Talk:Eye in the sky (camera)

I'm not sure that the correlation between "eye in the sky" and "pan tilt zoom" is correct. PTZ refers to a specific capability of a type of camera (surveillance or otherwise) where "eye in the sky" refers to an entire system of cameras. loom 04:25, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Two axes of 360 degree movement?[edit]

"which allow almost two axes of 360-degree movement"

I have not researched this, but I find it hard to believe. I would expect a camera to have 360 degrees of rotation, so it can look fowards, backwards, left and right, as well as 90 degree tilt, so that it can look straight or down. Two axes of 360 degree movement seems a little strange-- 04:24, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

  • better yet is that it says "almost two degrees". Wouldn't that just be one?  ;) It should also be 2 degrees of rotation, so I'm changing that too and removing the number of degrees to be more broad. Blue Dinosaur Jr 05:46, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
Typically they can rotate 360 degrees in two directions. Usually when installed, they are only able to move 360 degrees along on axis and 180 degrees on the other (allowing the camera to look behind itself without rotating) but commonly have the ability to do 360 both ways just in case they may have need of the greater range. - 19:59, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
In addition, as of this post, most casinos cameras are fixed and are not PTZs. The "also known as" part should be removed since PTZs are a small subset of casino & retail cameras. There is no cost-increase-justifying need for a PTZ over a doorway, table game, or cash register. AddBlue (talk) 10:23, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
