What Is A PTZ Camera
Jun 08, 2018

PTZ is the pan/tilt/zoom three-letter abbreviation, which stands for omnidirectional (up and down, left and right, variable, and focusable) controllable. The PTZ cameras we often mention at this stage are mainly PTZ cameras and dome cameras. PTZ cameras have the characteristics of being equipped with pan-tilt heads and complex installation structures, which are limited in their application and are less widely used in actual monitoring projects. The dome camera occupies a large share of the video surveillance front-end product due to its high reliability and flexible application. The PTZ cameras used in specific projects can achieve manual/automatic control of the monitoring range, increase the monitoring range of a single front-end point, and help improve the efficiency of video surveillance.

PTZ cameras have application advantages

The PTZ camera can quickly and accurately locate the monitoring target according to changes in the monitoring environment, main body, and other requirements. That is, on the basis of the fixed camera, the PTZ camera can be adjusted in three directions of electric horizontal/vertical/variable zooming, and the camera can be quickly adjusted in the background to adapt to the changed scene monitoring. Under the background of gradual increase in installation costs and other construction costs, electric control cameras for scene adaptation monitoring will undoubtedly have obvious advantages in maintenance costs. In addition, after the cameras are installed, three-way electric control means that the camera can easily monitor the scene changes at any time, thus expanding the monitoring range of a single point, and improving the monitoring efficiency of a single point. These application advantages of PTZ cameras strongly support the rapid growth of such cameras in the future.
