About The Datavideo PTC-305 4K PTZ – White
PTC-305 4K PTZ Camera with Auto Tracking

Datavideo is introducing the 4K50/60p Auto tracking PTZ camera, PTC-305 can be easily controlled via traditional RS-422 serial port, or IP remote control via DVIP (Datavideo proprietary protocol) or Sony VISCA over IP. This brand new 4K camera series supports dual streaming output for A/V market application. You can easily stream to Facebook (RTMPS), YouTube and dvCloud.

Simultaneous Outputs

Connect your PTC-305 to multiple devices in your workflow for flexibility. All the outputs are active at the same time.

Quick Access to Camera’s Auto Tracking

You will be allowed direct access to auto tracking via various external controllers such as the supplied RMC-1AT remote control and DVIP controllers (RMC-300A, RMC-180 MARK II and PTC View Assist).

In addition to camera controllers, you can also easily enable auto tracking on smart switchers which include KMU-200, SHOWCAST 100, etc as well as complete solution systems like ZR-1 Hybrid Video Production Solution.

Custom Auto Object Tracking

If you are filming multiple people, you can designate a person for auto tracking. Once linked to the camera, only the designated person will be tracked, avoiding interferences such as the desks, people coming back and forth, large objects, etc.

Smart PTZ Speed Adaptation

The integrated PID algorithm is able to detect the movement speed of the identified object and automatically adjust the camera’s corresponding pan, tilt and zoom speeds in such a way that the lens movement will be smooth, avoiding common camera lens movement problems like jerky movements or unpredicted halts.

Quick Access to Framing Options

All of the PTC-305 camera series include RMC-1AT controller. User can quickly select full-body, half-body and close up framing, making it easy to change the shooting scene and framing requirements.
