PTZOptics Announces Move Line and Studio Pro, HuddleCamHD Announces MiniTrack 4K Pro

PTZOptics Move Line

PTZOptics, and sister company HuddleCamHD, announced a slate of new camera releases.

The PTZOptics Move line is a new line of PTZ cameras designed for universal compatibility, so every Move camera has outputs for SDI, HDMI, USB and IP. PTZOptics will offer the Move line with either 12X, 20X or 30X optical zoom, all with built-in auto-tracking capabilities.

The Move line includes both the Move 4K and Move Pro models. Both models are capable of 4K at 60fps (1080p at 60fps over SDI) and feature a built-in tally light. Additional Pro features include:

  • Upgraded optical lens and whisper-quiet motor
  • Beam-forming microphones for audio-driven auto-tracking
  • Onboard LED display showing the camera’s video resolution and IP address

The PTZOptics Studio Pro camera is built for creatives. With a 12X optical zoom, a 72.5° field-of-view, and a built-in noise-canceling microphone array, this is an all-in-one content creation and livestreaming solution. The Studio Pro’s advanced focus settings allow users to achieve a bokeh effect for creative and stylized visuals. An advanced time-of-flight sensor enables rapid focus on new or moving subjects. Users can swap between landscape and portrait mode via a toggle switch. The Studio Pro comes equipped with an IR Remote, a USB-powered lighting solution with a color temperature range of 3000 – 6000k, and a cold shoe adapter for mounting the light, a shotgun mic or other accessories to the camera.

The Studio Pro’s form-factor allows it to be mounted to a laptop or tripod or used as a handheld with equal ease. The camera features simultaneous HDMI, USB, and IP output capabilities and comes with native NDI|HX, allowing it to integrate into any setup with far more ease than a typical DSLR. For flexible deployment, the Studio Pro can be powered via USB, 12VDC or PoE.

The latest addition to the HuddleCam HD auto-tracking line, the MiniTrack 4K Pro, brings auto-tracking and auto-framing capabilities to a webcam form factor and price point. This plug-and-play USB 3.0 camera is ideal for videoconferencing, livestreaming, lecture capture and more in small and medium spaces.

The MiniTrack 4K Pro features 8X digital zoom, 108° FoV, and electronic pan, tilt, zoom controls, all in 4K at 30 fps. Using the included IR remote, users can track or frame subjects, set presets using two available preset keys, or zoom in and out electronically. The camera features a wide variety of color and lighting settings: Users can rely on AI-assisted settings to adjust the shot, or fine-tune the camera manually to accommodate any lighting environment.

The MiniTrack 4K Pro is built to travel. Because the MiniTrack is an ePTZ camera with no motorized parts, it is safe and easy to pack for live events or long commutes. The camera is universally compatible with Windows, macOS, Linux and nearly any streaming, video production or videoconferencing platform. Wherever you roam, the MiniTrack is ready to use within seconds.
