PTZ webcam (pan tilt zoom) control through TouchDesigner

Does anyone have any suggestions for affordable PTZ webcams (pan tilt zoom) that can be controlled through TouchDesigner? If anyone has any experience controlling a PTZ cam in TD, I would appreciate any information on your workflow/setup. I did find this post from a company, but the price for their PTZ USB cameras was very high ($1,800+).


I think you’re going to have to spend a lot of money for a PTZ camera (1k+ usd) that supports what you’re after.

We’ve programmed AXIS cameras in the past. They’re incredible to work with, and support TCP/IP connections from TouchDesigner to control their movement. Controlling devices in this way is definitely pro-level functionality, but I’m curious if anyone knows about anything more affordable than AXIS for this sort of thing.
