Standard PTZ vs. Advanced PTZ

Use Advanced PTZ - because it's awesome.

Do you know the difference between Advanced PTZ and Standard PTZ control in Nx Witness? Standard PTZ allows you to zoom in and zoom out, pan and tilt with mouse clicks. Standard PTZ is not as accurate with a slower response times to hone in on a subject. (Yet, faster than our competitors' PTZ controls.)

Now, Nx Witness has integrated some cameras with Advanced PTZ controls. These controls simplify pan, tilt, and zoom actions by allowing the user to fluidly click from object to object, click to zoom, and drag to draw squares on the stream to target and zoom. Tony from the Nx team explains the difference and exhibits how to use them in this video.
