VDESK Integrated PTZ Production Systems
RUSHCONTROLRobotics Control Software
RUSHCONTROL is the camera control utility embedded in VDESK, but also available as a standalone app for use on Windows OS devices. Use this app to add sophisticated camera, RUSHDOLLY and ATEM switcher control for production systems. Name and save/recall presets using a touch screen monitor.
Blackmagic ATEM Switchers
The PTX can be controlled directly from ATEM switchers using the DB9 connector (RS-422 serial) on the rear of the chassis. The only caveat is that you need to use one of the ATEM M/E control panels that has the PTZ joystick, or one of the latest all-in-one switchers that has the built-in joystick-style control.
VISCA over IP Controllers can be used effectively with the PTX Model 3 PRO head.Use IP network control and identify each Model 3 PRO fixture by its unique address.
The BABYZOOMER is a small servo kit for controlling zoomand optionally focus or iris on manual (non-powered) camera lenses. It mounts on the PTX Model 3 PRO pan/tilt head and translates VISCA commands into precision motor control for zoom lenses. The gear drive adapts to various zoom lenses from many manufacturers and supports the 8 zoom speeds available in VISCA protocol.
In addition to video cameras, the kit also provides lens control capability for a wide range of mirrorless and DSLR cameras.Add pan, tilt and zoom capability for virtually any camera … with the PTX Model 3 PRO pan/tilt head – and the BABYZOOMER lens servo kit.

The Model 3 PRO combines the best features of the previous models into a sleek, powerful and whisper-quiet precision robotic head that’s a great platform for any camera – from a Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4k or Pocket Cinema – to the URSA and new Studio Camera 4K styles, plus other larger form factors like Canon C models, Lumix Box Cinema, Red, Arri, and the Sony FX line. We’ve focused on VISCA over IP control for compatibility with a broad range of controllers, including the versatile product line from Skaarhoj. We’re working on integrating the company’s BLUE PILL network device with the Model 3 PRO to provide VISCA lens control for a wide variety of lenses from several manufacturers. The PTX Model 3 PRO is shipping a limited number of orders in August, so we encourage you to get a request in the queue now based on anticipated demand.
It just adds up. High global demand for our PTX Model 1 and Model 2 heads has depleted our inventory, and with continued long delays in component supply we’ve taken this opportunity to transition to our next generation PanTilt head - the PTX Model 3 PRO. It is designed and manufactured in Texas, USA where we have complete control of all components, software and firmware, thus minimizing the impact of parts shortages and unpredictable delivery times.
