Finnicky to steer, but it may be my configuration
Reviewed in the United States on March 21, 2019
I'm using this camera on a Vidyo HD-3 videoconference endpoint. I have extensive experience installing and maintaining videoconference equipment, and managing multi-point calls using different codec platforms. This was my first time using this camera <<in this configuration>>. This camera is the exact same one that is used with the Logitech Group combo, but with a 5 pin DIN connector straight through to the console. This one has the 5 pin DIN connection, but Logitech uses a 5 pin DIN to USB 2.0 adapter cable with a power injector to make this one go. I also have a USB extender setup that is rated at a max of 150 feet - but I'm only using a 20 foot Cat 6 cable for the extension. So, that stated, it seems a little sensitive to control. It's really meant for fixed operation, but you can steer it to a position and park it there. However, I find myself overshooting my target, going too much up or down, and finding it difficult to control the zoom. It takes a bit of fiddling around to get it in position. The remote that comes with it is better for steering it, but not much more, than the Vidyo remote I typically use. The remote that comes with this camera has three programmable positions. I recommend the user do all the fiddling around to get it where they want it, then save the setting. That way it's easy to go back to that location/zoom configuration. Knowing the limitations and the price point I found this one at, I would consider another purchase, but I'd probably take another look to see what's available. No mic with this camera so no sound quality to rate.
