Datavideo PTC-305 Overview
Auto tracked images are captured by an advanced ultra-high definition camera system.

In addition to the smart tracking features, the camera can be set to actively adapt image sharpness using advanced 3D noise reduction technology.
The rear panel of the PTC-305 sports multiple video output options to match the specific needs of diverse live broadcast ecosystems. Simultaneous 4K60 output signals may be sent over HDMI 2.0 and IP connections. An additional 3G-SDI output is available for 1080p60 video.
