PTZ Control Wrapper

The PTZ Control Wrapper is a component of the Pelco SDK. Specifically it is a library that enables PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) camera action calls on an Endura network (which includes returning the absolute position of Pelco camera domes), as well as encompassing Preset and Pattern action calls. You can use this component as a DLL on Windows. It is an alternative to using the PositioningControl web service and portions of the ScriptControl web service directly.

To use this library, you need the camera's:

  • IP address
  • Port number
  • Service ID number (usually one unless this number represents a channel in a multichannel encoder)

For details on using the PTZ Control Wrapper, see the Pelco SDK Programming Guide.
