"NDI is the most adopted IP technology around and we're proud one of our top-selling PTZ cameras is joining their ecosystem," said Eugene Bocharov, CEO and president, BZBGEAR. NDI is a royalty-free technology allowing video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a network. Every source device now becomes a destination while costly cable runs, direct connections, and infrastructure upgrades are no longer required.
The BG-VPTZ-HSU3 series is equipped with a 3.5 mm audio jack allowing the cameras to embed audio such as an audio mixer output or powered mic directly into the video stream. For quality control, 2D/3D noise reduction functions are included.
The PTZ cameras support H.264/H.265 video compression formats. Live footage from the cameras can be broadcast in ONVIF, RTSP, and RTMP IP streaming protocols. With the RTMP protocol, the cameras will be able to stream directly to multiple streaming applications including YouTube, Meta (Facebook), Zoom, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Skype. The USB 3.0 port allows for simple plug-and-play connectivity for any conferencing service.
To control the BG-VPTZ-HSU3 series, users can use RS-232, RS-485, LAN, or IR remote control. Also available is BG-PTZ-Control, BZBGEAR's free proprietary PTZ control software for Windows, Mac, and iOS. Control is also available with the IP VISCA, ONVIF, and PELCO-P/D protocols. 255 available preset positions can be stored internally, with nine of those presets available via IR remote control. To manage the settings, users can access the smart menu or opt for the web GUI.
When installing the BG-VPTZ-HSU3 series, users can mount them on the ceiling, wall, tripod, or simply place them on a desk. These PTZ cameras support Power over Ethernet (PoE), providing power and a network connection using a single category cable.
