The BG-MAESTRO is a compact ePTZ auto-tracking camera that delivers extremely accurate tracking throughout its coverage area. Designed to be easily configurable, the Maestro requires no additional software to set the auto-tracking parameters which is completed through the web based interface. With electronic pan, tilt, and zoom (ePTZ) capabilities, tracking is accomplished with a fixed lens and maintains a very compact form factor. Power over ethernet (PoE) technology further simplifies installation, requiring only one cable for power and internet connectivity.
This camera supports SRT, enabling high-quality, low-latency video to be sent reliably over the internet.
Connectivity & Performance
The BG-MAESTRO can simultaneously output USB 3.0, 3G-SDI / HDMI, and IP streaming in resolutions up to 1080p@30Hz. The Maestro also utilizes a 1/2.8” high quality 4K CMOS sensor to provide low noise and a high SNR for the clearest image possible. The camera is capable of up to a 3x digital zoom and ePTZ controls automatically track subjects in its field of view. It can accomplish this task between distances of 15ft to 50ft from the camera.
With 5 simultaneous output streams the BG-Maestro allows multiple angles to be broadcast at once. This camera is ideally suited for educational purposes, lectures, fitness instructors, and hobbyists. The Maestro has smooth tracking that is not affected by minor movements of subjects and it is also resistant to acquisition of interfering subjects.
This camera is further equipped with a 3.5mm stereo input for the connection of an external microphone. It also supports several protocols such as ONVIF, RTSP, and RTMP which enable operators to stream video directly from the camera to streaming and video service platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch. H.264 and H.265 video compression options are also available helping to reduce bandwidth.
The intuitive web interface enables users to optimize the camera’s auto tracking abilities as well as video parameters for particular situations and environments. The BG-MAESTRO further supports control through RS232 and RS485. The camera can also be mounted to a ceiling, wall, or tripod for additional flexibility in installation.
