Using PTZ Cameras

The ENHD16 HD and Legacy Analog to IP Signal Encoder supports coaxial communication with HD cameras using its UTC (Up-the-Coax) Coaxitron feature or through an RS-485 connection for legacy cameras. Once connected and set up, users may control their PTZ cameras through the system.

This article will outline how to set up the ENHD16 Compressor for PTZ communication with both HD analog PTZ cameras and legacy analog PTZ cameras.

Note:  Before starting, make sure that you know the Protocol and Baudrate of your camera.  If you do not know the Protocol or Baudrate of the camera, check its user manual or reboot the camera and check its initial boot screen for the information.
