Smart PTZ Speed Adaptation

Smart PTZ Speed Adaptation The integrated PID algorithm can detect the movement speed of the identified object and automatically adjust the camera's corresponding pan, tilt, and zoom speeds in such a way that the lens movement will be smooth, avoiding common camera lens movement problems like jerky movements or unpredicted halts.

Talent Position: Center / Left Side / Right Side

Talent Position The positioning of talent depends on the videographer's creativity and intent rather than strict rules. Different positions can convey various emotions, messages, or visual effects. A centered composition provides a sense of stability and balance, suitable for scenes that require highlighting the main subject. Videographers may also place the talent on the left third or right third of the frame, leaving adequate space in the foreground to showcase the talent's sight direction or potential future possibilities.

Quick Selection of Full Body / Half Body / Close-up

All of the PTC-285 camera series includes an RMC-1AT controller. Users can quickly select full-body, half-body, and close-up framing, making it easy to change the shooting scene and framing requirements. Quick Selection of Full Body


S-Shaped Speed Curve

The S-Shaped Speed Curve, inspired by the smooth acceleration and deceleration of a lift, is a pivotal feature that enhances the camera lens movement. Much like the elevator ride that starts and stops seamlessly, the PTC-285 camera ensures your video captures maintain uninterrupted fluidity.

This innovative technology eliminates any jerky movements that might be discernible to the naked eye, resulting in professional-quality, visually pleasing content. The S-Shaped Speed Curve is your assurance that the camera's pan, tilt, and zoom functions will operate with precision and grace, delivering an unparalleled visual experience for your audience. Experience the future of camera movement with the PTC-285.
