PT-JOY-G4 | IP Joystick Controller
All-new versatile joystick for IP or serial control

A Controller for All Production Setups

Introducing the PTZOptics 4th Generation IP Joystick Controller. Compatible with most PTZ cameras operating serial or IP protocol, including Sony, the PT-JOY-G4 is a legacy-friendly controller designed to easily integrate into a wide array of existing production systems, and even allows users to switch between protocols with the touch of a button.

Key Features:

  • VISCA over IP or Serial Control
  • Full Pan, Tilt, Zoom Camera Control
  • Fine Tune Focus Control
  • Focus Lock and Unlock
  • Larger LCD Screen with Controller Status
  • Direct Exposure
  • White Balance
  • Red & Blue Gain Control

Enhanced Setup Management

A newly added web user interface will decrease your set up time, allowing you to get multiple cameras up and running in as little as five minutes! If you’re using the PT-JOY-G4 for different productions or sets, we’ve got you covered. Import and export settings for specific use cases or production environments.

For network setup, the PT-JOY-G4 will dynamically obtain an IP address upon connection to your LAN. If your network is not able to supply DHCP addresses, you can assign a static IP address to the controller.
Streamlined Production at Your Fingertips
With an expanded LCD screen and a wide range of knobs for fine tuning, a single camera operator can easily:

Operate cameras in basic, matrix and normal modes
Access cameras and quickly recall preset locations
Control white balance, red and blue gain, shutter speed and more!
Use web-based and smartphone app control for added flexibility

A Smart Acquisition for Any Production

Backed by PTZOptics’ 2-year warranty, plus full support from PTZOptics’ technical team, the PT-JOY-G4 is an ideal choice for video production in schools, houses of worship and other broadcast and live streaming scenarios.
