PTZ stands for and signifies the camera's ability to Pan, Tilt and Zoom. This means that the camera can be controlled from a remote location, such as a control room, a keyboard/joystick in an office or in a security watch room.
Typical PTZ applications are extensive areas that would require such a large number of static CCTV cameras that would exceed the budget for equipment and labour.
Many static CCTV cameras, optimally focussed on risk areas are always more effective, but PTZ cameras provide a good bridge between requirement and cost.
Additionally when security staff are employed or the camera includes the PTZ Object Tracing function, objects can be followed at a high optical zoom level and produce high quality crime scene evidence.
