Zooming with PTZ Cameras

PTZ cameras have optical zoom or digital zoom. Optical is far preferred (click here for a knowledge base article comparing the two). The first image is 2.8 mm (1x zoom), the second at 4x zoom, the third is at 20x, and the last is at 30x zoom. The dumpster is about 150 feet from the camera.

IP cameras are network devices (they have their own network addresses that you can visit) that create digital HD video directly on the camera then stream that video back to a Network Video Recorder (NVR), web browser, or smart phone.

About IP PTZ Cameras

IP PTZ Cameras are cameras that posses the ability to Pan Tilt and Zoom in on targets and areas by use of a surveillance team and a joystick / mouse and keyboard combo. IP PTZ Cameras are used by the military, private security companies, large retailers, airports, shipping yards, ports, and industrial compounds. One of the main benefits of PTZ cameras is the ability to zoom in and investigate further without alerting the person who is being recorded.

Network PTZ Camera Uses

PTZ Cameras are also used frequently in scenarios where human being's health can be at risk but highly adaptable surveillance is necessary, such as nuclear facilities and science labs.

Sometimes IP PTZ Cameras are referred to as “High Speed Domes.” Although they are supposed to describe PTZ Cameras with a dome shell, the definitions are not as solid as they seem as there can be many combination of features sets within the PTZ/Dome Hybids. Because of this, some people refer to all PTZ Cameras as High Speed Dome Cameras.

IP PTZ Camera Recommendations

It is our recommendation that when looking at PTZ network cameras, that you worry less with the digital zoom and more about the optical zoom. Optical zoom actually increases the number of pixels being recorded while digital zoom only make those pictures appear larger. Optical zoom is vastly better than digital. Here's a comparison of the two with pictures.

Some PTZ Camera software providers has the ability to automatically track targets. If this is a concern, I would look at the NVR software pages and give us a call to build a custom solution.
