How are you using the PTZ cameras? Running position cues from Isadora/Qlab/other?The cv350 is only a 10x optical zoom. Then we got 2 PTZOptics 30x zooms.
All 3 are about 65’ from the plaster line. The Marshall we don’t zoom at all since we’d have to physically climb up to it or use the crappy small remote, but it was always intended to be a full stage shot for us.
The PTZ cameras can zoom in to a light switch on the upstage wall about 100’ away and you can “almost” read the labels. But generally speaking we can get a decently clear chest up tight focus about 75’ away with no problems.
This video doesn’t include the Marshall camera but all the tight shots are from the PTZ cameras (the thumbnail is a good example) with the exceptions of the wider on stage shots.
