A PTZ camera, unlike fixed dome security cameras, can move left and right (pan) or up and down (tilt). These security cameras can also zoom in and out. To operate these security cameras a keyboard and a receiver or control management software is a requirement.
By using the keyboard or control management software, a PTZ camera can be programmed to view specific areas. The user can program a series of motions for the sucurity camera to follow. E.g.: A PTZ security camera can be programmed to sweep an area at any time interval.
The total zoom capacity of a PTZ security camera is actually a combination of digital zoom (uses electronics to zoom in and out) and optical zoom (uses lens motion). By multiplying the digital zoom by the optical zoom, the total zoom of a security camera can be calculated.
The advantage of a PTZ camera is that it can efficiently move in all directions including 360 degrees rotation. This function of the PTZ security camera is ideal for monitoring any large perimeter area. E.g.: Security complexes,factories or Wine Estates. By installing PTZ cameras on your perimeter areas you are also enabling your security staff to monitor with greater efficiency.
PTZ cameras are also equipped with an auto-focus feature. The auto-focus feature will auto sense the right object or area and bring it into focus. Some PTZ cameras are also equipped with a smoky glass shield. This feature makes it difficult for the perpetrator to see where the camera is focused.
The PTZ security camera is ideal for security control rooms, which are monitored by qualified CCTV Operators.
