Audio over SDI

Welcome to the PTZOptics forum(s)!


This thread has been created for end users to discuss the topic of PTZOptics potentially adding audio over the SDI capabilities to the camera line.


Please make sure to respect the experience level(s) of all users at all times when posting within our forums or your account may have access removed.



Currently PTZOptics cameras provide audio output via IP, USB and HDMI.


Please provide any thoughts or feelings on the potential addition of audio via the SDI output on the PTZOptics camera line.

So if I understand this thread that PTZOptics cameras don't support audio over SDI, so now I have to run a second line and remux the audio back as I want to convert back to HDMI because I need to run the feeds from two cameras into another building.

For our setup, audio over SDI is more or less essential. We would like to put 3 ptz camera’s in a multicam system. We would use SDI instead of NDI for low latency. If the SDI would als cary the audiosignal, we would be able to connect a wireless receiver at each camera and in that way eliminate any audio re-syncing problem. 
I suppose this will not be possible to implement through a firmware update and would need a hardware update (gen 3), right?


Hi Joris,


Unfortunately you are correct that this is a hardware change, rather than a respectively easy firmware update to add Audio over SDI.


The only other option currently would be to utilize an audio injector to add audio to the SDI feed.


Please do look for such features in the coming generation of PTZOptics cameras.
