The PTZOptics ZCAM-12X is a 1080p box camera with 12X optical zoom for capturing HD video even at a distance. With support for 3G-SDI & IP streaming, this camera is ideal for broadcasting high definition video signals for broadcast or video conferencing applications up to 1080p/60 resolution.
What is a ZCam? ZCams are “box” cameras meant for static, point-of-view shots and specialized applications, such as surveillance and monitoring. Designed to capture specific areas, these sturdy cameras, combined with our traditional PTZ cameras, provide more angle options for video production.
Designed for many uses, the PTZOptics ZCam is compact and easy to set up and integrate into a variety of production workflows.
Mount and stream your ZCam in just 10 minutes! Capture unique viewing angles and deploy cameras up to 300 feet away with standard Ethernet cabling.
Each compact ZCam includes an option for NDI® integration for seamless integration into video production software on a network, such as vMix, Wirecast, xSplit, MimoLive, OBS, Livestream Studio, and more. When connected to high-quality 3GSDI video switchers, PTZOptics ZCams can be used with a wide variety of hard video switchers from brands such as Blackmagic Design, Roland, and NewTek. ZCams can be remotely controlled with fine-tuned settings for camera exposure, white balance, noise reduction, and more.
