PTZ cameras can be set in various places and can be used in different installations because of their ability to turn, usually in almost or in a complete circle or tilt at different angles. In fact PTZ stands for Pan, Tilt and Zoom. The Zoom function helps zooming on particular object.
PTZ cameras can be controlled via DVR recorder or DVR capture card installed in computer. That type of CCTV cameras can be programmed by the operator to move in a set pattern or to be moved manually depending on the situation.
Because of the fact that PTZ camera has to be completely mobile the design is in sphere shape. In that case the camera can pan, tilt or/and zoom and make the recording through the protective shield.
Because PTZ cameras can be controlled from a distance, the user does not need to be near the camera. After the PTZ camera is installed, it is generally low-maintenance and requires little attention, except in the case of malfunctions or required cleaning.
