Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera Control

VidGuard lets you control one or more pan/tilt/zoom cameras from a PC's COM port. Most PCs have an RS-232 port, and adapter cards and level converters let you use virtually any other serial protocol, e.g. RS-422.

Proportional PTZ control

Proportional PTZ control is a feature of VidGuard that lets you control all three axis of a PTZ camera simultaneously, just by clicking on the screen. This makes it much easier to control the camera, particularly if you need to track moving objects.
Proportional PTZ is always enabled on browser windows that have PTZ control configured.

When you move the mouse over the video display area of a PTZ enabled browser, you will see the mouse cursor change to a target shape.

To pan the camera left or right, click the left button of the mouse near the left or right side of the video display area. You tilt the camera up or down similarly. The faster you click, the faster the camera moves.

To zoom in, hold the Shift key down while you click.

To zoom out, hold the Ctrl key down while you click.

VidGuard will attempt to move the camera so it is centered over where you click on the video display area. This lets you track a moving object by clicking on the object as it moves. You zoom in or out by holding down the Shift or Ctrl keys as you click.
