IMX219 – PTZ Camera

Arducam PTZ camera (SKU:B01678MP) is an advance IMX219 camera for Jetson boards. Different from the standard fixed focus lens, the Arducam PTZ IMX219 camera uses a zoom lens which has x4 optical zoom capability. With the PTZ controller board, you can connect two servos to move the camera with two-dimensional movement. The IRCUT control also helps both the daylight and night vision.
