The modular control board allows users to quickly select different cameras views and search through recorded video. Modules include:

- AXIS T8311 Video Surveillance Joystick, a three-axis joystick with a turn knob for pan/tilt/zoom control and six push buttons;

Each modular unit can be purchased and used separately or together as one unit, and are easy to install using the USB interface. When using the complete control board, the modules are interconnected via a USB interface, with the AXIS T8312 Keypad serving as a hub.
