Tactile PTZ Control. The BirdDog PTZ Keyboard is a solution for moving PTZ camera control off of a screen and into your hands. You’ll get finer control and a faster workflow with a joystick and zoom rocker switch. The keyboard also has dedicated exposure, white balance, and focus knobs.
NDI & Much More. This BirdDog controller is compatible with cameras using NDI, NDI|HX, Visca over IP, RS-422, and RS-232 protocols. When using NDI, users can take advantage of audio intercom support using BirdDog Comms.
Power. This keyboard can be powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE), the serial port, or with the included AC adapter.

Yes! We recommend the NewTek TriCaster Mini Advanced HD-4 SDI Switcher Bundle that can control up to 8 networked NDI devices. The Livestream Studio HD550 4K Live Production Switcher will also control NDI cameras, but the implementation is less robust.
