Raytec has announced an IR System specifically designed for use with Pan Tilt cameras. using IR with PTZs can be problematic unless the illuminators are designed to match the range of coverage of the PTZ. This is especially hard given the broad coverage area a PTZ offers. From a look at the design, it does not seem built for Speeddomes which would certainly limit its applicability.
