Etere Nunzio enables a single operator setup for live newsroom with the complete control of PTZ cameras directly in Rundown.

Etere Nunzio supports Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera control directly in Rundown. This is a FREE upgrade that enables a single-operator to control a live newsroom. Etere Nunzio users are able to connect to multiple PTZ cameras, view multiple sources in real-time, store and retrieve preset profiles directly from the rundown panel, all without additional studio automation hardware. The rundown panel also displays all running stories scheduled in the Newsroom system to be sent on-air, allowing journalists to view and directly edit the stories available. Etere takes your production to a higher level without increasing your budget.

From the rundown panel, users can select a camera to display PTZ data from Etere Playout Automation and subsequently store the data on the database. The integration allows a single operator to manage the complete operations of a live newsroom including all controls of the PTZ cameras. The responsive and intuitive interface replaces bulky and expensive hardware controllers, saving costs and increasing operational efficiency. PTZ cameras can be used in live news production environments with two main features, camera control and video switching. It also provides remote control via IP protocols and video output using 4K IP Streaming. PTZ cameras are able to manage camera angles that are impossible with conventional tripod setups. Additionally, PTZ cameras manage high speed panning and tilting features that allow coverage of larger areas, thus providing news creators with better performance and flexibility. Controlling the PTZ camera is easy using VISCA, a professional camera control protocol designed for use with PTZ cameras. From the Etere camera control panel, the operator is able to adjust the camera shuttle, gain, zoom, focus and iris controls in real-time.
