PTZ (Pan, Tilt & Zoom)
Speed dome cameras are often referred to as pan, tilt and zoom cameras (PTZ). These cameras can be used in multiple environments. For example, we have supplied them to the NHS for radiotherapy rooms to enable them to view patients whilst getting treatments. We have also supplied them to farmers to view their cows to keep an eye on them when they are about to give birth.
We specialize in AHD and IP speed domes ranging from 2MP to 4MP. Our speed domes are fully integrated with our recording unit and app. The cameras can be either operated via the recording unit or by the app / cms software.
A Presets is a user-defined location where the camera can be pointed, zoomed-in, and focused, and then saving that position, presets can then be labelled in the recording unit and saved. By using these presets, you can configure functions using the presets. You are able to create tours in the recording unit. Please CLICK HERE to view a video on PTZ presets
A PTZ cruise is where you combine two or more presets to move in a sequence between point to point in allotted time. Multiple PTZ cruises can be saved in the recording unit and be operated either by the recording unit or by the App. Please CLICK HERE to view a video on PTZ cruise
A PTZ trace is set through the OSD menu in the camera. What it actually does is trace your movements in the camera for a maximum of 180 seconds then loop the movements over and over again. Similar to the PTZ cruise but instead of the PTZ moving from preset to preset, it tracks the movements pre-programmed in the menu. Please CLICK HERE to view a video on PTZ Traces.
A PTZ task setting is set through the OSD menu in the camera. It is a group of calls that include traces, cruises and presets all combined together scheduled throughout the day at different intervals. For example, 00:00 – 06:00 Preset 1 (Looking at car park entrance) 06:01- 18:00 Cruise 1 (Going from preset 2 to preset 3 Scanning over car park) 18:01- 23:59 Preset 1 (Looking at car park entrance). While the task is live you can manually pan, tilt, zoom the camera to a certain location and once finished, it will automictically resume the task so no need to re start the task.

A PTZ home position is set through the OSD menu in the camera, this will allow the PTZ to return back to a pre-selected area (Preset) once you have finished operating the camera after a certain amount of time. Please CLICK HERE to view a video on PTZ Home Position.
