Along with NDI® there is support for Visca over IP, RS422, and RS232. You can mix and match cameras from any of the supported protocols and control them all from a single PTZ Keyboard.

Superior Ergonomics. Built for Humans.

Using the PTZ Keyboard is a breeze with well thought out button layout. Quickly access all the cameras on the network, and set up quick access buttons for all your favourite settings such as Exposure, Focus, Zoom, and movement speeds.

Effortless, one handed control of Pan, Tilt, and Zoom is possible with the 3-Way Joystick. For those who prefer a zoom rocker there is also one of those exactly where your left hand wants it.

Soft touch buttons. Treat your fingers.

Your fingers will thank you for using the PTZ Keyboard. Soft-touch silicon buttons and easy turn dials give a premium sensation while achieving the responsiveness you expect and deserve.

6 program buttons. Work how you want to work.

Set up your quick access buttons to work the way you want. Exposure, Focus, PT Speed, Zoom, Shutter Speed, Iris, White Balance, Compensation, and more, can all be programmed into the assignable buttons.

By the power of PoE. You have the power.

Super flexible powering options allow you to power the PTZ Keyboard from Power over Ethernet (PoE), DC in, or even over the serial port. Never get stuck in a situation where you can’t power up.
