Panasonic’s new software assists automatic tracking of a person shot by a Panasonic Remote Camera. With the ability to track a single person, this software is well suited to such environments as education and video conferencing.

When activated on a PC connected to the same network as your camera system, the software automatically detects a person in front of a PTZ camera, and makes the camera follow that person to allow for easier control operations.

The use of "motion detection" technology makes it possible to track the subject with minimum tracking error regardless of where the person is facing. This allows to keep the lecturer tracked even when is writing on a blackboard showing his/her back to the camera.

The sensitivity of the tracking function can be adjusted to the amount of movement of the tracking target, therefore increasing accuracy. 

All current Panasonic PTZ software is PC-based only.

Despite the fact that this software cannot fully control zoom function, it offers the ability to select either a full, full body or upper body view of the tracked target when setting up this software. In addition to this, the autotracking software also includes the option to mask specified areas of the camera view to ensure that surrounding objects are not accidentally or unnecessarily detected. It is also possible to completely exclude an entire area to minimise the space that is tracked.

It is possible to easily set up a simple, low-cost tracking system by installing Auto Tracking Software on a PC and connecting an integrated camera. New installation of sensors and other equipment are not necessary.

This software is available in two versions:  the Stand-alone version that is to be used on a single PC, and the Web application version that enables control from a tablet, smartphone or desktop PC. Users may install either of these according to their operating environment.
