The 19″ PTZ Teleprompter from Ikan is a professional solution for teleprompting with PTZ cameras. The package provides an extra-wide hood assembly to allow considerable movement of the camera within the wide beam splitter glass. The PTZ Teleprompter features a 19″ 1000 cd/m² monitor, 70/30 20″-wide beamsplitter glass, and a 25′ reading range. The teleprompter is designed for use with a wide range of PTZ cameras, as the wide beamsplitter provides for a wide amount of left-right panning. The teleprompter includes a base system that can be easily shifted forward and backwards, which enables mounting the camera to the prompter without requiring counterweights.
The Ikan PTZ Teleprompter system is a unique PTZ teleprompting system that enables the PTZ camera’s pan, tilt and zoom capabilities while still behind the reflective teleprompter glass. You can easily pan the camera between multiple people reading from the same script.
Fully Enclosed PTZ Hood
The PTZ teleprompter features a lightweight hood that fully encloses the PTZ camera, which allows it’s movement to remain unconstrained. The hood includes an opening in the back that gives you quick access to the PTZ cameras inputs and outputs. The opening can be closed with a drawstring which removes the possibility of any light leaks.
The high quality 70/30 Made-in-America teleprompter glass provides the perfect balance of reflection and pass-through without distorting the image. With 1000 nits the prompting image will always be crisp and visible whether you’re under the sun or studio lighting.
Widescreen Talent Monitor w/ Tally
The Teleprompter includes a 19-inch widescreen 3G-SDI Talent Monitor. A new mounting system enables you to conveniently attach the monitor right below the teleprompter to let on-camera talent see their presentations live. The monitor features 3D-SDI, HDMI, and VGA, inputs. The native resolution is 1920 x 1080 HD and max brightness is 1000 nits. The OSD adjustment menu allows adjustment for contrast, brightness, backlight, tint, chroma, sharpness. You can also adjust the intensity of each RGB color channel. Aspect ratio can be set as 16:9, 4:3, full, or it can be set to automatically detect the aspect ratio and set it accordingly. When plugged into a compatible video switcher, the talent monitor utilizes a red/green tally light that lets you know when your camera is live.
The OTTICA™ PTZ Video Camera from Ikan features a 1/2.8″ CMOS sensor and 5.5-110mm varifocal lens with 20x zoom to capture videos at a maximum resolution of 1080p at 60fps. It supports POE (802.3af), HDMI, SDI, Ethernet (NDI|HX), RS-232, RS-485, and audio-in connectivity. The camera uses a step drive motor mechanism and motor drive controller for smooth and noiseless PTZ operation. In addition, it supports H.264/H.265 video compression and AAC, MP3, and G.711A audio compression formats.
Advanced ISP processing algorithms provide vivid images with a strong sense of depth, high resolution, and fantastic color rendition. The OTTICA supports H.265/H.264 encoding which makes motion video fluent and clear even with less than ideal bandwidth conditions. A full-bandwidth NDI 1080p x60 fps video data stream uses approximately 100Mbps, whereas a video data stream using NDI|HX will only require around 10Mbps (approximately 1/10th of full-bandwidth NDI). Using NDI|HX will expand the camera’s compatibility with different types of network options.
SUPERB HIGH-DEFINITION IMAGE
The OTTICA employs 1/2.8 inch high-quality CMOS sensor and supports resolutions up to 1920×1080 with frame rates up to 60 fps. Supported outputs include HDMI,3G-SDI, & wired LAN (NDI|HX). The 3G-SDI will work up to 100 meters in distance with transmission at 1080p60 format.
VARIABLE OPTICAL ZOOM LENS
The camera includes a 5.5-110mm f/1.6-3.5 varifocal lens with a viewing angle ranging from 3.3° to 54.7° and offers 20x optical zoom.
AUTO FOCUS TECHNOLOGY
The OTTICA™ employs an autofocus algorithm that ensures the len’s focusing performance is lens fast, accurate, and stable.
LOW NOISE AND HIGH SNR
The Low Noise CMOS effectively ensures the camera’s high SNR. Advanced 2D/3D noise reduction technology is also used to further reduce the noise while ensuring image sharpness.
By adopting a high accuracy step-driving motor mechanism, the OTTICA™ performs smoothly and quietly even when moving quickly to any position.
LOW-POWER SLEEP FUNCTION
The OTTICA™ supports a low-power sleep/wake up function. The consumption is lower than 500mW while in sleep mode.
RS-232 CASCADE FUNCTION
The OTTICA™ supports RS-232 cascade function which is convenient for installing. One cable is included in the box.
255 PRESETS POSITIONS
You can program up to 255 preset camera positions (10 presets by IR remote).
CONTROL CAMERA OVER IP THROUGH WEB CLIENT
After using “Advanced IP Scanner” to find the OTTICA’s IP address, input the camera IP address in the URL bar of your browser and click the “Enter” button to proceed to the Web Client login page. This web client will allow you to control various parameters including pan, tilt, zoom, exposure, shutter speed, focus, color temperature, sound, preset positions, compression format, resolution, bitrate, framerate, noise reduction, character displays, and many more.
SUPPORTS MULTIPLE CONTROL PROTOCOLS
VISCA, IP VISCA, PELCO-D, PELCO-P, ONVIF protocols are supported and can also be automatically recognized right out of the box. The OTTICA can be directly controlled from either within software like OBS, using NDI|HX, or from the Web Client using the camera IP address in a browser tab.
Optional hardware controller sold separately HERE.
WALL MOUNT INCLUDED
The included OTTICA PTZ Camera Wall Mount will support the OTTICA camera using a 1/4″-20 screw on the bottom. Attaching the camera and mount directly to the wall will provide you with a sturdy long-term mounting solution. Additional wall mounts can be purchased HERE.

Note: The bottom piece is flat and ensures support for any sized camera with a 1/4″-20 thread.
The PTZ Teleprompter includes a long rail which allows you to easily balance your entire teleprompter setup. The teleprompter base can be easily moved forwards and backwards until the perfect balance is set.
The pedestal’s pneumatic column utilizes the Easy-Adjust lever for an effortless on-shot stroke of 12.75″. The total height adjustment of this system is 41 to 73 inches, while the center column supports up to 44 pounds. An adjustable mid-level spreader adds stability to the center column.
The 100mm Flat Base includes a 3/8″-16 mounting screw at the top and is designed to mount the 19″ PTZ Teleprompter System. The 100mm Flat Base provides 12° of preliminary tilt adjustment. This will help remove the teleprompter monitor from your camera shot if you’re shooting at a wide focal length. After finalizing your preliminary tilt adjustment, your PTZ Camera can be used for primary panning & tilting adjustments moving forward.
The EI-7004B dolly features 4″ locking rubber wheels with a capacity of 132.3 pounds. This system has a working footprint of 39.4 inches and has height-adjustable cable guards. Each dolly system is easy to fold with its handle and single wingnut for transport in the DB-01 carrying bag (included).
