IP PTZ Camera Control

Hi

I've read about but never cared to investigate more (big , stupid, mistake) about the best way to control an IP PTZ camera. We never had to use or propose PTZ cameras. We preferred multi-imager and in our customers applications the results were good. We recently were faced with an application that required PTZ. We went with a PTZ with good PQ and all the bells and whistles .. HD...
