We are pleased to announce with the two (2) most recent firmware revisions that a form of Tally has been added to the PTZOptics P/T/Z camera line.


Currently Supported Models

  • PT12X-SDI-XX-G2 (PoE Version)

  • PT20X-SDI-XX-G2 (PoE Version)
  • PT20X-NDI-XX
  • PT30X-SDI-XX-G2

This new feature will allow the PTZOptics STANDBY light, on the front of the camera, to act as a tally indicator.


The feature is natively built-in to any camera being utilized via NDI as long as the production software supports the NDI Tally feature.


The following VISCA / VISCA over IP commands will allow you to trigger the cameras Tally Lights if your system supports custom tally commands.


Tally OFF: 81 0A 02 02 03 FF


Tally BLINK: 81 0A 02 02 01 FF


Tally ON:  81 0A 02 02 02 FF


We hope that you enjoy this new feature and while not perfect, as it is a tiny light, it is a step in the right direction.


As always we appreciate any feedback you our wonderful customers have on this new feature.
