A pattern is a user-defined, viewable camera path with a definite beginning and end. Patterns are made up of a sequence of standard pan, tilt
and lens commands. Patterns are stored in the internal memory of the PTZ device, such as a Spectra® dome, that is conn ected to the DX8000.
Depending on the type and configuration of the PTZ device, the DX8000 can address up to four unique PTZ patterns. Once defined, a pattern can
be activated with a series of on-screen commands. A pattern will run continuously until it is deactivated.
Only PTZ-enabled cameras that support pattern programming through D, P, or Coaxitron protocols can use this feature.
