Yes, all our cameras (excluding passive webcams) comes with IR Remote Control. You can use one remote control unit to control multiple alike cameras. You can control pan, tilt, zoom, navigate menu and use multiple camera preset positions which is very convenient in any application when you need quickly point camera into the predetermined spot and zoom accordingly (like selecting active person at the conference table during the meeting, or switching from general view of the stage to the speaker podium in house of worship)

BG-UPTZ cameras have the tools to adjust any video parameters – focus, exposure, color, image or level of noise reduction.

Total maximum zoom is a max optical zoom multiplied to max digital zoom. So for 12x optical zoom lenses and 10x digital zoom (all BG-UPTZ have 10x digital zoom) the total zoom will be 120X and for the 30x optical zoom lenses total zoom will be 300X. Reminder – digital zoom is a cropping image down to the center area with saving original aspect ratio and interpolating this image back to the original resolution – this programmable method not involving adjustments to the camera hardware. Expect degrading of image quality after reaching maximum optical zoom and using digital.
