Marshall Electronics just told rAVe the they intend to launch a new 4K version of its NDI PTZ cameras (the CV730-BHN) late Q3 and it will have 30x optical zoom along with NDI, NDI |HX and simultaneous 12GSDI/HDMI 2.0 outputs. Also planned for later this year, Marshall will release its CV620-BI with 20x optical zoom 3GSDI, HDMI and IP/HEVC/SRT, and the CV620-BN with 20x optical zoom 3GSDI, HDMI and NDI |HX cameras.
For now, the company is focused on two new models of its CV630 with 3GSDI/HDMI: one with IP/HEVC/SRT (CV630-IP) and one with NDI |HX (CV630-NDI). The CV730 with larger 1/1.8” sensor with 12GSDI/HDMI comes in two versions as well: one with IP/HEVC/SRT (CV730-IP) and one with NDI |HX (CV730-NDI). In addition, the CV730 is equipped with the added convenience of a USB 3.0 for videoconference and PC/Mac workflows. The CV355-30X with 3GSDI/HDMI comes in two options: one with IP/HEVC/SRT (CV355-30X-IP) and one with NDI |HX (CV355-30X-NDI). The CV420-30X also comes in two variants: one with IP/HEVC/SRT (CV420-30X-IP) and one with NDI |HX (CV420-30X-NDI).
In addition, Marshall has added additional tools that can be used to support setup and operation of the entire PTZ and Zoom camera lines. One tool is the Home Run RS232/RS422 Splitter Extender Box (RS7-HR), available now, that splits control of one controller via CAT cable to up to seven cameras while extending usable length of cable runs by two (2x) fold for RS232 or RS422. For PTZ controllers, choose from two different models from the entry-level VS-PTC-200 or the advanced broadcast-style VS-PTC-IP model with individual dial control of Exposure, Iris, White Balance and Focus with a rocker seesaw for zoom and flexible IP/RS232/RS422 support. Finally, encasing every model in IP68 housings for outdoor use is also now possible with CV-H20-HF for fixed position models, CV6XX-HFH for CV600-series and CV7XX-HFH for the CV700-series, all with heaters and fans for environment control.
