Hi

Is it anyone that has experience of using the PTZ camera UV510A from Minrray together with vMix?
Does the PTZ controls in vMix work with this camera over CAT-cable?
How do you experience the latency using the camera with NDI (NDI-HX)? Is there problem with delay or similar?

Any other experiences that are good to know before buying this camera?

Thanks :)

Update: Have got documentation from the manufacturer that the PTZ controls in vMix should work with the cameras. I have orderd one camera for testing. I will get back when I tested it out.

We bought the Minrray 20x NDI HDX camera and decided to swap it out, taking the place of the PTZ Optics camera 12x, for the higher zoom. Video quality is fine. Camera seems solid. BUT, getting it to work in vMix with PTZ is another matter.

You say it works like a charm with vmix. How do I set it up to use PTZ so I can control the camera and set inputs for presets and such? Our 30x ptzoptics cam is a cinch to setup, but I've tried every option in the PTZ control screen and none of them will make the camera move/zoom. Any suggestions??

UPDATE: somehow restarting vMix solved the problem. I could see the video through vMix and the Minrray, but a restart of vMix also brought PTZ control back. Strage, but that's fine. It works now.

UPDATE: I have now received 2 Minrray PTZ UV510A with NDI and PoE and the Minrray PTZ control KBD2000. I have connected the cameras to the control and to vMix. Everything works without problems.

If you have some basic knowledge about computer networking, it was no problem and not difficult. The important thing is to keep the devices on the same subnet.

Video via NDI works well. Maybe around 1-1.5 frames delay according to my first quick tests but nothing you notice that much. I had more delay when I connected it via SDI through Blackmagic Ultrastudio Mini via Thunderbolt 3. That was a bit strange but so was my test results.

PTZ control from vMix works fine without problems. Can control the camera and program different presets on different inputs.

There is nothing wrong with the video quality. Feels fully acceptable for a 1/2.8" sensor.

Overall I am very happy with the cameras this far and they had a very good price compared to other PTZ cameras.
