Test, you have full control of the camera via the PTZ functionality in the TriCaster. The joystick on any of the control surfaces can be used for manual control and preset recall.
Panasonic controllers like the RP50 and RP120 don't currently support a simple NDI control configuration the way our gear and apps do, but they can use Visca over a network connection. I haven't tested this, but I suspect that if you plug in the appropriate values on the surface, it might well work. You might need to use the remote control and OSD to configure the camera to use Visca over the network.Apart from controlling the camera from Newtek switchers, are there any other control methods available? I have many customers using Panasonic remote camera control panels.Martin
it will behoove Panasonic to consider adding direct NDI control support. It would make sense since they are offering NDI cams ...

Of course NewTek NDI cameras (and Pansonic ones with NDI support too) can be easily controlled in NewTek control surfaces with joysticks on them. I fully expect the reverse will also be true - that if Panasonic supports NDI control connections to their surfaces, our PTZ1 will work with them too.Can we apply that to NewTek also? I'll run out right now and buy a handful of NewTek PTZ NDI cameras if an NDI hardware controller were available. Any suggestions?.
We don't really discuss future plans (you'll have heard the maxim, "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans!") ... but I'l stick my neck out and say that - while our switcher surfaces already have pretty complete PTZ control features - I'd be surprised to see us announce a NewTek branded stand-alone PTZ control surface anytime in the immediate future.Thanks Steve. I guess my question really is NewTek going to release their own NDI camera controller for the PTZ1? Or will we have to depend on other manufacturers to fill that void?
