Joystick Control- Invert Tilt

I just finished setting up the PT-JOY-G3 joystick with PT30X-SDI-WH-G2 and was looking for a way to invert the tilt control of the actual joystick. By default when the joystick is pushed upward it tilts the camera upward however it is intuitive for me to operate the camera in the inverse way where pushing the joystick up actually tilts the camera downward. Is it possible to configure the PT-JOY-G3 to do this? I thought this would be a feature within the joystick setup but was not able to find it, perhaps I am missing it? If this currently does not exist, feature request for a future firmware upgrade? Thanks!

Hi Nate,

This is in our current firmware for the PT-JOY-G3 & HC-JOY-G3 joystick controllers.

The new firmware includes a number of new updates for the PT-JOY-G3 such as the following:

Ability to invert control at the joystick from the joysticks OSD

Ability to utilize UDP or TCP for control of cameras

Ability to use custom defined TCP / UDP ports for control of cameras

Ability to push and hold 'ESC' to lock the joystick; simply press and hold 'ESC' again to release

PTZOptics default ports: TCP (5678) or UDP (1259)

To get this firmware simply reach out to with the serial number of your joystick controller and they'll be happy to supply you with the latest and greatest firmware.

If you have any questions or suggestions in the future please don't hesitate to come back.
