Professional series model Sarix cameras must be set to PTZ in order to use the focus commands in DS

Issue

DS will not discover the Professional series cameras as a PTZ model, they have to be manually set up as PTZ in order to use the focus commands. This may need to be set up in third party systems also.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management

Environment

DS video recorders

Professional series Sarix cameras

Cause

The DS video management does not see the Professional series cameras as a PTZ, instead it sees them as a dome camera. Thus the focus function does not come up for display.

Resolution

Manually set the camera to a PTZ and the focus features can be used
