These cameras feature function panoramic 360 ° and tilt from - 25 to 205 °, since these systems rotate 45 ° horizontally eight times, so that the operator can display the same number of thumbnails in a separate window and perform up to 256 preset positions.
The management is done with software that centralizes all cameras PTZ network for viewing images in real time, which are also stored in the device's memory card and a server.
