Description

Overview

This camera is a PTZ camera bundle kit based on the 8MP Sony IMX219 sensor, we have made some changes on the basis of the sensor. PTZ is an abbreviation for pan, tilt, and zoom and reflects the movement options of the camera, and a pan–tilt–zoom camera (PTZ camera) is a camera that is capable of remote directional and zoom control. A PTZ camera is not a still camera. Instead, it could move the camera and the lens, and that means a single camera can be used to monitor places that should be covered by multiple ones. You can save a lot of cost and time in purchasing and deploying the camera if a PTZ camera can handle the job. With its moveable lens, you will also be able to zoom the camera to see a specific area that you are interested in. To conclude, it’s “do more with less.”

Application

  • IoT cameras
  • Robot cameras
  • Sun Tracker
  • Wildlife cameras
  • Other security and surveillance projects, etc.
