZ1 vs PTZ2 differences?

    Maybe I missed it somewhere, but what are the key differences between the PTZ1 and PTZ2 cameras?
    Tricaster 460AE3 + Mini 4K
    Flypack: Router, switch, backup encoders, captioning devices, audio mixer, UPS, etc
    Cameras: Sony Z280, Z150, PTZ1, Multiple Spark & Bird Dog converters

    The PTZ1 was using some components that were no longer available, the camera needed to be refreshed. The PTZ2 comes with the lens hood, but otherwise you will find that the features and capabilities of these two cameras are the same.

    The PTZ2 does use NDI-HX2 and doesn't require the NDI-HX driver like the PTZ1 does. This can allow for the for NDI features like groups or discovery server support in future firmware (which is not possible with HX1), however these features are not currently in the shipping camera firmware.

    Your software application does have to be running NDI version 4 libraries for the PTZ2 to be compatible (NDI 4 is the minimum version to support HX2).
