One Camera, Multiple Purposes: Content Creation, Live Streaming, and Video Conferencing
June 28, 2023 - The PTZOptics Studio Pro is the latest PTZOptics camera designed with the needs of content creators, broadcasters, and video conferencing users in mind. This camera is a practical all-in-one solution that promises to deliver quality and versatility for a variety of video production needs.
The Studio Pro is equipped high-quality real-glass 12X lens that provides 12X optical zoom and a 72.5° Field of View. The Studio Pro 12X lens provides a happy medium between wide angle views when subjects are close to the camera and optical zoom when subjects are farther away. For example, the Studio Pro can capture a head and shoulders view of a subject up to 25 feet away (7.6 meters).
The Studio Pro also offers both portrait and landscape modes, giving users the flexibility to connect with their audiences in a format that suits their content. The time-of-flight sensor enables quick focus, and the advanced focus settings provide the option for a bokeh effect, adding a creative touch to your video content.
A key feature of the Studio Pro is its range of output options. It supports HDMI, USB, and IP outputs simultaneously, which means it can adapt to different setups and requirements. The camera is also native with NDI®|HX3, which simplifies network access to the camera with the latest low-latency IP video production solution that will work immediately with OBS, Wirecast, vMix and many more live streaming software solutions.
More than just a camera, it has a light!
The PTZOptics Studio Pro goes beyond providing just a camera; it includes a USB-powered lighting solution as part of the package. Good lighting is an essential component of any high-quality video production. It not only illuminates the subject but also helps control the perception of the video’s mood, tone, and atmosphere. With the Studio Pro’s adjustable lighting solution, which offers temperature settings from a soft white 3000k to a crisp daylight 6000k, creators can easily manipulate their scene’s lighting conditions to match their creative vision or meeting requirements. This helps eliminate shadows, reduce glare, and highlight the subject, resulting in a more professional and visually pleasing video.
The Studio Pro package includes an IR remote, a USB-powered lighting solution with adjustable temperature settings, and a noise-canceling microphone array. For power supply, it can use Power over Ethernet (PoE), USB, or a standard 12VDC power supply, giving users flexibility in deployment.
In terms of software, the Studio Pro is compatible with almost any video software because it offers USB plug-and-play connectivity and NDI for IP connections. If you are using an HDMI-based video switcher like an ATEM Mini the Studio Pro has you covered. If you are managing multiple PTZOptics cameras you can use the Camera Management Platform (CMP) for camera control along with the desktop and mobile control apps, and plugins for platforms like OBS and Twitch.
PTZOptics offers a 5-year warranty for the Studio Pro, demonstrating our commitment to the quality of their products and the satisfaction of our customers.
In summary, the PTZOptics Studio Pro is a practical choice for those who need a reliable, flexible, and quality camera for content creation, live streaming, and video conferencing. Its range of features, software compatibility, and robust warranty make it a solid investment for your video production needs. By the way, at the 2023 CES show, the Studio Pro won best webcam from VideoMaker.
