Pan, Tilt, Zoom (PTZ) on iPhone, iPad

 

Overview

 

Some cameras support panning, tilting and zooming, or some subset of those features. Streamie supports PTZ functionality with ONVIF-capable cameras.

 

Camera Setup

 

While configuring your ONVIF camera, Streamie will determine if the camera has supported PTZ functionality and provide some controls for fine-tuning the PTZ behavior.

 

PTZ Config

 

Start streaming the camera. Tap once on the camera to bring up the Options alert for the camera. If Streamie is aware that the camera supports PTZ, you’ll see a PTZ Controls option.

 

PTZ Options

 

Select that option to enable PTZ mode for that camera. A red border will appear around the camera, indicating that this mode is active. Tap anywhere in the camera to disable PTZ mode.
