Just bought a Sony Robotic Camera to use in sporting events, but due to budget constraints, did not purchase a controller (also trying to keep the equipment I bring to shoots to a minimum). I have found a free controller program I can use to control the camera, but to do so, I have to toggle between it and vMix. What I would like is to be able to control the camera through vMix somehow...maybe using shortcut keys to control the movement and speed of movement. Any ideas?

Check out PTZ camera control
I've used this software and it works great. Even has a demo so you can ty it out first.

If it uses the Pelco-D protocol, I would be interested in this too. And I don't mind doing the work

Great pickup Ed. Looks like it will work on older O/S's too so a reat way to build a cheap dedicateded controller. Buy/recycle an old PC add the Camera Control...all for under $100.00! Bonus.
