Newtek's Studio Monitor app shows us that PTZ control over IP is built into NDI cameras. It just works.

It would be great of vMix could behave similarly. When a PTZ capable NDI camera is added as a source, the app would automatically do whatever is necessary to have PTZ remote control.

Some have also noted that PTZ control via Studio Monitor is more fluid than the current vMix feature. So perhaps there are optimizations to be made.

Why has this not been requested before? Great idea, Michael!

Fair enough, but I think that the behavior of NDI Studio Monitor is exemplary. It points to what's possible. Perhaps we need to convince Newtek to allow others to have an updated SDK.

Dr Cross has responded to the request about the SDK:

"Being the person who actually wrote the Studio Monitor code, I can 100% assure you that there is nothing we are doing that is special at all. It literally makes direct calls to the NDI SDK and does not in any way do anything that the SDK does not support - it actually uses it. The only thing I did is spend quite a bit of time messing with the "feel" of the controls in terms of their sensitivity (their response to mouse movement is actually non linear, etc...)

To the extent that any vendor (even competitors) wants help in knowing what set of commands we use, I would be very happy to share.

Andrew"
