The GA230-PTZ-OTTICA is a specialized bundle that includes the E-Image GA230-PTZ 2-stage aluminum tripod kit, an included P6 quick release plate, and the Ikan OTTICA NDI®|HX PTZ camera. Because of the OTTICA’s PTZ functions, the need for a fluid head is eliminated. The GA230-PTZ replaces the fluid head with a P6 quick release plate. The OTTICA video camera from Ikan features a 1/2.8″ CMOS sensor and a 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 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 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), and wireless LAN interfaces. 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.
SUPER-WIDE HEIGHT RANGE
The geared center column of the tripod can extend 18″ and lock in place for high-angle shots. This tripod has a height range of 33.25″ to 92″, and is topped off by a flat mounting base with a 3/8-16 threaded screw.
MULTIPLE MOUNTING POINTS
The quick-release plate incorporates a bubble level to assure proper head alignment when shooting.
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.
The OTTICA camera is NOT compatible with the Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio HD at 1080p 60fps. It is, however, compatible with any other video switcher including Black Magic’s other ATEM switchers such as the ATEM Mini & ATEM Mini Pro.
