Philadelphia, PA - PTZOptics is a pan tilt zoom camera manufacturer focusing on live streaming and video conferencing products. This week PTZOptics announces far end camera control integration with Zoom Video Conferencing. This integration allows Zoom Video Conferencing users to pan tilt and zoom PTZOptics cameras directly through the Zoom interface. The technology used is called UVC camera control and it represents one of the many control protocols PTZOptics supports including: VISCA, PELCO, TCP/UDP, ONVIF and UVC.

UVC camera control allows the Zoom Video Conferencing client to control the PTZ operations of a PTZOptics camera with no additional cabling other than the USB connection used for video. This is the ideal control protocol for unified communications for ease of use and ease of installation. "PTZOptics cameras support both relative and absolute UVC camera control," Paul Richards Dir of Business Development at PTZOptics says "Relative UVC camera control is perfect for basic PTZ control during a video conference call. Absolute UVC camera control allows for advanced functionality such as calling an exact camera preset." For users looking for advanced UVC camera control we also offer a UVC software which can control multiple cameras and store camera presets.

PTZOptics has joined forces with Zoom video conferencing to provide an ideal USB PTZ camera for medium to large sized rooms. PTZOptics has also announced that they will provide a free month of zoom video conferencing with every camera sold until March 2016. "Providing Zoom video conferencing free with every camera helps our customers get started with video conferencing right away. Even if our customer is focused on live streaming and broadcast applications we think a free professional zoom license can open up new opportunities for internal and external video communications for any organization."

PTZOptics hosts a live broadcast every Friday using Zoom Video Conferencing and YouTube Live. On December 11th, PTZOptics Live will be focusing on the use of multiple cameras with web based conferencing software such as GoToMeeting, WebEX and Zoom. And on December 18th, PTZOptics Live will be reviewing the far end camera control integration with Zoom.
