Seervision Integrations

This page lists all the integrations of the Seervision Suite

Seervision currently supports the following categories:

PTZ Cameras


These neat little devices are fantastic for small-scale productions like a studio, where you still need a beautiful, punchy and high-definition image, but don't need the lens/camera versatility of a full-blown production company.

Panasonic PTZs

  • Panasonic AW-UE150 (recommended)
  • Panasonic AW-UE100 (recommended)
  • Panasonic AW-HE40/70/80
  • Panasonic AW-HE130

VISCA Over IP PTZs

VISCA has seen wide-spread adoption across the industry in many devices, and starting 2022 we're rolled out support for VISCA over IP to respond to that popularity. Due to the wide support of VISCA, we won't be listing all compatible devices on this page. Generally, if the device supports VISCA over IP, we will be able to steer it.

Note: Due to implementation particularities, it is likely that we will need to tune the VISCA control specifically for each type of device to get the best possible performance out. In other words, if you are planning to control a VISCA over IP device that we have not seen before, we will need some time to test that device and make sure we can tune it for best performance.

Control over VISCA Over IP

  • Canon CR-N300 (FreeD)
  • Canon CR-N500 (FreeD)
  • Sony BRC X400 (FreeD) / SRG X400 (no FreeD)
  • Sony SRG X120
  • Sony BRC H800
  • Birddog EYES P100
  • Birddog EYES P200
  • Vaddio RoboSHOT 40

Robotic Heads

The high-end devices. They're more expensive, but also the most versatile option out there, allowing you to mount nearly any type of camera/lens combination you can dream of.

Note: For Ross robotic heads, we suspect we actually support all of their robotics that have tracking data output, but we haven't been able to test this to confirm. Let us know if you would like to test a Ross head that isn't listed here, but has tracking data output!

  • Ross Furio VR100
  • Ross Furio VR600
  • Ross CamBot XY600
  • MRMC AFC100
  • MRMC SFH30
  • Seervision Pauli

Lenses

Different types of lenses will face different requirements to be used in combination with Seervision's products. 

Type of lens Requirements and specifications

Manual ENG lenses Requirements:

  • Lens rings have gears so that external lens motors can be applied.
  • Box lenses are not supported

Canon Digital ENG lenses Requirements:

  • Lens rings have gears so that external lens motors can be applied.
  • Box lenses are not supported

Fujinon Digital ENG lenses Requirements

  • Fujinon protocol v4.
  • Fujinon 10pin or 20pin serial output.
  • The robotic head must support Fujinon's digital protocol.

Photo lenses

  • Lenses have hard stops on the lens rings
  • Gear strips can be mounted on the lens
  • There is no iris support on photo lenses unless there is an iris lens ring

What about NDI®/LANC/other protocol?

As it stands, we don't offer support for any additional protocols. We've tested most of these at some point, and we found that the respective implementations did not allow for the kind of high-frequency communication that we need in order to guarantee smooth tracking performance.

Of course, as these protocols mature, there is no doubt that they will eventually achieve the performance that we require. If you think we're missing out on a particular protocol, don't hesitate to get in touch to let us know!
