Vaddio, the global leader in robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, today released a major software update to its USB Camera line. The free Version 1.1 software update allows ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ camera users the ability to control the camera from any computer or mobile device that supports a web browser.
“When we launched our EasyUSB camera systems we knew that our customers would demand a more sophisticated control approach than a traditional IR Remote Control,” explains Vaddio CEO, Rob Sheeley. “By connecting to the camera’s Ethernet port, users can now browse to the embedded web server built into the camera and have complete control of the camera by using the preconfigured web page user control panel.”
Internal web pages within the camera allow control of the HD-USB camera via Internet connection through a standard web browser. Users can now adjust pan, tilt, zoom and home controls, as well as pan, tilt and zoom speed controls; switch video sources, and store and recall six camera presets. Administrators have the additional ability to control security passwords, change the IP address, view diagnostics, access firmware upgrades and Help settings. The IP address will be displayed onscreen out of the composite, analog component (YPbPr) and the USB video output.
