The OTTICA™ 4K PTZ Video Camera from Ikan is a broadcast-quality PTZ camera that utilizes NDI | HX. Using this high-efficiency low-bandwidth protocol, you can transmit a 4K video signal at 60Hz with low latency while ensuring that your network will not get bogged down. The camera features a 1/2.5″ Sony CMOS sensor and varifocal lens with 12x zoom to capture videos at a maximum resolution of 4K progressive at 60fps. It supports NDI|HX2, HDMI, USB3.0 outputs simultaneously. Additionally, it supports RS-232, RS-485, POE (802.3af), and audio-in connectivity. Combine this camera with our OTTICA IP Camera Controller to control the camera using VISCA, ONVIF, PELCO protocols. The OTTICA-4K works with a wide variety of applications including Broadcast, Education, Medical, Live production, Sports, Film, Theater, Worship, and more.
The high-quality Sony CMOS sensor and advanced ISP processing algorithms provide vivid images with a strong sense of depth, high resolution, and color rendition. The OTTICA-4K supports H.265/H.264 encoding which will ensure your video signal is consistent & 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 only uses around 10Mbps (approximately 1/10th of full-bandwidth NDI), which is a significant reduction in bandwidth required for sending the video data stream through the network.
Superb High-definition Image
The OTTICA™ 4K employs a 1/2.5 inch high-quality Sony CMOS sensor and supports resolutions up to 3840×2160 with frame rates up to 60 fps. Supported outputs include HDMI, USB3.0, & LAN (NDI|HX) simultaneously.
Variable Optical Zoom Lens
The camera includes a varifocal lens with 12x optical zoom capability without distortion. The Horizontal Viewing Angle with a 12x zoom is 7.59° and 80.4° when fully zoomed out. The Vertical Viewing Angle with a 12x zoom is 4.6° and 50.0° when fully zoomed out.
Auto Focus Technology
The OTTICA™ 4K 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.
RS-232 Cascade Function
The OTTICA™ 4K supports RS-232 cascade function which is convenient for installation. 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 Through Web Client
After using “Advanced IP Scanner” to find the OTTICA™ 4K’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.
Multiple Audio/Video Compression Standards
The OTTICA-4K uses various compression methods for different inputs/outputs. They are as follows:
USB3.0: MJPG, H.264, YUY2 and NV12
Audio-In Port: AAC, MP3 and G.711A
Ikan’s OTTICA cameras do not require the additional purchase of an NDI License to use and/or operate. Licensing is already included in the camera pricing.
