there are several ways to pull the video feed from a PTZoptics camera into Vmix. first in section 1 there has a very helpful video from Vmix on how to create an input and giving you an overview on how the different methods are performed. sections 2 and 3 go into specifically adding a source with the PTZoptics camera. section 2 deals with standard connections (HDMI, SDI, USB) and second 3 deals with some of the network video (RTSP, NDI).


Section 1: General Vmix adding input overview.







Section 2: USB 3.0, HD-SDI, HDMI.


In this video Andrew Chatfield lead support engineer for vMix walks through how to integrate PTZOptics cameras with vMix. It's actually quite easy and you can do so in a couple ways. One way that Andy shows is simply plugging into your computer running vMix with a USB Cable. You can also use a frame grabber to convert HDMI or HD-SDI to a USB and connect to your computer.


Section 3: Pulling in IP video 


Below is a video demonstrating how to pull IP video Into Vmix. please note that this will require you to have the computer and the camera on the same subnet (at least for these examples) if you have not yet set the camera's IP address to be on your network range please refer to the guide HERE



 

As you can see above we have selected "Stream" for our input and typed in our the URL as "rtsp://192.168.1.88/1" which is Tom's PTZOptics camera he has selected. Now once you click "OK" the camera feed will be available as a input. 



finally, if you have an NDI model camera or a camera that you purchased an NDI license for you are able to pull the camera in as an NDI source into Vmix is super easy as seen in the video below.
