Add a high-resolution PTZ camera to your conference room, education setting, live event, house of worship, or remote video conference with this black 4K HDMI/3G-SDI Autotracking PTZ Camera with 12x Optical Zoom from Datavideo. The camera features remote pan, tilt, and zoom control via a remote control or via IP and serial protocols, and its built-in zoom lens offers an optical zoom range of 12x with a 16x digital zoom to view just about any angle in your setting. The camera also features an AI auto-tracking algorithm that allows you to follow the subject automatically.


  • Simultaneous Outputs

    • Connect your PTC-285 to multiple devices in your workflow for flexibility. All the outputs are active at the same time, supporting simultaneous HDMI 2.0 and IP output up to UHD 4K 2160p60 and also 3G-SDI output up to 1080p60.
  • Quick-Access AI & Object Tracking

    • Setting up AI tracking is available via various external controllers such as the included RMC-1 remote control and DVIP controllers (RMC-300A, RMC-180 MARK II, and PTC View Assist). In addition to camera controllers, you can also easily enable AI tracking on smart switchers, which include KMU-200, SHOWCAST 100, and others, as well as complete solution systems like ZR-1 Smart Classroom. If you are capturing multiple people, you can designate a single person for AI tracking. Once set up on the camera, only the designated person will be tracked, avoiding interferences such as the desks, people crossing back and forth, and large objects.
  • Smart PTZ Speed Adaptation

    • The integrated PID algorithm is able to detect the movement speed of the identified object and automatically adjust the camera's corresponding pan, tilt, and zoom speeds in such a way that the lens movement will be smooth, avoiding common camera lens movement problems like jerky movements or unpredicted halts.
  • Low Noise in Low Light

    • Advanced 3D noise reduction technology is also used to further reduce the noise while ensuring image sharpness.
  • Streaming and Network Support

    • The camera supports RTSP and RTMPS protocols, making it easy to stream directly to two different CDN platforms and Datavideo dvCloud.
  • Power over Ethernet

    • The PTC-285 supports PoE for easy installation without the need to find local power outlets or hire an electrician to install outlets wherever you want to mount your camera. Simply run a single Cat 6 cable to power your PTC-285.
  • Tally Lights

    • Green and red lights tally to show the preview and program status for broadcast applications.
  • Wide 80° Field of View

    • The PTC-285 provides a wide field of view of 80°, easily capturing your entire scene.
  • IP and Serial Control

    • Control the camera from a variety of controllers that support multiple network protocols, including Pelco-D, Pelco-P, VISCA, VISCA over IP, and DVIP.
  • Optical Zoom

    • The camera features 12x optical zoom and has a 16x digital zoom.
  • Audio Input

    • Input audio to insert into your output via the mic/line-level 3.5mm stereo audio input.
