FAQ

What cameras are supported? +

See below.

  1. PTZOptics-20X-SDI GEN-2
  2. Amcrest ProHD 1080P POE

How does it work? +

Using artificial intelligence / machine learning, the PTZ Follow Me application will monitor the live stream from your camera and keep the subject where you want them.

Does it only focus in center? +

No! Using the X/Y Target sliders, you can move the target square around to where you want it. The software will then track your target close to that location

What PTZ controls does it support? +

Depending on the camera, the application can support:

  • Up
  • Down
  • Left
  • Right
  • Home
  • Absolute Pan
  • Absolute Tilt
  • Zoom

Pan and Tilt speeds are also configurable.

What if I don't want it to control? +

Auto-control can be turned on and off. Sometimes, if you know your subject is going to exit stage, or you know you want a fixed frame, you can simply turn off auto-control!

What's the Dummy Camera? +

That's me! You can watch an example video showing the subject detection. The video was controlled with an old version, so it's a little clunky, but we'll fix that ASAP!

Can the app track multiple people? +

Of course! Using some super math, the camera can find relevant targets and track them by centering on them and making sure they're both visible. The app is also smart enough to ignore extra faces like pictures or a TV in the background!

This app is excellent for:

  • Worship Services - Live streaming church services
  • Classroom - Recording teachers or professors in a classroom
  • Webinars - Monitoring and watching webinar subjects
