Tilt and Pan or PT cameras bring a powerful punch to the benefit of the digital video security and surveillance world. These cameras allow your system to reap the powerful benefit of camera movement. Most PT cameras also offer a third feature, zoom. When this is the case the camera is usually referred to as a PTZ camera.
PT cameras have been used in the video security and surveillance world for quite some time; even when the systems operated in a totally analog format. However, as technology has increased, cameras have become more powerful in function and lighter in weight as well as more versatile in application. Now, digital video cameras with PT functions are much more easily controlled.
