An interview from the 2023 NAB Show in Las Vegas with Paul Richards of PTZOptics. PTZOptics is a manufacturer of robotic pan, tilt, zoom camera solutions for a variety of broadcast applications, including both video production and live streaming. Established in 2014, PTZOptics disrupted the professional audio visual industry when a group of engineers from a highly-respected systems integration firm created the first in a portfolio of cameras that was a part of their vision to create a “swiss army knife” for the complex needs of broadcast landscapes.

The Move 4K is the latest PTZ camera from PTZOptics, featuring auto-tracking for a more intelligent video production workflow. The Move 4K is capable of 4K at 60fps (1080p at 60fps over SDI), future-proofing your technology investment while still accommodating HD and Full HD video resolutions equipment. The Move 4K offers high performance in low-light scenarios, PoE+ capabilities, and a built-in tally light.

Every Move 4K camera features SDI, HDMI, USB, and IP output, and comes native with NDI®|HX for unparalleled performance and versatility. The Move 4K offers built-in auto-tracking capabilities — no need to run software on another computer — freeing teams of the need for a camera operator. With 12x, 20x, and 30x optical zoom available, the Move 4K can fit seamlessly into any production scenario.

Control your production from behind the scenes – or right in front of them. In addition to the Move 4K’s auto-tracking features, users will also have access to our latest Web UI — updated to provide everything you need in one simple menu. Almost every feature in the Web UI has a tutorial function, perfect for novice producers navigating the settings for the first time.

Users can also take control of their PTZ cameras using video production software such as OBS, Livestream Studio, Wirecast, vMix, mimoLive or Tricaster — or check out one of our hardware joystick controllers such as our IP joystick, serial joystick, or the SuperJoy. The options for camera control are endless, allowing you to take charge of your camera in a way that fits your workflow.
