PTZ stands for Pan-Tilt-Zoom. PTZ cameras come with the ability to look in virtually any direction and zoom in or out. These cameras typically have a 355° rotation, 90° tilt range, and rapid 100° per second panning speed.
An important feature of PTZ cameras is the ability to be programmed with extensive monitoring tours. This means that you can manually program the camera to automatically cycle between one important area to another, including zooms. Some models even come with already programmed preset tours that will continuously move from location to location for maximum coverage. You can also manually adjust the field of view of PTZ cameras at any time from any connected smart device or the DVR / NVR PTZ settings.
