The multi-streaming with in-depth user adjustments combine with the latest codec streaming for both video and audio. Compression methods like H.264 and H.265 promise super low bandwidth requirements while audio compressions like G.711A, G.711Mu, G.726 and AAC provide superb efficiency as well as quality for your external microphone and/or speaker additions. Built-in Intelligence by no means stops there, these Mini PTZs come with cutting edge detection methods also known as Video Analytics such as Tripwire, Intrusion and Face Detection. The diverse range of included IT protocols also promise practically any requirement of IT professionals to live broadcast demands are all ready to be met.

Highly Adaptable, Rugged, Compact:
In its recessed form the unit only protrudes from your surface a mere 3.14 inches making it among the smallest PTZ cameras available that still pack powerful zoom. Alternative models in pendant style and the standard surface mount style model offered along with an array of optional accessories means this PTZ series is ready for basically all types of install demands. The unit is rugged with a high impact IK10 rated casing meaning even if it is within reach of a would-be vandal, its tough construction can withstand heavy blows even of hammer or other solid objects. Flexible Power input like Power over Ethernet (PoE+ 802.3at) or 24VAC to external Alarm I/O promise comprehensive install capabilities.
