Save Camera Configuration

Is there a way to save the entire camera configuration as a preset (Full menu pages, Exposure, Color, Image, etc). We have been using 2 of our 3 cameras for some outdoor services every other week and I'm tired of manually reseting everything for the inside/outside settings. Hoping there's a way to automate this a bit.

Hello Jason,

Unfortunately, there is no way to save the full set of camera settings as a preset on the camera. 

You would need to adjust the various options each time it is moved. 

Its a relatively higher end PTZ camera system whose base application provided to control it resets almost everything to its factory defaults each time you launch it.  Its been a super mega convenient feature for all my non-tech users trying to run these cameras.

Hi Jason Davis,

There is no direct method, on camera, to accomplish what you are inquiring about.

This can be, to a large degree, handled using a simple click-to-run python script though.

I have put together the following example for you to customize as needed for your production(s).

The python file will allow for you to issue any PTZOptics VISCA over IP commands to automatically configure the camera as needed.

PTZOptics VISCA over IP Commands:

This example will handle adjusting the focus, white balance, exposure modes to clearing P/T limits and so much more

To find out more about controlling the cameras in this method and more please find a Knowledge Base article about programming for our cameras

If you have any follow up questions about using python to create easy to set profiles for your cameras please do not hesitate to return to the forums.
