Would love to have support for the PTR-10 from Datavideo.

It's a Pan/Tilt head which allows to mount your own camera to it and use any camera as a PTZ. Since it converts DVIP to LANC, it allows you to use the zoom and focus of the cam as well.

Link to PTR-10 product page: https://datavideo.com/us/product/PTR-10

DVIP protocol: http://www.resource.data...TC-150_DVIP_Protocol.pdf


Especially for those who, like me, use large sensor camera's, it doesn't really make sense to use PTZ cams with smaller sensors and use them in the same production. Low light performance, depth of field and look and feel are never the same, even with 1 inch sensor PTZ. PTR-10 can solve this, it can make us use the same cams across the production, and create an even look across the production.

DVIP is an ip protocol, similar to VISCA over IP, with an extra two-byte header. It shouldn't be hard to implement and is well documented.

this would be an excellent addition.. current PTZ cameras and the way they are implemented in vmix feels like glorified security cameras.. being able to use larger sensor cameras would be great for more cinematic looking images..

Id also like to see some way of being able to ramp up/down speed of the PTZ.. maybe this head supports something natively ? the jerkiness of movement in vmix currently makes trying to use any real time panning look ugly..

+1 Definitely a good idea. I just purchased one and unfortunately had to find out that VMix does not support this device, would be wonderful to see this implemented sometime soon! :)
