News Image
NewTek, part of the Vizrt Group, has launched the NewTek NDI|®HX PTZ3 Camera.

Offering advanced flexibility and simplicity, the PTZ3 is the first camera on the market to use NDI ®|HX 3, the latest development from NDI. Users can select NDI ®|HX 3 as an option for better video with reduced latency – using a fraction of the bandwidth. Also unique to the PTZ3, is professional-level audio connectivity, raising the bar for audio quality in PTZ cameras everywhere.

The PTZ3 is an affordable, IP-based pan-tilt-zoom camera that delivers high-quality, high-definition video to the network and interoperability with any of the thousands of applications that support NDI. With single cable connectivity, the PTZ3 allows everyone, including video professionals, technology managers, and A/V systems integrators to explore new ways to expand, grow, and evolve productions using their network, while simultaneously streamlining integration and installation by incorporating power over Ethernet.

"The PTZ3 overcomes some common challenges that have impacted PTZ usability in the past through an innovative approach to preset recalls, low latency and high quality with NDI ®|HX 3, and single cable connection," commented William Waters, Head of Product Management, NewTek

NewTek was the first to deliver a PTZ camera that used the revolutionary NDI technology, the world’s largest and fastest-growing IP production protocol. NDI devices simply appear on the network automatically and can be easily integrated into any workflow. By continuing to work closely with the NDI team, NewTek have been able to develop, from the ground up, the PTZ3, breaking the mold yet again. With the integration of NDI ®|HX 3; the PTZ3 gives the option to deliver low latency transmission with reduced bandwidth, while maintaining the visually lossless standards NDI users demand.

The NewTek PTZ3 enhances audio connectivity by featuring a professional mini-XLR mic input connection in addition to a line level mini-jack. Delivering clean, balanced audio directly from the camera into the NDI network, customers and integrators will have confidence their audio maintains the highest fidelity. Further, once on the NDI network, the PTZ3 audio can be routed, mixed, enhanced, and distributed to thousands of devices and software providing unprecedented levels of creative flexibility.

With one cable for power and connectivity, no other camera on the market offers this level of simplicity and control; eliminating the need for, and the increasing cost of, long cable runs, complex setups, and management time to maintain. The NewTek PTZ3 can be added into any workflow with a single ethernet cable for HD video up to 1080/60p, audio, PTZ presets and control, tally, and PoE. Users can remotely control the camera from any device via NDI. When combined with NDI Studio Monitor, users can operate the camera through commonly available control devices, even including gaming controllers, reducing the cost of entry into camera control systems.

"As part of the Vizrt Group family, NewTek works closely with NDI to harness its power of connection and fuse it into the DNA of our products and solutions. We are proud to pioneer a future-proofed PTZ camera that offers unparalleled flexibility that meets the fast-evolving needs of the market," continued William Waters, Head of Product Management, NewTek.

Simplicity and flexibility are not only showcased in the myriad of new features in NewTek’s PTZ3, but the latest model is also shipped with ceiling and wall mounts and is available in black or white to better match where the camera is needed, whether it be for a studio, classroom, hospital, corporate meeting space, or live event venue.
