As you are probably well aware by now, Stream Dudes love companies that make cool products that are affordable, yet provide a real quality and value to our customers. When the “Dudes” came across PTZOptics, we were immediately floored by their products as well as their entire company philosophy. For a company that was only founded in 2014, their team of experienced engineers knew how to build and design good PTZ cameras long before the solar panels at their headquarters (Yes, the majority of their office in Downington, PA is powered by the sun!) were ever installed. That being said, don’t let their age fool you- these guys do PTZ cameras right, and Stream Dudes is proud to be a PTZOptics Authorized Dealer.

For starters, what is a PTZ camera and what is all the fuss about? Well, for those of you unfamiliar with the lingo, PTZ stands for Pan, Tilt and Zoom. This basically means that via a remote controller (physical or software based) a single user can adjust all three movements singlehandedly, in addition to adjusting focus, assigning preset positions and even controlling multiple cameras at once. This is why PTZ cameras are popular in Houses of Worship, municipalities or any place where multiple camera angles are desired, but staff might be limited. PTZOptics not only builds cameras to address the need for control, but they are also very competitively priced and offer amazing installation flexibility.
