You can create a PTZ tour with up to 64 preset points. Note the number of preset points also depends on your PTZ capacity.

To setup a PTZ camera tour using your Geovision system, follow these instructions:

  1. Click the Configure button, point to Accessories, and select Camera Mapping PTZ Dome. This camera mapping dialog box appears.
  2. Select a camera channel from the Camera drop-down list.
  3. Select the PTZ model connected to the selected channel from the Device drop-down list.
  4. If you have two identical PTZ cameras set in the system, you may use the Address drop-down list

    to choose the one with the correct address. Up to 64 addresses can be supported.

  5. Select Multi Position Tour on the Camera Mapping Setup dialog box, and click the Setting button. This dialog box appears.
  6. Select a Preset as a start point.
  7. Set the Dwell Time that the PTZ will remain in a preset.
  8. Click Add and repeat Steps 2-3 to build more points in the tour.
  9. Select Tour Schedule on the Camera Mapping Setup dialog box, and click the

    Setting button. This Tour Schedule dialog box appears.

  10. Select Span 1, specify a period of time, and select a camera behavior to be activated during the

    defined time period.

  11. Set another span.
  12. If you want to apply a different setting to weekends, select Weekend Apply and select a camera behavior. And define whether the weekend includes Saturday or not.
  13. Click OK to apply the settings.
