    Re: PTZ cameras equipped with IR illuminators

    Hello Iraq,

    Your questions are all good ones, but not easily answered. I will however tackle them each as best as I can.

    1. "What is the best PTZ camera equipped with IR illuminator?"

    Answer: Who knows? What is your application. Unfortunately, without designing the application first, there is no right answer. If you intend to install this in the desert, then you need a housing and mechanics that can stand up to heavy wind and sand. If you intend to install in a quiet courtyard, then a smaller unit is needed. If in a Port, then you need the reach of kilometers. This is why this answer cannot be given. However, there are several good companies that you can find on the internet that should be able to offer you some support. Look for well established companies and then ask for references and ask about support policies.

    2. "How practical is using PTZ dome cameras for outdoor usage and traffic control?"

    Again, the application is not well defined. if traffic control is a matter of working with traffic lights and monitoring traffic, then a fixed camera is best. If the PTZ is to be used to support various fixed positions to give the viewer the ability to come in for better detail, then you are in business.

    3. "What control system do you propose as for the PTZ cameras?"

    Unfortunately, this is definitely a question that I cannot answer. I would be sued by one manufacturer or another. However, the best one to use is the one that fits your application, has the features that you need, is supplied by a manufacturer with a good reputation and a good service / replacement, support program in place. Again, ask around and base your decision upon the application first and good business second. You will do fine. One thing is to look for something that doesn't lock you into a specific technology. It could cause you problems if you expand your system in the future.

    I know that this all sounds a bit vague, but I hope it helps.
