What is Dante AV-H?
Dante AV-H brings device interoperability and the power of Dante to H.26x endpoints. With Dante AV-H, all video and audio routing, configuration, and management of devices is done with one easy to use platform. The Link 4K will automatically sync up with your Dante system clock leader ensuring seamless audio and video synchronization, and is able to output Dante AV-H video on your network natively, along with audio sources connected to the 3.5mm audio input.
Designed with the Future in Mind
Every Link 4K camera features SDI, HDMI, USB, and IP output for unparalleled performance and versatility. The Link 4K features 4K at 60fps over HDMI, USB, and IP. Using technology by Dante, the Link 4K is able to provide 1080p 60fps resolution over Dante AV-H, as well as SDI.
The Link 4K offers built-in auto-tracking capabilities — no need to run software on another computer — freeing teams of the need for a camera operator. With 12x, 20x, and 30x optical zoom available, the Link 4K can fit seamlessly into any production scenario.
Pan, Tilt, Zoom, Track.
Control your production from behind the scenes – or right in front of them. The Link 4K’s auto-tracking can lock onto a specific person, even while other people are in frame. Users can switch between on-stage presenters with the click of a button. The Link 4K can track subjects up to 300 feet away.
In addition to the Link 4K’s auto-tracking features, users will also have access to our latest Web UI — updated to provide everything you need in one simple menu. Almost every feature in the Web UI has a tutorial function, perfect for novice producers navigating the settings for the first time.
Discreet Mounting Options
Mount your PTZOptics Link 4K camera above, below or beside the action to capture the ideal view every time. The Link 4K’s automatic video inversion feature senses the camera’s orientation and saves time on installation and setup.
Take Control Your Way
Users can control Link 4K cameras using video production software such as OBS, Livestream Studio, Wirecast, vMix, mimoLive or Tricaster — or check out one of our hardware joystick controllers such as our IP joystick, serial joystick, or the SuperJoy. The options for camera control are endless, allowing you to take charge of your camera in a way that fits your workflow.
