PTZ-X2 Camera Controller
Two-Camera PTZ Controller for Newtek TriCaster®
Two-Camera PTZ Controller for Newtek™ TriCaster®
PTZ-X2 is the easy to use, affordable solution for controlling up to two PTZ remote cameras with your TriCaster. Because it works within the TriCaster user environment, it's compatible with any PTZ camera that can interface with TriCaster, including serial, network, and even NDI® models.
The Power of X
X means 10. As in 10 motion buttons for Pan-Tilt-Zoom. As in 10 custom preset positions per camera.
Pan and Tilt in 8 directions
8 momentary push-button keys provide precise, smooth positioning in the intended direction, unlike a joystick which can tend to overshoot your destination - or zig when you mean to zag! Light taps provide small incremental moves for re-framing existing presets, or hold for smooth motion and consistent speed within the full range of camera movement.
Lightning mode for camera setup
Depress either of the two lightning buttons, then tap any motion or zoom key to move rapidly in that direction. Ideal for quick setup of new preset positions. Jump quickly to the intended target area with lightning speed, then use standard slow controls to fine-tune the final preset framing with precision.
Sometimes you need to tighten up a shot, or add just a little head room around your subject.
Zoom in or out smoothly in fine increments without awkward movements that draw attention.
Create and save up to 10 PTZ position presets per camera (20 total), then access each with one-button ease. Saving any preset with PTZ-X2 automatically adds a thumbnail image to the PTZ tab in TriCaster. Even access presets that were created within the TriCaster PTZ interface. Fully integrated to work with the TriCaster-native PTZ controls, not against them.
Compact, Ergonomic, and Visible
Small in size, big on features. Its small footprint is ideal for crowded desktops, and the non-slip angled feet provide a stable platform ready for work. The 24 LED back-lit keys are easily identified in most any lighting environment.
Control Two PTZ Cameras
The CAM button toggles the PTZ controls to a second camera or back again, with an LED color change indicating which camera you are controlling (blue or red lighting indicates selected camera).
Works with any current* TriCaster including TC1, with or without Advanced Edition option. Simple USB connection, with no additional power required. *Not compatible with TC40, which does not offer native PTZ control
