Datavideo Announces A Brand New 4K Auto Tracking PTZ Camera

Jan 17 2023

Datavideo is thrilled to introduce the 4K50/60p auto-tracking PTZ camera, PTC-285. The brand-new 4K auto-tracking PTZ camera provides high-quality images and a built-in auto-tracking feature. The camera is perfect for corporate presentations, TV studios, houses of worship, and hybrid classrooms.

The Datavideo PTC-285 4K PTZ camera inherits the same high-quality optical feature from the PTC-280 series. The PTC-285 has a 1 / 2.8-inch CMOS sensor with 3840 x 2160px Ultra HD resolution and a frame rate of 60fps; with 12x optical zoom and 16x digital zoom, a wide F1.8 aperture, and advanced 2D/3D noise reduction.

What makes the PTC-285 different from the other 4K PTZ cameras is that a user can easily assign the camera lock the focus on a designated person for auto tracking, and never worry about any interferences such as the desks, people coming back and forth, or large objects. The integrated PID algorithm can detect the movement speed of the identified object and automatically adjust the camera's corresponding pan, tilt and zoom speeds so that the lens movement will be smooth, avoiding common camera lens movement problems like jerky movements or unpredicted halts.

The PTC-285 comes with an RMC-1 PTZ controller, allowing the user to set and control all four cameras and save the four presets. The PTC-285 is also compatible with various controllers, including Datavideo PTZ View Assist APP, RMC-300A, and RMC-180 MARK II. Pair the PTC-285 with an iCast-10NDI switcher for a complete single operator solution for online presentations or hybrid classrooms.

Moreover, the PTC-285 4K Auto Tracking PTZ camera supports H.264/H.265 video compression formats and has a built-in dual streaming encoder. Easily stream directly to two different CDN platforms simultaneously and Datavideo dvCloud, and one of the encoded streaming signals can be configured for a live 4K signal. 

Datavideo also provides extended models to the PTC-285 series such as PTC-285T 4K HDBaseT and NDI to meet the needs of different workflows. For more information, please visit
