Datavideo introduces a new solution to turn your micro four thirds cameras into pan tilt zoom cameras with zoom presets. ZEK-2 KIT zoom controller kit contains a powerful Tilta Nucleus zoom motor, gear ring, mounting hardware with control and power cables enabling you to control virtually any lens with your mirrorless, micro fourth thirds or even full frame cameras. The ZEK-2 combined with the Datavideo PTR-10 or PTR-10T (HDBaseT version) MARK II robotic pan tilt head, eliminates the need to have multiple camera operators for smaller productions while keeping the great image quality that these cameras provide.
Use the RMC-180 MARK II serial camera controller with the PTR-10 MARK II or the Datavideo HS-1600T all-in-one streaming switcher with joystick, preset buttons and knobs to control PTR-10T MARK II HDBaseT version. Each controller can store and save up to four PTZ memory preset positions on the PTR-10 robotic head.
LANC control cable is included to allow for IRIS and Focus control of compatible camcorders and lens. The PTR-10 supports simultaneous SDI and HDMI inputs/outputs to connect to a switcher or a streaming encoder.
“PTR-10 is a cost saving solution for any production. Now, you don’t need to hire multiple camera operators for your multi-camera live production. Use your favorite micro four thirds cameras and save presets like you would on PTZ cameras with superior video image quality up to 4K UHD resolutions,” says Craig Moffat, Managing Director of Datavideo USA.
PTR-10 series can pan 340° and tilt 90°. It also has built-in tally light, so on-screen talent knows which camera is live and which one is preview. PTR-10 is strong and sturdy and supports camera and lens payload weight of up to 8 lbs. It can be tripod mounted or permanently installed using an WM-11 wall mount from Datavideo.
