PTZOptics 20x-USB Gen2 PTZ Camera HDMI and Streaming (White)


The PTZOptics 20x-USB Gen2, white, with USB 3.0 output allows you to connect to a computer for HD web conferencing. The Gen2 records 1080p60/50 and streams in H.265 and MJPEG in addition to H.264.

This camera has a 4.4 to 88.5mm lens with 20x zoom. It performs well in low light thanks to an aperture of f/1.8 to f/2.8 and minimum illumination of only 0.5lux at f/1.8. Wide dynamic range and 2D/3D noise cancellation further enhance the conference experience.

In addition to the USB output, the camera has LAN, HDMI and Composite outputs, RS-232 input and output and RS-485. The USB, LAN and HDMI outputs can be used simultaneously at the same resolution. The Composite output can only be used at 480i/576i. The USB output is USB 2.0 compatible, setting the resolution to 960x540.
