The NTV8 range are 1080p PTZ tracking cameras designed to work in lecture theatres, teaching classrooms, meeting rooms and boardrooms. There are currently two different versions, the NTV8-12 with a 12X zoom and 72.5° field of view and the NTV8-20 with a 20X zoom and 60.7° field of view. Each version provides a two camera view for capturing the main target in both wide angles and for zooming into the subject showing fantastic detail. The second camera shows a fixed panorama view.

The cameras are intended to be used in conjunction with our Auto Tracking Configuration Software allowing you to configure the camera to work in a number of different scenarios including a lecture theatre with the speaker being tracked at a distance of up to 20 metres away or alternatively a meeting room or classroom environment.

The Auto Tracking Configuration Software allows you to set areas of the room that you want to block interference from (‘shield’ areas) such as door openings and TV displays. The system also has the capacity to handle a number of other camera inputs including audience and board views. Other functionality allows you to save preset configurations and recall them, set sensitivity parameters such as tracking range, tracking speed and viewing range, lost target setup and output resolution. The camera also includes audio input to synchronise for video streaming.
