Introducing our NDI® ZCams

NDI cameras offer numerous advantages, one of the main ones being their versatility and their ability to do several things at once. The ZCam NDI cameras made by PTZOptics offer three main types – 12x, 20x, and POV – so that you always get the perfect camera for your needs. In fact, if you need a video camera that you can use for both live-streaming and for filming high-end video productions, this is a great camera to choose from. With this camera, you get tons of advantages and perks, including:


  • Advanced white balance modes that allow for one-push and new Kelvin temperature scale.
  • Both 2D and 3D noise reduction thanks to its low-noise CMOS sensor.
  • Broadcast frame rates of 1080p59.94/29.97, 1080i59.94, and 720p59.94.
  • Full frame rates of 1080p-60/50/30/25, 1080-60/50, and 720p-60/50/30/25.
  • The wide dynamic range allows for excellent results even in low-lighting scenarios.


When it comes to high-tech features, in fact, this camera has it all, and with prices that start at around $900, you won’t have to break the bank just to get a reliable camera that you’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without.


All houses of worship deserve to have top-notch video cameras that don’t cost a fortune, and this camera definitely falls into that category. One of the biggest perks is that you likely won’t have to rush out and buy additional software because the camera works with most video-conferencing software on the market, including vMix, MimoLive, Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), Wirecast, Livestream Studio, and xSplit, among others. In fact, anytime you need video shots of classes, sermons, or anything else for that matter, this PTZOptics NDI camera is the one you’ll want.


For those of you who love statistics and numbers, there is even better news with this camera. It offers a frame rate of up to 60 FPS (frames per second) and 30 FPS with a live stream, aspect ratios of 4:3 and 16:9, video outputs that include both video over Ethernet and 3G-SDI, and an output resolution range of 720p30 to 1080p60.


But while these numbers are impressive, all you really have to know is that this is a high-quality, sturdy camera that allows for excellent images and sounds and that it is incredibly useful for all sorts of events. In fact, you get everything you need to ensure that all of your productions come out looking very professional even though you don’t need to be a tech wizard to make that happen, and even though the price you’ll pay for the camera is very reasonable.
