Build your PTZ Camera System with the PT12X-SDI Gen 2. This camera from PTZ Optics is a professional broadcast camera with 12X zoom. PTZ Optics' SDI line includes some of the most popular camera models. With game-changing optics and high-quality video outputs, video professionals can create innovative custom systems to uniquely suit their needs.

SDI refers to Serial Digital Interface, a standard for the delivery of digital video via a coaxial cable. The SDI standard has been widely adopted by the broadcast industry to transmit uncompressed, unencrypted digital video signals. Multiple video outputs and control methods accommodate the growing demands of modern video production. Remote camera control options when and where you want them.

Use PTZ controls built-in to your favorite video production software such as OBS, Livestream, Studio, Wirecast vMix, mimoLive, or Tricaster. Or check out one of our hardware joystick controllers such as our IP joystick, serial joystick, or the SuperJoy. Try our free IP control application for Mac or PC, our open-source control software on GitHub, and our OBS plugin here. SDI cameras can also live stream directly to content delivery networks such as Facebook and YouTube.
