PTZ patterns can be created for some Sony cameras through the preset tour feature.

What you should know

A Sony preset tour is similar to a Security Center PTZ pattern; it is a series of presets (including camera position, iris, and focus settings) which can run in Security Desk or Config Tool the same as any other PTZ pattern. Refer to your Sony's camera’s documentation for more information on preset tours.


  1. Define PTZ presets for the camera.
  2. Create a preset tour on the unit's web page.

After you finish

Test the PTZ pattern.
