- 02 February, 2023
USA: PTZOptics, leading manufacturer of affordable broadcast-quality robotic cameras announces the Link 4K camera series. The Link 4K will be released later this year and will add video to any existing Dante setup. And with the latest in auto-tracking capabilities and universal compatibility, the Link 4K fits easily into even the most complex Dante design or workflow.
“We are excited to have PTZOptics join the Dante family with their all-new Dante AV-H camera. Dante AV-H brings Dante audio and control to H.264/265 video products, allowing for independent routing of video and audio streams over standard 1 gigabit networks," says Wim Roose, Senior Product Manager for Audinate. "This makes it a perfect fit for conference rooms, classrooms and houses of worship. It's easy to install, takes advantage of existing infrastructure, and allows easy integration with existing audio systems."
The Link 4K is capable of 4K at 60fps over HDMI, USB, and IP. Using technology by Dante, the Link 4K is able to provide 1080p 60fps resolution over Dante AV-H, as well as SDI. The Link 4K offers built-in auto-tracking capabilities - no need to run software on another computer - freeing teams of the need for a camera operator. With 12x, 20x, and 30x optical zoom available, the Link 4K can fit seamlessly into any production scenario.
“The Link 4K marries our industry-leading auto-tracking features with Dante AV-H - something our integration partners have been asking for,” says Matt Davis, Director of Technology and Information Systems at PTZOptics. “We’ve worked hard to create a solution that not only fits seamlessly into any Dante workflow, but will adapt to the future of video technology.”
In addition to the Link 4K’s auto-tracking features, users will also have access to PTZOptics’ latest Web UI - updated to provide everything users need in one simple menu. Almost every feature in the Web UI has a tutorial function, perfect for novice producers navigating the settings for the first time.
The Link 4K is expected for release in Q2. For more information, please visit.
