Ross announces new members of their PTZ family

Ross has recently announced the launch of the new X-series of Pan/Tilt heads along with two new Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras.

The X350 and X300 are compact models suited for remote camera applications on a discrete context where compact head/camera/lens solution is required.

The X350 includes these features: a 5 inches color touchscreen for setup, local control and integrated tally, integrated VS/AR tracking for virtual sets and augmented/extended reality, anti-backlash gearing, cascaded camera connections for power, control and gunlock and MotionDirector for movement and keyframed moves. Whereas the X300 offers less features.

“Both models are compatible with our free DashBoard control software,” notes Bruce Takasaki, Marketing Product Manager, Robotics and Cameras. “When you consider feature set, affordability and the potential for integration into a custom control solution, the X-Series represents a tightly integrated solution that’s ideal for a wide range of production environments and applications.”

Also, Ross Video has launched 4K UHD PTZ cameras, the PTZ-12G and the PTZ-NDI, feature a 9.17megapixel, 1/1.8 inch CMOS sensor. These cameras are able capture full 4K UHD 60fps and progressive HD video. The Ethernet interface enables single cable connectivity, providing remote control via IP VISCA protocol, video output using 4K UHD IP Streaming, and Power over Ethernet – all over a standard CAT5E cable and not forgetting the option to go the NDI workflow route.

“We’re incredibly excited to introduce these new PTZ cameras and heads,” comments Takasaki. “The cameras and heads both represent excellent value and addition of free DashBoard control means that customers who work in, for example, corporate, house of worship or legislative environments and need compact, affordable remote camera solutions now have even wider options from Ross.”
