Dahua makes several PTZ cameras. Here is one example of a 4K PTZ: https://us.dahuasecurity.com/product/30x-ir-ptz-dome-3/

Here is their full lineup: https://us.dahuasecurity.com/product-ca ... rk/page/1/

A suggestion for you would be to revisit the 4K requirement. If you have a large optical zoom, is 4K still needed? Most of the PTZs that Dahua offers are 2MP because it offers better low-light capabilities. Your needs will dictate the answer to this question. In a 2MP offering, the even have a couple that have laser-based IR that can illuminate a target several hundred yards away!

I am also looking for a good PTZ - I would like the best image quality available (in a camera up to $3k or so) but low light conditions are the most relevant. Does this mean that I am better off with a 2 megapixel camera than 4 megapixels or 4K? I was looking at hikvision but can look at Dahua or anyone else.

Thank you
