Frequently Asked HuddleCamHD Joystick Questions

Can this joystick control my Sony PTZ cameras?

This joystick can control most cameras with an 8-pin mini din connection using SONY VISCA protocols.

What cabling do I need to purchase to control my first PTZ camera with this joystick?

The joystick includes a DB9 to 8-pin mini din connection cable. But if you need to extend the cabling from your joystick to your remotely control PTZ camera you will need a DB9 extender. Consider learning about these cables at here.

What cabling do I need to control multiple PTZ cameras in a daisy-chain?

Most PTZ cameras have a PTZ camera control IN port and an OUT port. You can use these ports to daisy-chain PTZ camera controls without having to run individual cables to each camera. You can use what is called a “Cascade Cable” to bridge the IN and OUT ports of these ptz cameras. Check out the HuddleCamHD Cables page to learn more about our 8-pin mini-din cascade cables you can use to cascade PTZ camera controls with your joystick controller.

So far I really like the camera - we use it for streamed classes in a room of 20-30 people. It allows our teacher online to see everyone in the class without me getting up to 'steer' a camera angle

Easy setup, works a treat (very clear) with Vidyo, Skype etc. Lots of useful functions, pan, zoom etc. with a good sized remote.

Alan Courtenay from Auckland, New Zealand

We've been installing these for a couple of years so far, and they've been great. These nicely fill that niche between the clip-on 'skype' cams and the super high-dollar cameras that are simply more than many offices require. Always speedy delivery and we have yet to see a defect with a single camera.
