Five Reasons to Step up to a Remote Camera With the CR-N100

In an era where video production is rapidly changing, we have drawn from our expertise in pro video and cinema cameras, with network camera technology to develop a range of professional 4K remote cameras. With exceptional image quality and precise control, they are designed to fit in with a variety of productions and applications.

What is a remote PTZ camera?

A PTZ camera, or Pan-Tilt-Zoom camera, is a type of video camera that offers the capability to remotely control its movement along the horizontal (pan) and vertical (tilt) axes, as well as adjust its zoom level. While the camera is physically static, it can be controlled in real-time to get different points of view.

Pan: Camera can scan or follow subjects across a large field of view
Tilt: Camera can look up or down, covering different heights and angles
Zoom: Camera can adjust focal length to get closer views of specific details or maintain a wide perspective of an area

We’ve brought our high-quality optics and imaging technology to create an offering of professional remote PTZ cameras with excellent image clarity, colour accuracy and low-light performance.
