Marshall Expands Miniature Camera Line with USB-Powered Camera for Streaming and Collaborative Applications

Marshall Electronics announces the release of a new addition to its line of miniature cameras for broadcast and ProAV, the CV502-U3 High-Definition USB POV Camera.

Designed for plug-and-play connectivity on any Mac, PC or Linux system supporting USB 3.0 input infrastructure, the CV502-U3 uses video capture drivers included with common computer software and soft codecs. Through the use of UVC 1.5, common teleconference and video capture programs can adapt best resolution and frame rate for optimal performance. Marshall also offers free downloadable software for manual adjustment and control where applications require it.

Using the same sensor and processor Marshall’s CV502, CV505 and CV565 miniature cameras, the CV502-U3 delivers up to 1920x1080p resolution at 60/59.94/50 frame rates. With a very low 0.2 lux (color) rating, Marshall says that the CV502-U3 captures accurate, sharp color images even under low-light conditions. The CV502-U3 ships with an ultra-wide 2.3mm 126° Angle-of-View (AOV) HD lens that is interchangeable to customize for specific applications. Marshall offers a wide assortment of lens options for a fully-customizable AOV and focal length per camera position within an installation.

Here are all the tech specs.
