Article Heading: Axis T8311 Joystick

In v3.0 DW Spectrum introduced the ability to use the Axis T8311 Joystick to control live PTZ cameras on Windows OS-based computers.

How to Setup & Use the Axis T8311 Joystick

  1. Plugin the Axis T8311 Joystick to the computer that you will be using.
    * The drivers should be automatically installed by Windows and the device should be recognized.
  2. If your DW Spectrum Desktop app is open when you plugged in the joystick, restart your DW Spectrum Desktop. If not, open DW Spectrum Desktop.
  3. Open the PTZ camera you would like to control with the Joystick and click on the PTZ icon with your mouse.
  4. Use the Joystick to Pan, Tilt, and Zoom the camera.

Why does DW Spectrum only support one joystick controller for PTZ?

  1. IP cameras are network-based and have latency, making joystick control....not great.
  2. DW Spectrum has Advanced PTZ - a feature that makes analog joysticks seem....well, outdated.
