PTZOptics 20x-SDI Video Conferencing Camera (Gray)
In addition to the HD-SDI output, the camera also has LAN, HDMI, and composite outputs, RS-232 input and output with daisy-chain capability, and an RS-485 port. The SDI, LAN, and HDMI outputs can be used simultaneously, at the same resolution which can be assigned via a dial on the real. The composite output can only be used by itself and at 480i/576i resolution. The LAN output is capable of streaming two H.264 RTSP signals, one in HD and one in SD, and allows for direct distribution to CDNs, streaming services, and other destinations, using only the camera. There's also a 3.5mm audio input specifically for embedding audio into the LAN stream so you can deliver both audio and video to your destination. The LAN port is for streaming and control only and does not support Power-over-Ethernet. Alternative to direct streaming from the LAN port you can also connect external devices for more advanced conferencing. You'll also find a USB 2.0 port among all the connections, but this is strictly for firmware updates.The camera can be controlled via the LAN port over a network, ONVIF over a network, and RS-232 via VISCA commands. RS-232 control includes control from any NewTek TriCaster, including any of the TriCaster Mini models. Simply connect multiple cameras to the TriCaster using DB9 cables and operate all of them from the TriCaster software. A TriCaster can also be used over IP control using 3rd-party software.
