How to describe PTZ camera correctly (including titles, brief introduction, features)

After study the introduction of Sony, Panasonic, JVC etc professional PTZ camera more than 50 times, here   I`d like to drop a conclusion about how to describe PTZ camera correctly.

PTZ camera, it is also called as PTZ Video camera, remote PTZ camera, PTZ Remote Camera, Robotic PTZ network video production camera, PTZ Video Conference Camera, HD Integrated camera etc.

PTZ controller, it is also called as Remote control unit, Joystick remote control panel etc.

Following is our AVL220 series as example

Avlink AVL220 Full High Definition PTZ Remote Camera with SDI and HDMI interface-silver-with 20x optical zoom

Full HD PTZ video camera with SDI and HDMI interface—silver-with a 20x optical zoom can be mounted on a wall, ceiling, floor or a tabletop and includes an IR remote control.

Image quality

It incorporates a 1/2.8-inch CMOS sensor (2.07 million pixels) and a 20x optical zoom lens. The camera captures HD video at 1920 x 1080 resolution and features wide dynamic range with backlight compensation. Its f/1.6-3.5 maximum aperture delivers excellent low-light performance, and its high-sensitivity mode delivers images in darkness as low as 0.01 lux. The camera supports WDR and 3D NR for a clean image. The camera utilises a highly efficient DC motor servo controller to achieve high-speed, quiet, positioning, and you can programm up to 256 position presets.

Video outputs:

standard professionals including HD/SD-SDI, HDMI and SD composite, as well as iP/Network for single cable delivery of high-quality content up to 1080/60p.

Serial control:

Camera control is via the built-in RS-232 / RS-422 interface with the camera supporting VISCA and Pelco-D protocols. The camera’s settings and PTZ control functions can be performed remotely at any location and at high communication speeds via the RS-232/422 interface.

Camera control is possible from the dedicated AVLKC20/30/40 remote control panel, or from a variety of remote units using standard protocol.


255 programmable presets including pan, tilt, and zoom positions, allow the camerato quickly move between predetermined camera positions using the remote, or a dedicated PTZ controller.

Wide Range Pan/Tilt/ Zoom Action

The AVL220 series has a wide shooting area (pan angle from -173° to +173° ; tilt angle from -30° to +90°), as well as quiet, fast, and precise positioning movements.


The camera can be installed and mounted quickly on a wall, ceiling, floor, or a tabletop. The AVL series of integrated full HD cameras perform in a wide variety of onsite shooting application that require high-quality video, such as video conferencing, corporate boardroom, government building, video studio, broadcasting, lives streaming, house of worship, lecture halls, auditoriums, education, remote and e-learning and other events, thanks to its high-performance zoom, wide angle of view and outstanding color reproducibility. It is designed to be used as a standalone remote camera or as part of a multi-camera system in both studio and field environment. The image flip feature allows you to mount the camera on a desktop or the ceiling and adjust the orientation of the image to keep it upright.
