Overview

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.”

Currently, NVIDIA official has released the NVIDIA Jetson Orin series developer board. Based on it, we have also adapted the camera into NVIDIA Jetson Orin kernel.

KERNEL CAMERA DRIVER USED

This camera relies on kernel drivers to work – one kernel version, one camera driver. Please refer to the Supported JetPack Version for Different NVIDIA Jetson Platforms to ensure compatibility.

Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) Camera Is Finally Coming to The Raspberry Pi Thanks to Arducam

We all know that there is a CSI connector on the Raspberry Pi to facilitate the connections of a small camera to the processor, but how should we facilitate the small camera itself? As a professional camera manufacturer and solution provider, Arducam has been obsessed with this question for the last 6 years, and came […]
