Great for low-light environments

Datavideo PTC-280 4K50/60p PTZ camera can be easily controlled via traditional RS-422 serial port or IP remote control via DVIP (Datavideo proprietary protocol) or Sony VISCA over IP. This brand new 4K camera supports dual streaming output so you can easily stream to Facebook (RTMPS) and YouTube simultaneously. It also works well with Datavideo's dvCloud to utilize SRT (instead of RTMP) and provide reliable streams over unreliable networks (learn more at dvCloud). Control real-time pan, tilt, and zoom camera movements with Datavideo PTZ View Assist APP, RMC-300A and RMC-180 or with RS-422 and ethernet to use DVIP or VISCA over IP commands to integrate with larger control systems. The optics on this camera perform well in low-light environments and advanced 2D/3D noise reduction technology further reducing the noise while ensuring image sharpness. The PTC-280 provides a wide Field of View of 71° easily shooting all the scenes in the field and offering versatility for camera placement.
