  • Streaming Encoders

    The easiest, most reliable way to stream from a camera or video mixer is a streaming encoder. Most support YouTube and Facebook and can be programmed for other providers.

  • Camera Control

    A PTZ camera can be controlled with a remote control (may need a remote extender - wired or wireless)

    Presets can be programmed for different views, although if the camera speed cannot be set, the transition could be dizzying for the viewer. (Except for the Sony SRG360SHE)

    If the PTZ is an IP camera, a computer can be used to control it.

    The best control is a joystick and can be used for multiple cameras.

    Single Cameras can be controlled using a VISCA or LANC controller

    Some camcorders have wireless built-in and can be controller over an app (only zoom in and out.)
