The PTZ-HD-20 is an infrared PTZ camera with 4 selectable video modes: Analog CCTV, AHD, HD-TVI, and HDCVI. This pan tilt zoom camera supports 1080p resolution (AHD, HD-TVI, and HDCVI modes) and 960H resolution in traditional analog CCTV mode (CVBS). This camera has built-in infrared night vision so that it can see in complete darkness. The PTZ-HD-20 has a 20x optical zoom range via the 4.7 ~ 90mm lens and a max IR distance of 300 feet (92 meters) which allows the camera to see in zero light environments. This pan, tilt, and zoom dome security camera has a 1/3" Sony image sensor. Please check out this demo video and these sample surveillance images of the PTZ-HD-20 installation on the front of CCTV Camera Pros warehouse.
This camera is enclosed in an IP66 rated outdoor dome housing that safeguards against harsh weather, dust, humidity, and acts of vandalism. The PTZ-HD-20 is hard wired to a DVR using RG59 coaxial cable. This camera can be used with the following DVR types: analog CCTV, AHD, HD-TVI, HDCVI. CCTV Camera Pros typically supplies this camera with our iDVR-PRO surveillance DVRs which supports PTZ over coax.
The PTZ-HD-20 supports Pelco D and Pelco P protocols as well as UTC (up the coax). UTC transmits the PTZ controls over the same RG59 cable used for video (so there is no need to run an additional pair of cables). For use in low light environments, this camera has a color Lux rating of 0.1 and a Black and White Lux rating of 0.01.
The PTZ-HD-20 has 10 giant LEDs that provide an effective Infrared range of up to 92 meters / 300 feet. The IR LED illuminators automatically activate when the camera senses low light beyond the capability of the lux ratings. An IR Cut Filter enhances the image quality by blocking any unusable infrared lighting and only allowing the visible light to pass through.
This camera supports an endless 360° pan, up to 220 individual preset points and wall mount bracket for easy installation.
The 24VAC 3 Amp power supply required for this camera is included. Important: please refer to this power cable guide for max distances that power cable can be run.

This video was captured with the PTZ-HD-20 installed outside at CCTV Camera Pros office. Watch the video to see how well a street sign that is 550 feet can be read when zoomed in on.
CCTV Camera Pros has a PTZ-HD-20 mounted to the wall on the front of our office. This camera allows us to monitor the entire front area of our building and parking lot.
The following images were captured using the PTZ-HD-20 installed at our office. It is connected to an iDVR-PRO DVR in 1080p HD-TVI mode.
This camera monitors the front of CCTV Camera Pros warehouse. In this first image, the camera's lens is zoomed out to the widest angle.
This is the PTZ controls screen on the iDVR-PRO DVR. In addition to the pan tilt zoom controls, you can see the scan, tour, and preset options.
The Power of 20x Zoom
There is a street sign located 550 feet away from where the above arrow is pointing.
In this image, the 20x optical zoom lens is zoomed all the way into the intersection where the sign is located. The "Right Lane MUST Turn Right" sign that you see in this image is 550 feet away from where the camera is mounted!
Infrared Video Surveillance
These surveillance images were captured at night time to test the infrared night mode of the camera. Please note that there are street lights in our parking lot and in the areas surrounding our building, but this is typical for most commercial outdoor installations. This camera will also work well in areas where there is no light.
This image was captured with the camera lens zoomed all the way out to the widest angle. This is an overview of the main entrance to our parking lot.
This image was captured with the lens zoomed to the 18x level. The closer vehicle in the picture is parked 375 feet away from the camera. The white Mercedes is located 460 feet away.
The PTZ-HD-20 supports UTC, which stands for "Up The Coax". It is a technology that allows the video and PTZ commands to both transmit over the same RG59 coax cable.
This is how to wire this UTC compatible PTZ to a DVR. In this example, we are using an iDVR-PRO hybrid DVR.
You can find our complete PTZ camera controller and installation guide here.
- Blue Wire - RG59 coax cable is run from the PTZ camera to a video input on the DVR. This will transmit the video signal and pan tilt zoom commands.
- Red Wire - Power cable, typically 18/2 stranded power wire is run from the camera to a multi-camera power supply box or the single camera power transformer that is supplied with the camera. *Please note that installers can use RG59 Siamese cable which contains both RG59 coax and 18/2 power cable to run both power and video / UTC cables.
- Green Wire - Optionally, the DVR is connected to a router / Internet connection using CAT-5e cable if the user wants to enable remote viewing and remote PTZ control via mobile apps and desktop software for Mac or Windows.
