The PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) camera can display images

reproduction, and is ideal for taking pictures or

and a tilt range of 120 degrees. Both the pan
and tilt speeds are variable within the range of
.25 to 60 degrees a second, so the camera can
capture both fast and slow moving objects with
minimal rocking vibration. The camera also
includes a 12X optical auto focus zooming lens,
which allows for a zoom capability of up to 48X
when used in combination with the 4X digital
