I need to create an automated camera system with multiple (3) cameras, all panning/zooming/and tilting in a programmed pattern. I need to switch between cameras as part of this pattern, and pipe the entire result to a streaming server. But I can’t seem to find a camera that will work for this.
Can anyone suggest a camera with pan, tilt, and (optical) zoom controls that I could access from oF on OSX?
So far I’ve been focusing on UVC, and I’ve looked into the UVC addon and cameras that claim to be UVC-compatible, but there seem to be many problems on the OSX side. I’d be open to looking into other platforms, but I just want to make sure there is no other option before buying an additional machine.
I’m also open to looking into security cameras instead of conference cams. I haven’t yet looked into whether I’d be able to get a video stream comparable to a USB camera. Has anyone had any luck with these cameras for an application similar to what I described?
