The Triplett CamView PTZ is a multi-function test tool designed to aid CCTV and Security electronics installers and maintenance technicians. A color LCD video monitor allows viewing of security camera images to verify their operation and setup. The CamView's keyboard allows control and setup of the camera's PTZ (Pan, Tilt, Zoom) functions (if so equipped) via a standard RS-485, RS-422, or RS-232 interface. A Color Bar Generator provides a standard test signal to check video cables, video recorders, and video monitors. LAN cable can also be tested using the CamView's built-in cable tester.
