Controlling Cameras

Every turret camera recognised by the system (see the system Launch LAUNCH of STUDIO system), can be controlled via the Joystick shortcut via the buttonor any other Joystick assigned via the Controller configurations.

The controlled camera appears in orange.

If the camera is on line, the frame of the preview will be red but the rest of the zone will be orange.

Controlling with a Joystick

The PTZ (Pan, Tilt, Zoom) movements assigned to the Joystick are generally:

  • PAN: Moving the stick from left to right
  • TILT: Moving the stick from high to low, similar to an aviation handle
  • ZOOM: Rotation of the upper part of the stick

The more substantial the range of movement, the more substantial the speed of the camera movement.

To get softer and smother live shots, bring the Joystick back to the starting position.
