    Super Slow Pan/Tilt
    of min. 0.1°/sec. Extremely slow movement of 0.1°/sec. offers a good look at the scene even at high zoom rates.

    Extremely Silent Operation
    Operating noise of Direct Drive is approx. 20% lower than
    normal stepping motor system, which is especially suitable for the usage of classic concert, church and so on.

    High Accuracy of +/-0.03° for Preset Positions
    Adjusts to preset positions with high accuracy, offset less
    than 0.03°. Maintains precise shooting positions even at
    high magnification with virtually no deviation.
    Powerful 30x Optical Zoom
    Equipped with 30x optical zoom, the KY-PZ100 is capable of capturing distant subjects. Even in a grand hall or auditorium,the speaker’s expressions and handwriting on a board will be clearly captured. 12x digital zoom is also available.
    Simultaneous Output of 3G-SDI and HDMI in addition to IP
    Simultaneous digital output capability, with up to1920x1080/60p video through 3G-SDI/HDMI/IP, makes the KY-PZ100 ideal for webcasting as well as viewing and recording of conferences, lectures, and other live events
    microSDHC/microSDXC Card Recording and File Upload Capability
    The KY-PZ100 features a built-in digital recorder that records HD from 5Mbps to 50Mbps directly to
    microSDHC/microSDXC card. Recordings can be uploaded from the camera to an external server.
    100 Preset Positions and Settings
    Up to 100 points of PTZ positions and other settings such as focus and white balance can be memorized on the camera.
    PoE+ for Simple and Flexible Installation
    You can reduce installation cost with the KY-PZ100 that supports PoE+ (Power-over-Ethernet), which is capable of carrying IP video, audio control and power over a single connection cable.

    Note for all kind of USB Adapters
    The connection to a network will be made by the USB Host Port of the camcorder (on the right back end side of the camcorder). Please select the device which you are going to use: WIFI dongle / 3G/4G dongle or a CAT Network adapter.The Adapter you going to be use must be a registered Adapter (see attached compatible list), cause all of these Adapter needs dedicate drivers, which to be implemented into the camcorder.In the case for LTE adapters, there must be done a pre-set of these dongles in your local PC first!
